Wonderful place to eat. Food was delicious and a bit pricey. Very pleasant dinning experience and the view of the Mediterranean was wonderful. From the time we ordered until food arrived was a bit long (20 - 25 min) but it was worth the wait. We would eat here again should our travels ever bring us this way again.

We know Helena for several years and it keeps a good standard. The view is nice, the service pleasant, the prices quite high even for Israel.

For 200 NIS per person meal I expected more..Even the fact that we mentioned to Chef Amos that we were here for my 65'th B'Day didn't upscale our experience in any way. Except for the whole grilled fish, which was good, all the rest of the dishes were average, at most. I don't recommend this one.

Have been before about 4 years ago, then the food was good and the service slow. This time they got both right and sone more. The decor is a little cold, but the view makes up for it.

We came with a group on a weekday afternoon around 2 pm. We had no reservation but were seated at a great waterfront table right away. Each dish was very distinctive and very tasty. See the photos posted by others for examples of the dishes. Two comments to point out in particular 1. A dish call burrata, which had cheese... More

We were looking for a romantic restaurant for couples in our vicinity, no more then a 30 minutes drive and "Helena at Caesarea Harbor" answered just to that. Since we did not visit there before, we did not know what to expect. We arrived at Helena on a wet and chilly Friday evening. Inside was warm and cozy and we... More
