This was something the same but different, in a nice way. Rather than getting takeaway food as usual, we thought we would eat the takeaway where it is cooked. We were very happy with our meals, the fish was very fresh and can be ordered...More

We went there based on trip advisors ratings and were very looking forward to it when we were so hungry. However the food is too battered and oily, service wasnt good. Price was reasonable though. Overall not worth going, management should seriously review the quality...More

We ate fish and chips and quid rings and they were very nice. The price is also good. I would recommend it.

I hadn't eaten here in a while and was stunned at how poor my lunch was. The serving of grilled Gurnard I ordered was small, overcooked and I'm not convinced that it hadn't been cooked from frozen. Their slogan used to be "we catch it...More

We were at a different place down the road that was recommended to us but it was rather small and crowded plus nothing really suited my children. So as we had walked past earlier we decided to give it a try. It was nice and...More

Excellent food and great service with a large variety of locally sourced seafood. We had the beer battered sole with shoe string chips and the salad I ordered was fresh and had the most delicious dressing.

Haven't been for a while but wanted a quick oyster fix and we're in the neighbourhood. It's looking a bit tired inside and a quick check of reviews here made us a little worried about what we were in for. At $40 a dozen you...More

This used to be a favorite haunt for us for a cheap dinner out, now it has gone seriously downhill. Chips didn't come salted and the fish servings are expensive and small at $7 and I'm sure the crumbed monk fish and crumbed gunard was...More

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.
