“Great Seafood, Great View and Great Location”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

This time we were celebrating a family event at Helena. The restaurant didn't dissappoint us, as it didn't in my previous visit there, although this time the expectations were higher.
Sometimes restaurants located in the center of an attraction such as the old Phoenician Harbor offer nice views but mid quality food. Helena is a real exception. You get them all: Great seafood, Great view and Great Location.
But you have to pay for it, quite expensive restaurant.

“Great sea food option in a great location”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

In the old port with a great view.
The menu is a bit expensive but offers a very unique variety of dishes, with a very interesting combination of tastes.
The fish and the sea food are very fresh.
You can combine the dinner with a trip to the old city of Caesarea.

“Beautiful setting - very good food”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Helena Restaurant is located in the middle of the Cesarea port archeological site. It is a beautiful setting wtih view of the sea and the port harbor.

The service was quite good. The waitress was very attentive. We went there with 2 American guests, and the waitress spoke english very fluently (not uncommon in Israel).

The good was very good as well.

Overall we enjoyed the evening in this very nice place.
