10 Best Seafood Restaurants in Phuket

Recommended Phuket Seafood Dining Spots

Phuket is renowned for its fresh seafood and it’s almost a rite of passage for visitors to have at least one seafood dinner during their stay on the island. All that is well and good, but one surprising aspect of the seafood dining scene in Phuket is the wide range of restaurants serving fish and the plenty of choices of style, design and environment available for enjoying preparations of shrimp, crab, lobster, calamari and many other fresh catches.

Here are Phuket’s top seafood dining spots that range from simple but immensely enjoyable floating restaurants to well-established island icons of this particular cuisine – the only common denominator being the fare served.
