Berthas is on the harbour a d probably the best situated restaurant in Simons Town just a pity the service is non existent. 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

I reserved a specific table as they encourage me to do, when we arrived it had gone an no sign of an apology. Got a drink straight away but after half an hour we still hadn't had our order taken, I chased but still no apology. I left without eating. Found another restaurant straight away and it was great. I... More

I was delighted to locate this establishment during a recent unplanned stop in Simonstad. Good food served with a smile, despite it being very busy. The menu is extensive - I opted for the calamari starter and lemon sole for a main. Everything was done very well. The view is spectacular and the clear blue sky and sunshine was an... More

The vegetarian options at Berthas´s Restaurant are quite poor - some overcooked and warmed up pasta. The service however was not bad.

The food was good. Service a little slow although the restaurant wasn't full. You can eat outside with a wonderful view of the harbour, but it can be chilly out there in the evening.

I visited Bertha's restaurant whilst staying in Simon's town. I saw a few poor reviews on Trip Advisor, but my experience was pleasant. The waiter was friendly and attentive, the food cannot be faulted and the view over the harbor is great. The restaurant had plenty of seating outside to soak in the sea. Also, a children's play area is... More
