Celebration of food @ The Hook.

Local seafood when you’ve just been on a coastal walk, what could be better? The Hook in Petone offers the freshest on the market.

A short stroll from the esplanade, The Hook is a clean, open-plan dining space with low-lit Edison bulbs and copious greenery. A warm respite from the cooler air of the Petone coast.

If the name hasn’t given it away already, fish (and seafood) is the dish of the day, every day. Japanese style ceviche and Vietnamese Nelson mussels make for exotic sharing plates, with more substantial mains such as surf n turf offering a heartier meal.

The Hook is also a craft beer hub, with both Panhead and Emerson’s varieties on tap, including the latter’s London Porter to warm your cockles on a cooler day. The wine list is also strong and if that’s not strong enough, there’s plenty of cocktails to mull over.

When the food's this good, you’re sure to be hooked (sorry, we couldn't resist!) Book a table today.

The Hook was wonderful! The food was so delicious, two of us had steak and it melted in the mouth and the other person had a special, squid and pulled pork! He couldn’t believe how tasty it was and was glad he tried something out of the ordinary! Would definitely go back

Well we has heard great things about the hook and we’re not disappointed. We had great service. The mussels were a decent entree the seafood chowder was amazing. Was a great night out and we were not rushed out the door. Attentive staff. Would definitely recommend.

So-do. Food not very hot. A bit rustic (lumpy mash). Nothing to entice me back.

Problem with First Table voucher apparently didn't reserve on the Restaurants end. Almost had to pay full price. Luckly I had an email to show proff of booking. Besides that. Manager was lovely and explained the situation politely. Meal was good. Atmosphere was beautiful.

Wait staff was warm and courteous.
I had pork - quite tasty and big serving for me. My friend had lamb shank. Delicious too. Tiramisu was done well. The waffle with ice creams on top was too dry and hard so did not enjoy that. Entree mussels was a little disappointing. Some did not taste fresh. But the sauce over them was tangy and yummy.
Restaurant has been refurbished to a lovely standard. Nice ambience.
Would go back again to try other courses. Lots of choices.

We dined here last night. The service was great, the bar snack entrees we got were pretty average but the seafood chowder was really good!

The meals were delicious, and the four of us absolutely enjoyed everything:) The only hiccup was the lack of transparency of the spirit prices, I think there should be prices for spirits on the drinks menu.
Apart from that, excellent dinning and I highly recommend "The Hook" as a go to place for fabulous food,lovely ambience and excellent service:)

Friendly attentive staff even when it started to get busy. Food came out quickly. I had the Pork 3 Ways which came out beautifully presented, the pork belly was delicious and cooked to perfection, the tenderloin was also good but could have done with just a little more seasoning. My husband had the stonegrill steak which was a decent size steak and he had fun cooking his own steak, he also loved the Jus served with it which was quite tasty. Overall a really good dining experience.
