5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

this place was just the most perfect restaurant we visited while on Koh Phangan, the ocean view only added to the lovely set up inside the restaurant itself, staff were always on hand for anything we need, service was quick and the fish was cooked perfectly everyone heading to koh phangan need to try this place at least once

“Super yummy food in beautiful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Must be one of the best restaurants on the island. Really nice location, super staff and amazing food and drinks. Really peaceful and idyllic settings. if you are on the island and what a fancy-ish seafood dinner, go here.

“Fresh food in a unique set up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

I have decided to go to Fisherman's after the good reviews and I was satisfied with my experience.

The restaurant set up is very nice and atmospheric. The possibility of eating in a real fishermen boat add that touch of difference (I would have eaten in one but my husband said it was way too uncomfortable).

We had fish cakes and clams as starters and prawns with curry and fish and chips as mains. All was delicious...a special mention goes to the fact that fresh fish was used both for fish cakes and fish and chips which gives a total new dimension to what we usually eat in the west. The best of all are definitely the clams.

I have to be honest that what is really nice in this restaurant is the service which is excellent. ..at least our waiter was..but all seemed very attentive and efficient.

I definitely recommend it...prices are similar to a restaurant I Europe so on the high side for Phangan.

Book beforehand as it's always full.

“One of the best meals in Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Had this restaurant recommended to me by another traveler, and absolutely loved it. Was told to call ahead and book a boat, got a reservation no problem, and it was during Full Moon weekend so the island was packed. Our party of 4 had a lovely evening of cocktails and dinner in the large boat, service was great and the owner came over to check on us multiple times to make sure we were enjoying our experience, always a nice touch.
