We had heard a few mixed reports about the restaurant but there were four of us and our experience was a very good one. Excellent service and the food was very good. An excellent location.

Stopped at Simon's Town for lunch on our way to Cape Point, we were not sure where to eat, but Bertha's got the nod for the view over looking the harbor and beyond. It turned out to be the right choice, as the food was also very good. Staff were friendly and the service quick given that we moving on.... More

Bertha's is an ideal place to stop in Simons Town as it has fantastic views and a lovely ambiance. The food, however, is not one to cause culinary excitement but their portions were generous and the staff were fun and friendly.

Had some really nice seafood here as well as lovely white wine. The location right next to the sea just could not be any better.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at this restaurant, fresh seafood and plenty of it. Outdoor seating and a very nice view of the harbour. Would love to go again if we ever get the chance.

We popped in here for a late lunch and it was what we expected. The service was poor and the food was average. We were not expecting exceptional food and service so we were not that disappointed. If you are not in a rush and just want to enjoy the scenery and sit outside - this place will do.

For lunch, my wife and I first shared 12 oysters, that were fresh and well presented with a salsha (R135). Not wanting the platters, we then made up our own with the line fish that was Dolrado, which was excellent. Adding the mussles that were fresh, which was served with two delightful slices of french loaf toasted with melted butter... More

We spent Well over an hour waiting for our waiter just to bring us menus and take our order, then another hour for our food. Ruined the whole evening. Good food, but the shockingly bad service (without any apologies) left a bad taste in the mouth. Never again. We will be sure to warn family and friends.

Been in a popular spot on the Wharf, we were excited to find a parking and an inside table for a seafood lunch, before continuing our day trip around cape point. The view over the yachts was beautiful but the inside of the dining hall appeared dated and lack ambience. The service was really bad, as the poor waiter was... More
