With cuisine created from the very best locally sourced produce, Hooked serves a la carte meals along with fresh house-baked goods and the best barista coffee you’ll find anywhere! Hooked is open from October to May each year to coincide with the peak visitor period.

Hooked runs a popular happy hour every day from 4:00PM to 6:00PM with a selection of local craft beers and local wines included. Local Marahau village residents and visitors to the Abel Tasman National Park converge on Hooked each afternoon to sit, chat, quench thirsts and welcome the stunning sunsets across Tasman Bay.

Hooked was established in 2002 by the Alborn family. Zoe Alborn has managed Hooked since its opening day and remains just as obsessed as she has ever been to delivering a wonderful dining experience for every visitor.

The interior of Hooked has two beach-house style dining rooms, both of which are adorned with an impressive collection of seashells, driftwood, crayfish pots and other vintage nautical objects. Even after multiple visits to Hooked, visitors find plenty of interesting pieces still left to discover.
