Ate here once and returned for drinks on second occasion. Really nice place, friendly staff, food and drinks are excellent . Seafood platter is very enjoyable. The ambiance is nice and there is a good view of the sunset.

Amazing spot for sunset and delicious Thai food. The ambience is amazing. The Tom Kha and Tom Yum were some of the best soup we had in all of Thailand.

Hello Chelsea L, Thank you for such wonderful feedback. Our Tom Yum soup is the most popular dish with our thai customers, often they will come in and order it for takeaway! At fishermans we try not only to give you 'delicious' food but service and ambience to match. We all hope you are able to visit us again soon.... More

Welcomed by warm friendly staff we were lead to our table decorated by candles, sea shells and quaint overhanging lanterns. The soft light from the candles and lanterns together with just the perfect background music created a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. The food was absolutely delicious and I can recommend the fishcakes as an appetiser, yum!

It would be a harsh reviewer to knock Fishermans and after our second visit there remains no reason to do so. We have dined here twice before at night, the atmosphere is romantic plus and the restaurant is a sight to behold. The food surpasses all else about Fisherman's - it is sublime - try the fish cakes - they're... More

However, I went with a friend and we both ordered seafood dishes and were both thoroughly disappointed. It may have been because it was our first encounter with seafood in Thailand, but neither of us enjoyed or finished our... More
