Description: Being NZ's most iconic dish, Fish Hook takes a new approach to revive the reputation of kiwi 'fush and chups' as we know it. Providing the highest quality fresh fish caught from our own boat in the local waters off the southern coast. We offer a wide range of species to choose from, Blue Cod, Sole, Monk and Gurnard just to name a few. Choose to have your fresh fish beer battered, crumbed or grilled (for those looking for a healthy option).Team this with your choice of shoestring, chunky McCain's fries or Kumera fries (sweet potato), a variety of sauces or pick from the range of fresh salads to create your ideal fish and chip meal.If you want to get a bit fancy or try something different there's also calamari rings,scallops, sweet chilli prawn skewers or salt n pepper squid to name a few of your options and if you need something to quench your thurst. Local ales such as the classic southern Speights or Emersons are available along with a fine pick of wines and non alcoholic beverages.Locally owned and operated. Take away or sit in and enjoy a warm friendly atmosphere in the heart of Dunedin city.

There were people dining in, eating grilled fish, chips and salad. They seemed to be enjoying it.

We purchased 1 piece of grilled fish, 2 pieces of battered fish, 5 squid rings and two scoops of fish, $29.00 to takeaway.

We only had a 3 minute trip in our car back to out motel. However by the time we got there the grilled fish was luke warm.
Also the battered fish very greasy. The squid rings were nice as were the very generous two scoops of chips.

Overall I think it was too expensive. That's a shame because, the shop looks clean and inviting. Might have to stick to the dingy, but ok fish and chips down the road.

Saw a picture of 007 James Bond Daniel Craig posing with the owner. Fried Fish is of the breaded type and is fresh and good. But frankly, many places serve fresh fish for less than what I paid for. Not too expensive but not cheap either.

The staff was very helpful and friendly making you feel very welcome. Had the Blue Cod with Fries which was good. The beer batter was very light and fluffy not too overwhelming. Service was fast as well. Great place to get a quick fish lunch or dinner at a great price.

We saw a lot of people dining there and wanted something simple and not fancy with good fish, and this place was perfect. We had the blue cod and the squid and both were excellent-- highly recommended!
