We really liked the food, which was Mediterranean with some fusion and creative Middle Eastern combinations, such as Burrata with pumpkin seeds or ice cream with tehina, silan (dates honey) and shaved halva. Fish was fresh and made to our liking. The view from the restaurant can't be beat, on a clear day or at night.

I went there by chance with a friend and it was so good that I visited several times since, with family. The seafood is fresh and prepared in innovative ways. The view of the sea and old city of Cesarea are absolutely stunning. If you go for a specific dish make sure to call in advance since the fresh ones... More

We came kind of by chance, 2 Israeli and 3 guests who appreciate good food. We were so happy from the food and the service we came again the following day. Chef is charming and creative, friendly staff and superb food.

We had a business lunch at Helena. Some of the dishes were good, some were less so, the service was "uninspired". All in all it is a disappointment considering the beautiful setting and views and the high price and expectations. Some glitches are unacceptable in a place like this - not changing the cutlery between courses and more.

The food hear is very good. I was with a tour group of 20 people and the team served an excellent lunch with a variety of starters and main courses. The salmon on risotto was excellent and the freshly baked bread is very good here too. Wine is about 50 shekles a glass. If lots of you are drinking its... More

First of all, Helena is located by the ruins of King Herods castle, which in itself would justify a trip to the area. After exploring the grounds, Helena is the place to be. The food, service, view and ambiance are all top notch. Perhaps it is a bit pricey, but I've had many more expensive meals that were nowhere near... More
