We booked a table at Captain Hooks for a special occasion, so imagine our disappointment when we were told there was no lobster available. Half the items on the menu are lobster!! But it was too late and inconvenient to go elsewhere so we made the best of it. A spicy calamari starter was very very small and overcooked. the other starter should have been lobster with smoked salmon and dill sauce, it was requested with large prawns to substitute the elusive lobster but instead it came with just 3 small dull king prawns that had the texture of damp cotton wool and very poor flavour, They made me think of the type you buy frozen and precooked. The smoked salmon was again a tiny amount and there was a very big salad to fill up the plate.
Main courses weren't much better. Red snapper was overcooked and could have been fresher. Frito mixta was covered in a heavy batter, although it was nice and crispy on the outside, inside there was a thick layer of undercooked batter. The prawns were just ok but the large crude pieces of squid were rubbery. Chips were the frozen variety and not impressive. How hard is it to make real chips???
There were not many dining, maybe 5 tables but service as not great. It was hard to find someone to get us some salt and pepper. And then we sat looking at our long finished starter plates as they were only taken away as the main course arrived in a flurry of activity.
So a couple of beers and 2 courses of mediocre food came to a whopping Ghc225. They are trading on the reputation of Captain Hooks, Takoradi but it bears no resemblance whatsoever to the original. Shame.
I will not be going back there again. There is better fresher fish to be found elsewhere for a fraction of the cost.
