our story


ooked is a waterfront cafe, beer garden and restaurant located in Marahau; the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park.  Hooked was opened 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 felt to discover.

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.
