We go to Berthas often but this is the very first time that the WHOLE place was booked out to various tour groups...to the extent that they could not accommodate 1 table for 2 people. But hey, we are only locals :( But also thanks to this rather rude turn away, we found a restaurant with better food around the... More

Bertha's is a good seafood restaurant with the normal menu, nothing extra-ordinary. Nice setting in the harbour of Simon's Town. Service was friendly and quick.

Bertha's is set right on the marina, off the boardwalk. One can chose inside or outside dining. There is an area for children to play, which is great for families with kids. We had Cape Malay chicken and also had ribs. Both were very good. They feature wines from South Africa. Service was friendly and they paced our meal well.

Beautiful view as you sit right next to the water, next to the harbour. Had a tuna salad that was good, my friends steak and chips was average. Would recommend it for a lazy afternoon snack or to eat something lite.

Really nice place to sit on the harbour with good views. Had 2 salads with sea food and some sides. Presented very nicely but didn't taste that good. Recommend this place for a lazy afternoon and some drinks by the harbour but go elsewhere for food.

Looking into the Trip Advisor reviews on this restaurant we didn't know what to expect, but this was one of the opened places on Sunday in Simon's Town (from those we've looked into) and that at the end convinced us! :o) We have to say we were surprised by the quality of the food - we took 1 kilo of...

Came here for a day date with my girlfriend, we had some cocktails and they were divine. The food was good, the fish was a little cold but I still ate it. Will be back for the view.

We went there twice for sea food and oysters. Both times it was just great. It was no gourmet fare, but every item was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere is relaxing and friendly service.
