In spite of only showing a reservation for 2 upon arrival, the restaurant experience was wonderful as usual. Thank you.
We had a wonderful meal at Helena and will return again soon! My husband and I met with friends for dinner and it was the right mix of elegant, casual, fun and romantic. We will definitely return. The wait staff was excellent and provided very good recommendations on how to navigate the menu....the tasting menus are excellent!
Excellent repas, tres bon service, rapide et courtois. Excellent rapport qualité prix.
It is not a bad restaurant but the owner or managers need to learn that people do not like being rushed. It is good to give people a few minutes between courses to relax, chat etc. Not everyone there is for business unless that is the focus of the restaurant in which case please advertise as such!
Great food, great service. My wife, who is always in restaurant with clients (business owners) says it's one of the best she's been at.
Excellente nourriture, excellent service. Ma femme qui est souvent au restaurent avec des clients (propriétaires d'entreprises) affirme que c'est un des meilleurs où elle a été.
We had an 8 pm reservation and were seated at 8:30. The food was ok but for the price we were expecting much more. The octopus appetizer was very good, fish dishes were quite bland. Pistachio with fruit dessert was very disappointing.
It was a great expérience and great good .knowledgeable staff.
En un mot Héléna est mon resto PRÉFÉRÉ. C'est mon endroit préféré pour souligner les anniversaires ou les soupers entre amis.
At first when we arrived we waited 15 minutes before anyone approached the table, I then proceeded to talk to the manager and everything s was fine afterwards...
The food was outstanding!
Visiting Montreal & Helena recommended by locals w unique Portuguese emphasis & seafood. We were not disappointed! Quality personal service, beautiful presentation, sumptuous tapas (we ordered the tapas tasting menu & fish), wonderful Portuguese wine & dessert "tapas" that you couldn't resist. Worth another trip to Montreal soon. And we met Helena on the way out! Memorable!
