Have been coming to this restaurant for years. Was not happy with our last visit with the 20% automatic tip with our group of six. Normally an automatic tip of 15-18% is added for groups eight or larger.

Helena’s Stube, is my wife and I’s favourite restaurant in the Radium Valley, the food is some of the best we have had (especially if you like Austrian cuisine) We are both gluten free and this is the only place we know that we can...get GF Schnitzel which is very exciting (the Mushroom Schnitzel is especially tasty)More

Great food but very poor service. For a long established restaurant it didn’t seem like they knew what they were doing on the service side. We were not offered second drinks and our dirty dishes sat on the table throughout the meal. Weird signs on...the bathroom doors leftover from Covid didn’t seem to fit (1 person only, please knock?!) The wait for the food wasn’t bad, and the food itself was enjoyable, but being told by a waiter after what took forever to wrap up and pay the cheque, ‘You’d better make your card very visible or she’ll never come with the machine,’ we were kind of left with a bad taste in our mouths. Maybe they were short staffed and it was an off night? 🤔More

I was very pleased to find such a friendly, clean and skilled restaurant in a small town. In a town like Radium Hot Springs I would be pleased to find very good home cooking but this, from just one meal, seems to have a professional...kitchen that covers all bases well. The schnitzel was exactly what I hoped for, the accompaniment was done right. The price was "adult", but I was only sorry I didn't have time to sample more. Now I know the first place I'll check when I'm traveling that route.More

We make sure to come here every time we come to Radium which is probably two or three times a year. And we call well in advance to make a reservation for dinner. The food is excellent as is the service. Lovely owners and staff....We will be back next time we come through.More

The food is top notch. Always freshly prepared. Friendly staff, excellent service. The best gluten free schnitzel I have ever had. They care about food allergies. I would recommend them for a delicious meal.

Wow, Where do I even begin. Me and my girlfriend have been touring through Canada for the past 2 weeks, this was the worst restaurant experience we encountered in Canada, and not far from the worst restaurant experience we ever had either. First of all,...the place is so pompous and Covid 19 paranoid. You need to agree to a specific protocol when entering, and the whole feeling inside makes you feel like a peasant (explained below). My girlfriend asked the waiter for a recommendation on the steak's level of cooking, he didn't give any recommendation and instead asked us if we ever had steak before (ok, a little weird but whatever). We got the buffalo mozzarella starter and it was extremely small, one tomato with a few pieces of mozzarella. My girlfriends steak was well done although she asked for medium well, and a small part of it was also completely burnt. My ribs were all over the place, most were well done and some were medium well, although I also asked for medium well. The food was ok, nothing special. Before we left, the owner / hostess asked us if everything was good, and I told her about the burnt part of the steak. She called the chef over and left us alone with him, and when we explained what was wrong he implied that we are wrong about the cooking level and just said we should have said something about the burnt part of the steak. The owner / hostess than came over to charge us and continued saying that we should have said something about the burnt steak. The reason we didn't say anything was because it was just a part of the steak, and our experience was bad so we didn't want to stay there any longer than needed. In conclusion, we had way better food for way less money, the entire staff and feeling in the restaurant is pompous, and they are so paranoid about Covid you get the feeling that it's the start of the pandemic.More

Thank you for the delicious anniversary supper recently. When we decided to hop on the motorcycle and travel to Radium and home, your restaurant made our decision to spend the night in Radium instead of further along. We stayed around the corner and walked to...the restaurant thank goodness. We had a wonderful meal and a delicious dessert which we normally don't eat. Highly recommend this family restaurant.More

We have been coming to Helnas for close to 30 years. We come to Radium from Edmonton usually once a year and MUST eat here! From the time our daughter (also named Natasha) was small we have always been welcomed warmly by Natasha and have...never had a bad meal. Natasha goes out of her way to ensure that all diners feel special, and Helmut never fails to put out delicious food. Helmut also makes the most delicious potato chips for the kids menu, and once even made them for us when our daughter was not with us! Would also like to acknowledge our server Daniel who was just great when we were last here.More

We are a senior couple and eat out often and have travelled all over North America and Europe. Tonight we had an outstanding meal from the Caesar salad to the lamb shank and snitzel mains to the apple strudel deserts. One of the best -...and service was efficient and unassuming and the price was quite reasonable. Highly recommended.More

My husband and I came here in May on a mini break to Radium. My husbands mother is German so he missed authentic Bavarian cuisine. Of course nothing can compare to home cooked food from mum but he wanted to try it out. I had...the mushroom schnitzel and he has the Roulanden which is his favourite. It came with Spaztle and saurkraut and was all very good. You can tell it is 100% a family owned and run restaurant. You can see Helna in the back looking over all the cooking and I think it is her son or grandson who is the server. If you are looking for home cooked German food in a charming setting then you have come to the right place. The only thing my husband wished was on the menu was Cussla . Sorry – I know I have butchered the spelling of all of the dishes here. It is a little pricey but you're paying for the extra love and care put into the dishes.More
