A small bar were you can meet people who came here several years ago and who decided to stay, so the stories are great and the drinks are good.

Tried this place due to location. Staff was not friendly or responsive. They unfortunately had western attitudes. One tiny brown girl with short hair seemed to have the worst attitude and ruined the rest. Had one beer and left after being ignored when I needed a second.

Our first encounter with Helmut's Place was after I researched where to see the Superbowl, as they hosted it last year. When we got there, we asked the waitress and she said she had no idea what we were talking about and that they have never had a Superbowl party. Second night we came back and met the owner Helmut...

Okay food. Cheap. Okay ambiance, they are located at the main road, not really my type when I'm on a vacation. Good wi-fi connection for those who are curious. :)

The service was a tad slow when we were there...perhaps because we were a family and not the usual customers. The kids really wanted burgers so we the best place to go was Helmuts! Great burger!!

Invariably my friends and I always needed up at Helmut's on our nights out! On first visit it can appear a little gritty, even shady. It's pretty harmless though and the girls that work there are just having fun. There are a regular crowd of good-natured locals and workers there most nights so if you visit more than once as...
