Best dinner restaurants in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan island offers various cuisines for dinner - from meat to vegan options, everyone will find suitable places to eat here. I would say in general service has been outstanding everywhere we have been to so far. People are so welcoming and really trying to make an effort to make your evening memorable.


One if not the most unique restaurants on the island. They serve a pescatarian tasting menu dinner, around seven dishes. Their menu is fresh and made according to the goods they find from the market, so it is usually different every time.

They also serve interesting homemade cocktails like Pumpkin Margarita. Everything is super delicious and we really enjoyed our dinner.

It is a great place for some special event or date night with your partner.

Opening times: Friday & Saturday 6:30PM - 11PM



The best seafood restaurant on the island. Everything is so fresh and organic. They have very good service and offer totally different cocktails that we are used to, for example Breakfast in Burma or Barracuda.

Very unique surroundings like fishing boats converted into seating, soft lighting and rustic design creates a relaxing atmosphere.

Their seafood platter is a must try.

Opening times: 2PM - 10PM


L’Alcove Koh Phangan

Probably the most popular restaurant on the island. They serve French dishes and Thai fusion food but this bistro is way more than only that.

Located at the beach you can watch one of the most beautiful sunsets there. Fridays and Saturdays from 6-11 pm they have different entertainment like musicians, singers, dancers and fire shows. This place gets really lively and you can have a fun evening there companioned by delicious food and cocktails.

Opening times: Wednesday to Sunday 5:30PM - 12AM


Senses Koh Phangan

Senses is a modern French restaurant.

Really chic and relaxed ambience, French inspired cuisine with fine wines. They have many daily promotions going on which you can check from their Instagram stories.

We call Senses restaurant ‘fancy burger restaurant’, because we love their burgers from organic meat and good wine with it.

Opening times: 5:30PM - 11:30PM (Sunday closed)


Sirtaki Taverna

Authentic Greek restaurant. Delicious food with big portions, very friendly stuff and simple interior. Chicken souvlaki plate is my recommendation there.

Traditional Italian restaurant on the island. If you like authentic Italian pizza this is a place to go.

Delicious food, great service and cosy interior. Diavola pizza and Tiramisu are a must try there.

Outlaws Saloon Koh Phangan

Our favourite steakhouse on the island. Great selection of flame grilled steaks, burgers and even fish.

We have tried all three of them, everything has been so juicy and delicious. Service has also been on point every time. Ribeye is a must try there.

Opening times: 3PM - 12AM


Pum Pui Restaurant

Popular restaurant that serves authentic Thai food. Nothing fancy, simple place with great service and delicious food. Pineapple fried rice is a must try.

Siri’s island café

Our favourite every day restaurant. We have been there so many times and still can’t get enough of it. I think they serve the most delicious Thai food on the island.

Siri is an amazing cook and puts a lot of her heart in the food. It’s a small place with friendly stuff so you feel like going to their home for dinner.

Everything is so delicious - from appetisers like spicy crispy prawns and fried calamari to main dishes. Siri’s signature dish is Khao Soi Barracuda and it is a must try for sure.

Opening times: 11AM - 11PM


NENA Locanda Italiana

The best sushi restaurant on the island. Lots of different choices, fresh ingredients mixed with well combined flavours. Dragon Roll is a must try.

Friendship Concept

If you are looking for meatless burgers on the island then this is the place. Their menu is mouth-watering and the burger variety is for every taste.

Each burger has a choice of three different vegan patties and a drink recommendation. We tried ‘fish’ burger and Big Mac, which really tasted the same as McDonald's.

The restaurant atmosphere is warm and trendy, service is friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended to check out this place.
