It has been 4 years since I was last at the Fisherman's Restaurant & Bar and I was excited to be back on the island and visiting my old favs. There have been big changes, but also some things have stayed the same. The big change from my last visit is the amazing new location they have, directly onto the... More

The only place on the island that ticked all of our boxes. Amazing food, fantastic service, tasty cocktails, perfect view and atmosphere. We shared the large tapas, followed by the seafood curry and steamed local fish. We weren't disappointed, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and ensure that everything is cooked to suit everyone's taste buds (this is very rare to... More

It is a wonderful relaxing evening under the stars, feet in the sand and great ambient music to add to the whole experience. I recently had the curry seafood salad which was delicious.

Me and my boyfriend ate here for our last night on Koh Phangan and it was lovely. The food was the nicest we had eaten in a long time (including from back home), the staff were great and we sat in the boat which looked out over the beach. We were surprised at how well priced everything was and even... More

Great little restaurant in an island that does not have a lot of options as far as fine dining goes. The owner was there and came over to ask us about the food. Everything was so professional and the food was delicious

Went here for a friend's birthday and had a lovely night. Great ambiance, relaxed atmosphere, good service and beautiful food. Took the kids and they played down on the beach whilst we continued eating. Owner came up to ensure we were happy. Organised candles for the cake and everything. Really nice night.

The food was very good, perhaps I made the wrong choice with the fish and chips but everyone else's good seemed delicious. The ambiance is great and the setting is awesome, the service though was quite average, with some of the staff being quite blunt and unwelcoming at times. Average service, good food :)

Hello Luke M, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Recently through a process of elimination we reduced the number of western dishes on our menu by speaking to some of our regulars and tourists. We actually found that our Fish and Chips dish was the most popular especially because it is served with our Chefs... More

Wonderful restaurant, without a doubt our favourite location on our recent trip to Koh Phanang. Fantastic local fresh cooked fish, the restaurant is stunning, and with very attentive service. Loved being able to move down to lounger on the beach afterwards for a cocktail. Thanks Fishermans! :-)
