We visited on Friday evening for burgers which was really well presented and super tasty. The waiter however was not all that professional. I had to walk to the reception and point out that they had new guests. The place wasn't all that busy but in my opinion there were not enough people working. No condiments were set on the... More

We had lunch some days ago while visiting Sons Town at Berha's. Due to the location and due to the many people sitting there we decided going there. The waitress was very nice and fast and as said, the view on the harbour really nice. But the food- asnd this is what a restaurant should be all about- was really... More

We stopped in Simon's Town on the way back from our drive around the Cape Area and found Bertha's in mid-afternoon, in time for a nice lunch on the outside deck at the dock side. As we were a bit after the main Sunday lunch timing we felt lucky to get in. The food and service were very good. Several... More

Bertha's is the largest restaurant in the waterfront and is as close as you can get to the water itself. The atmosphere at night is romantic. All the seafood was good, except for the hake which had a thick tough batter crust around it. The wine prices was surprisingly expensive, in contrast to the food prices that ranged from a... More

Stopped for a quick lunch and ordered the Bertha' combo. Two of our meals came to the table incorrect. As a table of four and we all had poor reviews about our meal. The mussels where nice though. Service was a bit slow. Won't be back.

We visited this restaurant on our arrival at the Quayside Hotel in Simons Town. They were completely understaffed and unfriendly - we waited a long time for our food. Bad experience - will never go there again. What a pity - they have such a good location.
