Great menu, very friendly service and an unbeatable harbour location. Excellent choice if you are in SimonsTown.

We stumbled upon this restaurant purely by chance, and what a delightful find it was! A lovely setting on the quayside. Service was efficient and friendly, and all the food was excellent. Bertha's combo is particularly good value. To end off a great meal there's a great selection of deserts.

After waiting about 20minutes somebody decided to come take our order. From there it was smooth sailing, the food was delicious. The service was not so great, after we have eaten, we had to wait another 10 minutes before the waiter came so we can ask for the bill

This restaurant is HUGE (in size), but the service and food is really average. Although we enjoyed the deep fried end baby calamari starters, I must say I expected more from reading reviews of the place. The view is however really good, overlooking the Navel Base. Nice spot for afternoon cocktails!

Bertha's is a special stop, if for no other reason that the food is good the beer is cold and a step out the door lands you in the yacht harbor! We enjoyed a very good fried Hake (fish & chips) lunch and a beer here while exploring Simon's Town. There is probably restaurants with more elegant cuisine but it... More

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