    I ordered the beef kebab and ask for it to be well done , when I arrived it was medium rare. I sent it back and when it came back it was still the same , by that time my husband had finished his meal. The waitress didn’t tell us she had not told the kitchen , only to find out when we were leaving that she had not asked the kitchen to do the steak well done. We chose Helena’s from the reviews we had read , but were disappointed. My husband had the lamb shank we he said was ok , but by no means would we return to this restaurant or recommend it to our friends.

    A total 5 star experience! An absolute gem: from the first greeting at the front desk by Onais, to the last goodbye and everything in between. Although it was our first experience of Helena's, we felt as if we were visiting life long friends. The food was amazing and very well presented...A feast for the eye and palate. The attentiveness of the staff was quite unique. We will most certainly be back.
