Bertha's lives on its laurels unfortunately...the food is average, the service pretty poor and all in all I would not go there twice...just go for the atmosphere and have a drink, if you really have to...

Went to the restaurant for lunch and left so disappointed !
We had bought fresh fish in Kalk Bay so I went for the spatchcock
chicken with Mozambican chili sauce and french fries - bad bad bad choice ! Chicken was pre-cooked, reheated and was so over-cooked the meat was inedible - shame on you !
Only redeeming features were good french fries and a great view of the harbour.
Will not return.

This was our first place to eat in Simons Town. Uber driver recommended it. I think that he's never eaten here. Food was average at best and overpriced. Probably won't be back. Wait staff was prompt and friendly but not sure if the promptness was only because we were two of six people eating at 10am. Great location with outdoor deck seating and might be okay for large group at dinner but cannot recommend it.

We had 40 min for breakfast. The kitchen promised they would meet our timeline, which they didn't. When the food arrived it was bad... the eggs were bad, the chocolate cake was bad, the coffee was mediocre. Service was grumpy. We had a bad experience.

Came at 5 pax around 2pm, restaurant was half full.
Tablecloth was extremely dirty, asked to change it, it was not possible, instead they tried to clean half of it but did not helped.
Service was very slow (10 min to take the order and another 15 min to get a beer from the draught).
Food was OK, but mussels was Excellent.
We had to ask for cuttleries, then for paper napkins (3 times before it arrives).
I guess we were really thirsty and hungry therefore the waiting time and the poor efficiency of our waiter did not help.
If you are relaxed and have time, go there for the mussels..
