Good quality food at a reasonable cost. We found then staff to be friendly and the food delicious. Their beer was particularly nice. It is worth the drive from Keiteriteri.

Friendly staff and nicely decorated/layed out restaurant. Although the food was tasty, despite the fish dish we had having far too much oil on it, we didnt feel it was good value for money and felt disapointed by the experience.

Despite reading some of the reviews we had an outstanding experience at Hooked. The food was next level. We had the fish and raw salad. The flavours were impeccable, absolutely delicious. We are staying in Kaiteriteri and will most definitely be back.

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.
