Excellent meal at Berthas - 500g prawn special. Perfectly prepared, and very tasty. Great view of Simonstown yacht basin included!

Nice to sit outside if it is a sunny day. Big variety on the menu. We had the tuna, absolutely delicious and fully loaded burger. Service good except for our cappuccino's that arrived ice cold.

We just stopped for coffee here which was excellent. We loved the position right by the water with a view of the naval ships.
