Helena’s Restaurant aims to serve heritage food with finesse, often with a subtle twist in the detail – turning the familiar into the spectacular. The menu is designed to reflect the bounty of the Cape, with specific emphasis on freshness and food provenance. At Helena’s, good unpretentious food and special wine add to the pleasures of life.
Helena’s Restaurant is located in two adjoining dining areas within Coopmanhuijs. The first area, beneath an antique yellow-wood ceiling, is appointed with richly embossed French wallpaper. Lighted trees – intricately made of wire – adorn an entire wall. In the second dining area, hand-hewn poplar dining chairs are set beneath the glass roof of a charming conservatoire, which opens onto the enclosed courtyard and swimming-pool.
Although we afford preference to Hotel guests, we welcome reservations and walk-ins from outside patrons – subject to availability. Thank you for considering Helena’s. We are open seven days a week. Please note you are welcome to bring your own wine, we charge a corkage fee of R60 per bottle.
