This is just a small stall in the corner of the market area next to Bite Time. There are only a few tables. The Fishermans platter was soooo good - a massiive platter of an assortment of raw fish, rice and salad.

Very friendly staff. The coffee, cakes and main meals are excellent. The cafe is near the night markets and other small shops that you can mooch around in during the day. Great atmospher at this location.

We were recommended this place by local fishing charters. It was the best raw fish we had on our entire stay, also had the marlin cooked with blue vein sauce and it was delish! Hidden gem - worth the visit
