We spent a week at Fairmont Hot Springs and tried a new restaurant every day and Helna's was the best overall.The food was good, the service by Samantha superb and we enjoyed the decor delightful.

My wife and i opted to try this restaurant as a result of the good reviews we read on trip advisor. We started with a warm brie baked in phyllo with garlic and then both ordered the lamb shank and it was incredible. The Brie left nothing to be desired, who doesn't love garlic, c'mon.
The restaurant looks like a construction site outside but it smells like home cooking as soon as you enter!
The inside itself is quaint but shares a similar charm to many restaurant in small towns such as Radium. The service was friendly and our meals were attained in a timely manner. This stop is a must along the way.

During a weekend jaunt to Radium, we decided to eat here based on the good reviews.

They are going through a reno/expansion and the outside is not much to look at, but one of the reviews said to ignore the outside and go in and we did.

We did not have a reservation and arrived at the tail end of the dinner hour and had a table in front of the fireplace, which was luckily dying down, but still pretty warm. The heat from the fireplace was our only complaint.

I had a regular schnitzel and my wife had the lamb shank and both were excellent. We shared a strudel for desert and it was also excellent, nice flaky crust.

Our server Suzie, was very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

The place is small and was full when we arrived and looked to be full of locals, always a good sign.

We get to Radium once a year and we will definitely be back

Caution, if you plan to go during the busy tourist season, ie summer, best to make reservations

Another great meal at Helnas Stube, they never let me down!
Warm, friendly service with outstanding fresh and delicious food every time.
Open during renovations, does not effect your dining experience at all so don't let it scare you off! Cannot wait to see it when it is done, thanks for another amazing meal Helmut, Natascha and Suzie!
