I have been going to Captain Hook's for the past six years and have seen its steady decline from one of the best bars and restaurants in Ghana to where it is today. All the usual problems of service delivery in Ghana (slow, uninterested, rude, charmless) but with relatively high prices, tired decor and a lack of atmosphere.

This used to be one of the best seafood restaurants I had ever been to . I had not been for a couple of years and was really looking forward to a good experience . When I walked in I realized that the decor was the same and this only heightened my expectation . Unfortunately they did not have prawns... More

The staff is nice but the service is slow and a lot of items on the menu are not available. It is better to eat there in the evenings than during the day.

Lovely restaurant with good atmosphere and a very nice bar. Staff also quite pleasant and helpful. Only problem was that nearly half the menu items involve lobster but on four occasions in a fortnight there was no lobster available. One or two other menu items also unavailable at different times.

Nice place to have dinner at if at Cape Coast - order the FIsh platter 1 hour drive from Coconut Grove hotel in Cape Coast, well worth the drive The restaurant's number was hard to find but they stay open late (at least till midnight) and you should find place even w/out a reservation. we went without a reservation.

Back in the day - (before oil came to Ghana and changed everything) – Captain Hooks was the place to eat. It has been here for many years. People, (predominantly expatriates on mine sites), travelled many kms to Takoradi just to eat there. Its reputation was legendary, and to a lesser extent, still is. Changing times, competition, and attitudes now... More

Takoradi is a rough town and finding a brilliant gem like Captain Hook's made my day and saved many an evening. The food and service were excellent, clearly there is someone in the kitchen that knows how to cook. I will list the things I liked there: 1. Free WiFi 2. Staff went out of their way to change money... More
