We really enjoyed breakfast here a couple of mornings and dinner was good as well. The view is stunning and the place is easy to come to.

We are regular visitors to Cape Town so purposely went to Bertha's on our way around Cape Point. The setting is ideal & we were entertained by a group of singers at the waterfront whilst we ate. What made our visit special this time was our waitress, Maria, she was a ray of light & made us laugh; certainly she... More

With a group of 20 we had a lovely lunch at Bertha's after having been around in the Cape of Good Hope area. Excellent sea food and great location just at the key side. Nice people, good atmosphere, great food, what more can one ask for?

We came here on our last two visits and it was special and different, the seafood platter was to die for. I don't know what happened but, it's become more of a fast food place, they ran out of chips, service was not particularly quick and disappointing.

It took forever just to get a waiters attention and then was promply ignored. Second attempt at least elicited the ordering of drinks which arrived at a snails pace. Third attempt to order a secobd round and... More

Oh my word, the food at Bertha's is so delicious, the vibe is good as they have locals selling souvineers and playing traditional african sounds on a wooden xylephone right outside, lots of activity, cocktails are yummy and the starter spring rolls is a must, we have eaten here a few times the food is exceptional but quite pricey but...

Restaurant offers nice seating outdoor with view at the lake. Food is lovely, wide variety of excellent seafood. However service is very slow and it takes time to get your order.

Had dinner here during our 4 night stay in Simons Town. Restaurant is in a great location right on the harbour. Good menu at good prices with plenty of choice. I had the Lamb curry which was excellent and the Malva pudding which was also very good. I washed the food down with a couple of pints. Throughout our visit... More
