The restaurant is designed very nicely with a lovely lounge area towards the beach where you can have delicious cocktails after your dinner. The service was perfect and the seafood was one of the best I ever had.

Food was exceptional, especially the red curry crab, washed down with a glass of prosecco. Views across the beach and out to the bay of Thailand made the evening meal very memorable. All wrapped up with excellent service from the staff. Highly recommended.

We have been coming to fisherman's for the last 8 years in their old place and the new current place. We have never been disappointed regarding food and service.

Fantastic spot only a short walk from where I'm staying. The happy hour at the bar is a great change from tradition with a different drink offered for HH price each weekday + a great choice of $4 food offerings different each day. The staff is first class, and I really mean that. These folks take goofs care of you... More
