Bertha's is definitely good value for your money and the setting is perfect. The kids play area is decent and the service is good. We will be going back.

I ate here with a tour group and both the setting and the food was excellent. I had the seafood platter and it was awesome. Lots of delicious seafood and side dish and I loved looking out at the harbor. I couldn't believe I got all that food for such an inexpensive price. I would go back if I am... More

At least the price was not bad. I had a burger, and it was not bad, but our server was apparently unaware that anyone ever specified a level of doneness for meat. My wife had fish cakes, which were good.

The location is great, in the small Simon's town harbor, right on the water. So, on a nice day, there is a long terasse with many tables, which makes the location very pleasant. Unfortunately the lunch food is really average at best. We were a group of 6, ordered 6 different dishes, and nobody was happy with their dish. It... More

There are very few venues along the coastline with such magnificent views. The restaurant is an absolute failure in food preparation and service, but the venue is sweet. Have a drink from a bottle! Forget anything they have to make or prepare. The food, plating and service is so slow and lazy, this place would of died ages ago if... More

We did not even get to experience the food as we were seated and after 15 minutes they still had not cleared the table from the previous people. This was after 2 waitrons had walked past and assured us they would be back to clear the table and bring the menu's. They were not fully booked, only the outside portion... More

I never expected gourmet food, but the Bertha special I ordered with succulent calamari, golden battered hake, juicy prawns and fresh orange mussels, plus a side salad more than satisfied - nd ll for R99. Our waitress Yvonne was friendly and accommodating. Toilets were clean. Be prepared to be entertained by local musicians who expect a tips- but hey if... More

Berthas is popular for its setting more than its food I would say.Its a pretty setting no doubt.I had a simple fish and chips and it was just that.No real complaints.Just an average meal.

We had supper at Bertha's restaurant in July when we stayed at The Whale View Manor. It was such a disappointment! The service was poor and the food was "yukky"

Bertha's has become my favourite lunch venue on the Cape Peninsula route. A friendly greeting, never too crowded, Lovely view over the Harbour and Bay and good seafood. What more could one wish for.
