    Il y a longtemps que nous n’y avions pas pris un repas et ce fût encore meilleur que par le passé. Merci à David et toute son équipe.

    Overall the food and the service was excellent. The only negative was that we paid for truffles on the main and it was extremely mild. Other than that, I would go back.

    Un classique avec un beau menu, des incontournables mets délicieux. Un service attentif et gentil. Petit bonus lorsque la chef passe à la table demander comment était le repas.

    This is our third visit to Helena. As always, the food was spectacular, and the service was top-notch. Two of the four of us are coeliac and they always handle our allergy with seriousness. We will definitely be back.

    une de nous a pris la morue noire. Malheureusement, la morue était trop cuite, avait des arêtes et peu de goût. Cette cliente fait de meilleure plat de morue à la maison. Les autres convives étaient plutôt satisfaits.
