I came here in the evening and has a very nice setting in the evening. Romantic if u are with your partner. It's on a beach so overlooks sea and has nice lights everywhere. More pricier than normal Thai restaurants but worth it if you want to treat yourself!

I have visited this place a dozen or more times during my trips in and out of Thailand, I always make it a point to come here. Last time I was here was during rainy season, the people at Fishermans' made a perfect atmosphere even in the bad weather, with candles and kept the rain away. I highly recommend any... More

Just to add to the already excellent reviews of fisherman's - it's brilliant! We had the squid, king prawns and crab special curry as well as a few cocktails, and were absolutely stuffed! The atmosphere is spot on- just off the beach, with beautiful mood lighting (lanterns and candles throughout), and a variety of different areas to sit (including a... More

Came here because of its high TripAdvisor ranking and was very pleased. First and foremost - the service. We had an infant in our group and the staff were very helpful with a baby seat etc. They were very attentive with everything else but found a good balance so weren't over the top. The food was exceptional. We ordered a... More

Took my girlfriend here for a romantic meal, layout was so intimate and perfectly set, lanterns dim lights etc. Had the fish cakes, prawns and crab in garlic and pepper tasted amazing - was the first time having crab so was a struggle getting all the meat out from the shell. Was reasonably priced too, paid £24 for one starter... More

Fisherman's restaurant is such a special place to eat and relax with friends. Authentic fresh food from traditional Thai fishing family & excellent well-trained staff. We were a big party of 14 spread over 2 tables and couldn't have felt more welcome, even with my 15 month little boy who they kept happy and entertained throughout our meal. We didn't... More
