The restaurant has a good view and nice ambiance, but we waited one and a half hours for our meals and the place was not even busy, when we got the food it was not what we ordered and it tasted mediocre at best. Felt like flushing a few hundred Rands down the toilet. I think something is terribly wrong... More

Been going to this restaurant for many years and always enjoyed the service, food and great location. Seems to have lost it touch, food is okay and drinks getting a little pricey. Service was average.

Stopped at Bertha's for lunch on a glorious July day while driving the peninsula. Ordered the kg of prawns special to share. Wife enjoyed so much that she ordered another kg. Chips are not the greatest and require a larger container of lemon butter for the kg portion as it is the same size as the half kg. Very pleasant... More

For a restaurant that is supposed to be a well known establishment, the food was average to below. I had the grilled baby calamari, my wife had the prawns and our friend had the spare ribs. As a starter I had muscles. Non of these dishes caused us to go 'wow'! On the contrary, it was a matter of 'where... More

My husband, son and i came here for lunch. It was pretty quiet at this time and so there wasnt a problem getting seating. The service was good and the food was tasty as well. I had the chicken curry, my son a burger and chips and my husband had the med salad and all of the food was was... More

The staff is friendly and the food is good. The chips I had were neither tasty nor crispy. But the scampis for starters were very good.

We only had a few drinks at this restaurant and we loved the atmosphere. The outside seating offers great views on the small harbor.

We visited Bertha’s twice during our weeklong stay in Simon’s Town. Both the food and service were fine, but both times we were rather put off by the large and rather impersonal dining hall type ambience. Given the location, the menu is decidedly seafood oriented, and each dish we enjoyed was well portioned, delicious, and the prixe fixe options are... More

Had dinner there twice, food was really good, prices were reasonable. Service wasn't too bad either. Nice view of the harbor. Don't expect fine French cuisine, but you can look forward to excellent family dining.
