Hooked does a very good job with fish, and the service is excellent. We enjoyed our salmon and the portions are generous.

Had a great meal in this (one of only two eateries in Marahau) with my wife. Awesome steak and chips (massive) with Chimchurri. Very well presented meat and seafood dishes. Good drinks selection and service - recommended.

Description
Hooked on Marahau is a cafe and beer garden located on the Marahau waterfront; 1.5Km from the start of the Abel Tasman National Park's Coastal Track. Hooked has arguably the best view in the area with vistas across Tasman Bay and north along the Astrolabe to Adele and Fisherman's Islands in the Abel Tasman. We serve cafe style breakfast and lunches with barista coffee and homemade baked goods. We also have a daily happy hour from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Dinner is bistro style with local wines and locally brewed craft beers.
