Restaurant is located on river so great view while dining. Food is good with lots of variety. If you do not like German food plenty of options here. Portions are generous and service is awesome.

I had the turkey sandwich and it was awesome! We were excited to get a table overlooking the river, but the gnats were pretty annoying.

This is a great place for date night! The owner and staff are always welcoming and the view of the river is awesome! The rubon sandwich is a must have, I crave it often!

Sitting on the deck overlooking the Chattahoochee River is the best thing about this restaurant. Note that dinner plates cannot be ordered before 4 pm, we got there about 330, waitress took our order, told us about the 4pm rule. no problem - ordered some beers to wait it out. 4:20 food delivered to table, 1 side piping hot, the...

Went for late lunch, early dinner. I ordered the Alpine Chicken. My mixed vegetables were cold, the mashed potatoes were hot, my chicken which had ham and slice cheese on it......was just warmed. For 15.00 not worth it. Our waitress was very friendly.

Nice location if you can get on the water view. Busy Main street. Having been here a few times, the service has always been efficient. The rueben is advertised as the best and it is indeed very good. They seem to skimp a bit on anything you order with it but its not a bad place for lunch.

My fiancé and I recently made a trip to Helen and ate supper at Cafe international. We both ordered the I'm brot. It was awful. The sauerkraut on it taste like it came out of a jar and was horrible. It was served on a fancy hotdog bun and not a traditional brotchen. It was $27 dollars for the 2... More

We had heard of Helen, GA from a friend's Facebook post. We made Helen, GA a destination trip. One tip I would recommend is to make hotel reservations early. Then you can enjoy the evening events. Helen's main architectural theme is Bavarian, with a lone Dutch Windmill in the city park. We had to wait approximately 30 minutes to be... More

We went to Helen on a Monday during Octoberfest. Favorite restaurant "Mully's" was closed so we decided to try Cafe International because of its setting. Had a great waitress. My wife ordered the soup of the day, Brie and Mushroom. a congealed inedible mess. I ordered bratwurst on a bun. The "bratwurst" looked like a sausage, but tasted like a... More

This cafe was a short walk from our hotel, with outdoor seating. It sits alongside the Chattahoochee River, so we could hear the water while we were eating. I wasn't very hungry and I was allowed to order from the children's menu--still too much spaghetti to finish. The German potato salad is delicious and the grilled ham and cheese sandwich... More
