Bertha's Restuarant is situated in a great position next to the harbour water's edge but unfortunatly this was spoiled by the rip off price of R59.00 for a 500ml Mitchells local beer, obviuosly cashing in on tourists but a rip off for us South Africans!!

Being at Berth's is a bit like being in the Waterfront in Cape Town, but at a more relaxed and calming pace. We stopped for drinks in the afternoon and had a wonderful bottle of wine with some deep fried calamari, which were very tasty....More

Always a nice spot for lunch whilst in Simons Town, right next to the waters edge. Shown to a table very promptly. Can recommend the fish and chips. Service very good.

Good location overlooking the bay. Food was ok but not great. Service was not so good. Coffee took so long to come at the end that we just left.

A nice restaurant with great seafood. Make sure you sit outside on a sunny day to enjoy the view of the harbour. I was served the best squid I have ever eaten.

We chose this restaurant as a stop doing the peninsula by car. Stopped for dinner. Lovely location on the water. We all ordered fish of some kind (of course) and not one disappointed. Service was good as was the price.

We had a lovely lunch of hake & calamari combo's with pasta for our son who was thrilled to "get exactly what he wanted". The setting is beautiful & Taryan's service was excellent. Lovely place to play for the kids also. Highly recommend lunch spot...More

We arrived in Simon’s Town on a day trip from Cape Town and chose this restaurant because of the location right by the harbour. The meet and greet were good and the waiting staff excellent. However I wouldn’t say the food was particularly great bearing...More
