Visited Van Hunks with a group of friends, 2 other Brits and 2 locals. The venue was warm and welcoming. The staff were wonderful and the drinks were very reasonably priced. Would happily visit again.

I've been to Van Hunks many times and I must say that the food is really good. I've tried a bit of everything...the steak with mashed potato and roasted veggies is one of the best in Cape Town (for that price), the chicken schnitzel is...More
