We just searched for the food restaurant on the island and we were not disappointed. It's a lounge restaurant with delicious food, good prices, clean restrooms and very well speaking English personal. I would definitely recommend it after we saw the real Thai street food.

Beautiful atmosphere and great fresh food! A little pricey but they're one of the few places that accept credit cards. Awesome cocktails too!

Hello, Thank you so much for taking some time to leave us a review. Great to hear that you tried one of our crab dishes as they are the freshest and yummiest thing that we offer due to them being kept alive in a tank out front. We hope that you did or do come back to visit us again!... More

You feel valued and comfortable here. The staff is very professional and thoughtful. And the food is just delicious. We ordered the small BBQ platter - enough for a couple combined with small tapas as starter and mouse au chocolat and brownie. Just perfect.

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
