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.

A great little restaurant right next to the kayak rentals. We ate really well, served by friendly staff. Strong fly recommend a visit if you are nearby.

Small restaurant in quiet Marahau alongside Tasman Bay. Great service and wonderful food. Thanks to Jim and Sue Fraser at Fraser Highlands for this recommendation.

Zoe gave my wife and I great tips on spots to check out during our trip to NZ! The coffee and beer at the cafe was also fantastic!

Myself and my partner had our wedding on Fishermans island and for sentimental reasons wanted our evening meal with our family to be at Hooked on Marahau.

From the moment we sat down, Zoe the owner gave us her personal attention and made everybody feel looked after. The menu we got was somewhat personalised for our party which was so appreciated and the food we received was delicious.

A huge thank you to Zoe and her team for all their efforts... Big recommended from us :)
