We have been to Bertha’s in Simons Town before for a seafood Christmas lunch which was outstanding a few years ago. This time round it was to reminisce on that awesome day – again the food was great and I’m not sure if we missed the crowds by only getting there at 2pm – so we had the whole restaurant... More

I have visited Bertha's Restaurant over several years and I always have a good eating experience there. We ate fish - catch of the day and prawns - and the food was fresh and tasty. We sat outside although it was slightly chilly to fully appreciate the view of the bay - lovely! Couldn't have been nicer! Good food, good... More

Great spot for a lazy lunch with a glass of the Cape's finest. Food is good, service is good and the view of the bay is just superb. Worth a visit.

We decided on a trip to Simon's Town. On a lovely day, we walked along the main street which is lined with old colonial buildings. Some of interest , a museum that we thought might be interesting was closed whether for good or not as there was a notice saying gone for lunch. We decided on lunch here and stopped... More

Place is tatty, service plain, food was not good and still left a very good tip and she did not even say thank you. Sorry but that does not cut it. Won't be going there again.

We were driving back from a morning at Cape Point and this is exactly what we wanted....good seafood and wine along a nice harbor setting. Friendly staff and value for money. The chowder, oysters, and prawns were all excellent. Kid friendly. Wine reasonably priced.

This restaurant has a lovely waterside location and today we were serenaded by a local wandering band. The ambience, music and great setting went well with our cold drinks. We were not there to eat, although sorely tempted the penguins nearby were beckoning us, or rather kids were pestering us to get a move on. Car parking is 4 rand... More

When we arrived it was absolutely packed and the friendly staff still made space for us to sit alongside the water. An amazing view right on the waters edge and the vibe was just as good. A couple of local buskers came and went in the time we were there which was really enjoyable and festive. Food was brilliant, although... More

We visited Bertha's last Sunday morning and, unfortunately - even by our standards, it was a bit early to make use of their impressive wine cellar. The food was excellent and this was complimented by friendly and efficient service. The menu was fairly extensive but, being in a picturesque harbour, we settled on a calamari steak and fish cakes which... More
