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

I have to say that I am not the biggest fish eater, but the fish that was brought to my wife almost changed my mind from my chicken and rise I had order. Good place and good service.

I was a regular here back in 2002 and have to say that it was the best fish restaurant I had ever eaten in. Sadly Captain Hook has since passed away and the food is not as good as back then. The fish is still quite good but not at the same level as previously. It is still worth eating... More

Came here in September 2013 for a business meeting. We had a meal in the bar. It was quick, the food was good and the service was very good. The prices were a little high. The place was not that busy, which I thought was a little strange as it was humming in here the last time I came in.

My husband and me have been here some days ago. My husband ordered fried calamari, the taste was not bad,but the result has been a very bad infection,with diarrhea,vomit and fever.Maybe if has been unlucky but I will never suggest someone to go in this restaurant.

Service is very good, food is great. It's clean and set in a nice quiet setting, the bar is well stocked with lots of choice. It's not the cheapest place in Takoradi, but you get what you pay for obviously. I have never ended up with a bad stomach after eating here, unlike other places in the town. Worth a... More

This place is just the best place you will find in the whole neighborhood. no doubt. seafood is good and staff is kind. there is also a bar/pub where you can chill or watch a football match. small lobsters cooked in sea water are a MUST
