It all began with a simple market stall in Dublin back in 2011, where we made a name for ourselves with our unique, “new-school”, take on fish and chips. We broke down the classic fish and chips dish into all of its basic ingredients, and built it back up again with big portions of extra love and care to ensure every single part of the dish was of the highest quality, and sourced from the absolute best suppliers. Everything is made on-site; from our sauces, all the way across to our own very special seaweed salt. To this day we only work with 100% sustainable small fisheries, day-boats, and fantastic local suppliers, ensuring sustainability and responsibility in everything we do

Second time here and I was very happy to recommend this restaurant for my friends to test a good fish and chips.
Not disappointed at all. Service fast and nice. Tasty and fresh food.
Bit farther from Camden touristic places.
Will come back for sure.

Excellent restaurant for a fish based meal . Our Tacos for starters were very tasty as was the Bream that we each had for our main course .
Very friendly young lady serving on and a good view of the kitchen.

When I arrived I was stood waiting at the bar for about two minutes before someone came from the back to serve me who'd been chatting with someone which wasn't a pleasing start. I was seated in a good table location however. As somebody who loves tea, I found it disappointing that Hook doesn't serve hot drinks, tea is a traditional hot drink served with fish n' chips after all. I did though enjoy the rhubarb & ginger lemonade very much. Dish wise, I had a reasonably-sized portion which had a very nice, very crispy Panko breadcrumb batter for the fish. With the chips I thought using seaweed for seasoning was a capital idea, but if you're going to cut chips they should be cut into proper rectangular-type shapes instead of being sliced as if to be put in a gratin! I also didn't like the malt vinegar in a spray bottle, I think many would agree it's better in the traditional drip bottle. Overall, I have had a mixed experience at Hook Camden.

QUALITY INGREDIENTS VERY WELL COOKED
Chips should be served separately to the fish as they become soggy
Need serving spoons for sharing sides
Change cutlery after first course

A superior Fish and Chip restaurant. Quite different from the traditional ‘greasy chippy’. No fried food food smells , the restaurant had pleasant seating and decor, similar to the many gourmet hamburger joints that seem to be everywhere these days.
The menu was far more innovative than expected with items such as fried Sea Bass on offer and excellent freshly fried chips, this place is a winner.

Il locale si trova nel quartiere di Candem Town. Ho cenato qui e devo dire di essermi trovata benissimo, la cameriera era italiana quindi abbiamo avuto modo di farci spiegare i piatti in modo più dettagliato, tutto veramente buono , dall'orata al merluzzo in pastella. Veramente un buon fish and chips!!

Staff were indifferent. Food was poor. Good quality fish was spoiled by a nearly burnt batter.
Calimari started ruined by too much soy sauce. V small calimari too.
Ambience is cold. Seats are hard.
Wine was low quality.
Very disappointing.

We enjoyed our fish and chips at Hook! The fish was perfectly crispy on the outside and very fresh on the inside. We tried a few of their homemade sauces and thought they were delicious! The homemade fruit drinks, like Lime Strawberry and the Mint Lemonade, we’re also very good. Our server, who’s name I think is Martina, was very nice! She was helpful and funny, despite being the only server! The prices were a bit steep but we would go back!

Great service. I made a mistake in how I booked my reservation for my Groupon and they made an exception and allowed me to use it. The server was very friendly. The food was good. The small portion of fish and chips is perfect for someone with a small appetite. The flavored lemonades are very refreshing! Oh, I don’t want to forget the decor. Very cool. And the bathrooms are large and clean.

Food was delicious and creative. Options provided a nice change to traditional fish and chips. My group visited for dinner, and we got various starters, the traditional fish and chips and the cajun version. All of which were yummy. The only issue we had was that the restaurant ran out of the other types of seafood dishes, such as the tempura, which is what we had hoped to try.

We just booked for a quick bite to eat before a gig at the Green Note opposite, but that was a disservice to Hook. The food was delicious with extremely well prepared fish. The décor is simple but attractive and the ambience is very good. We hope to return soon to enjoy a more leisurely meal (and sample more from the tempting menu).
