Good hamburgers

Hamburgers were freshly made. Service was friendly and restaurant was very neat. Nice view of the harbour.

Very long waiting time (1.5 hrs) and low food quality (seemed like Maggi sauce with my seafood pasta). Service around it was good.

I had one really bad experience here and complained at the time. We were offered a voucher and went back only to receive the same bad service and same bad food.

I always judge a restaurant by the bathroom, it was filthy, and the table cloth needed washing. The food was ok, but not great value for money. It's a tourist trap, if it wasn't for the location this place would be considered a dive. I had prawns, a few weren't even cooked properly, my mother had the seafood pasta, which... More

Food was excellent , we arrived at about 1130am after Shark Cage diving, we had an early start so we were all hungry The seafood plater we had was excellent, two of us shared this and we also ordered a couple of breakfast's which was no trouble for the staff. Seafood with a couple of beers was a treat

It is fun to just sit outside at Berthas and enjoy breakfast with a nice cup of coffee overlooking the Simonstown harbour. The price is very affordable and the food is nice, while the service during my visits has been friendly and with a smile.

We come to this place hopling for good food. Since the venue was right next to a fishing port we expected fresh fish and chips but we got I&J insted. We were deeply disapointed. The next disapointment is that we orderd wine and they gave us a compleatly difforent one.
