The Beer is good and cold. The atmosphere was also good. I went there to meet a few business contacts to do a presentation. Their conference room did not have an overhead projector. The food was not wow. I ordered a lobster tail for entree, which came empty. The main was good though. They can do with some improvements.

This restaurant has now moved to the Airport Residential area. It just wasn't good. The grilled snapper was dry, and the surf & turf was a tiny steak completely drowned in sauce with a few prawn tails. Friendly service, but glacially slow.

I accompanied two colleagues to Captain Hook's for a dinner last week. The beer was cold which was good, but the meal was so-so. I had the calamari appetizer which arrived in a tempura coating and was quite chewy. Rather bland, frankly. We all ordered prawn dinners but the server came back 10 minutes later to tell us that prawns... More

This was underwhelming. The food took a very long time although the restaurant seemed almost empty. It was 105 cedis (about £18) for a vegetable stew containing a fish fillet that was advertised 'fresh' but appeared to have been frozen in batter. I was open to trying dessert but most of the items on the menu were not available. Won't... More

Went on a friends birthday. She booked a room for 20. The waiters were very attentive and the food was good. Felt there could have been more lobster. I felt we got more attention as this was a party than when going on a regular night. However, the food is good. Nothing outstanding.

Captain hook is an old place in Accra where you have to visit but to be frank It was below my expectations with all the online reviews on it. We ordered the Seafood shared plate and the meat one. Food was not very good and thier are much better places in Accra. Overall, It is good to visit once but... More

I know Captain Hook for the last 10 years. They had several branches and now the main branch is in Accra. This place is well managed and the personal is very friendly and efficient. They know the expat world and will cater to your needs. My special dishes revolve around the fish variety. The Takoradi branch used to have the... More

Ok, so expectations were quite low, it was a Monday night and we were the only people in the restaurant and I began to worry the seafood couldn't possibly be fresh. We ordered various lobster and prawn dishes and they were all incredible. Seafood so fresh I assume they have tanks out the back keeping it all live. I had... More
