Stopped here while on private tour in Simon's Town. The highlight was the people watching and the atmosphere. Nestled right on the wharf, we were able to view the Marina, yachts, and the people passing in transit. The weather was nice which made a difference....More

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!!
