We visited Van Hunks twice while we were in Cape Town, and it's a great spot for a relaxed lunch and/or drinks. Huge portions for a very good price! Even just their fries are amazing!

I visited here with my family on New Year's Eve. The staff were very busy but extremely friendly and professional at the same time. The establishment serves a whole variety of food and drink and it was a lovely place to spend two hours.

Craft beer and affordable pub-like meals in a lekker local pozzie. A few TVs to watch the game and if the menu is not to your liking, Van Hunks is walking distance from several surrounding 'upper class' restaurants. The daily happy hour(s) from 17pm-19pm offers...More
