FISHERMAN’S RESTAURANT & BAR
62/1 Moo1 | Ban Tai Pier, Ko Pha Ngan 84280, Thailand
Opening Hours: 13:00 – 22:00, Mondays to Sundays
One of the most raved about restaurants on TripAdvisor, Fisherman’s Restaurant is known for their wide array of fresh seafood. The best part? It’s cooked with Thai sauces from a secret family recipe, or grilled to perfection. The restaurant’s specialty is the yellow crab curry. For a good value feast, get their large seafood platter if you’re dining with a group.
As the restaurant only has 14 tables, make sure to book in advance. Take note that if you are booking an early evening slot, you’ll only have a table for 2 hours. Don’t fret, though – just book at a later time to have a long dinner or chill in their bar area after your meal.
Pro tip: They do have some special tables in 3 Thai long boats. For a novel ambiance to complete the experience, try to score one of these VIP seats.

THE PHANTIP NIGHT MARKET
Ko Pha-ngan, Ko Pha-ngan District, Surat Thani 84280, Thailand
Opening Hours: 12:00-22:00, Monday to Sunday
Sometimes called the Thong Sala Night Market because it is found on Thong Sala Road, it has a food market that’s perfect for anyone looking for a seafood feast on a budget.

You can also find a variety of sushi sold at reasonable prices or maybe even dare to make your own Pad Thai.
