Simon’s Town is rich in history, character, atmosphere and warmth. Its neighbours are whales, penguins and seals with world heritage status bird life, fishing and the beauty of Table Mountain and Cape Point. This is where you’ll find Bertha’s restaurant firmly implanted in the history of the village.
Bertha’s affords guests spectacular views over the harbour and False Bay. Guests are able to take the train to Simons Town and then a leisurely 10 minute walk along the Historical mile to the Restaurant. The walk covers and captures the history of Simon’s Town from 1741 when the Dutch East India Company decided that Simon’s Bay would be their place for winter anchorage. From 1813-1957, Simon’s Town was home to the Royal Navy of the South Atlantic, and from 1957 to today, is home to the South African Navy.
Fresh Seafood, Catch of the Day, Oysters, Prawns and our renowned Bertha’s Seafood Platters are some of our signature dishes. The Restaurant has a “nautical” feel to it, with Just Nuisance and photos from the Historical Society displayed on the walls.
