The food is the best we have had in Thailand (actually probably the best we have had anywhere), the quality is exceptional and the atmosphere is just wonderful. It's advisable to book and we arrive slightly early to allow for pre dinner cocktails (which are... More

The best seafood dining experience on Koh Phangan! Between 3 people we shared a massive salad, lobster, prawns, large starter platter and beer. Came around to 700 baht each if not mistaken. Most will agree Fishermans as the top seafood choice on Koh Phangan.

Food was exceptional, especially the red curry crab, washed down with a glass of prosecco. Views across the beach and out to the bay of Thailand made the evening meal very memorable. All wrapped up with excellent service from the staff. Highly recommended.

Hello John C, Sounds like you had a great and 'memorable' evening with us! The crab as you probably saw are kept alive in a tank out front which ensures they are as fresh as could possibly be and are one of our favourited items on the menu.
