I didn't have the best experience on the island when it came to food, but the fishermans restaurant was top notch!! The drinks were delicious. The fried shrimp .. I'll probably dream about forever. We loved the location. The food was fresh and they had the cutest set up! Definitely have a dinner here :)

Went there with a bunch of friends for a birthday dinner and we all loved it! Lovely atmosphere, helpful staff and excellent food. The only restaurant for fine dining on Koh Phangan, I would say, but considering the quality of the food prices are still very low. And they had delicious Thai food choices too for the non-fish-eaters in our... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating here after we found our first choice restaurant was closed. After our meal at Fisherman's, I can assure you it is NOT a second choice restaurant. If you visit Koh Phangan...this should be your first choice. The atmosphere is stunning, the food is amazing, and the staff incredibly attentive. The menu... More

The food was good, but not excellent. A bit annoying we were asked if everything was fine, way after we had dinner... The prices were pretty high for thai standards and the portions o.k.

Hello HansieVS, This review is a little disappointing to us as you have said that the food was only good but you have left no indication as to what you had to eat. Therefore it doesn't help others reading this or help us to improve or grow. You have said that the prices are high for Thai standards but as... More

Probably like many people here mining the restaurant section of trip advisor, being a foodie I feel obligated to work through the top recommendations on the forum when traveling. I'm also honest enough to admit that after many years of eating high quality food I am a hard customer to please in the restaurant scene, to an extent where my... More

Pricy but worth it! Try the curry soup. Atmosphere is also great. Easy to find but may need reservation on holiday.
