Wow, this place just breathes Greece with it's beautiful statues inside and the nice borders between the booths. We came in very late, at ten in the evening and they close at eleven, but this was no problem. The friendly waiter was fair about this...and also about the pricing, since there was a difference in lunch and dinner pricing although they serve the same. 🙂 This was a huge difference of 2 euro. 😜🤣 Of course this didn't keep us from dining here. That the waiter was so honest about this was actually a big plus. We love and respect honesty. The staff is more than nice, costumer minded and even interested in it's customers. The food... oh my gosh, it's delicious and traditional Greek. I asked for a sweet wine and got a divine Muscat. We even bought two bottles. Helena is a definite "can not miss" when you visit Nürnberg.More

Unfortunately overrated place. We were here with my wife to taste good Greek meals, but there was nothing special - except aniseed vodka. Dish was ok, staff very kind and helpful - really Greek temperament.

If you wotk here or visit Nürnberg - this Greek restaurant is absolutely worth going and feeling the warmth of Greece in winter or , like now- early in spring: - Fantastic reception, you get a glass of ouzo, - real and true kindness -...the dishes are delicious the choriatiki ( salad - prepared with love) lamb chops tender, veg, great. We were all pleased, and regardless what we ordered : Perfect in quality and quantity! The place is full of locals , students, families- and we could see that a lot of customers were greeted as they seem to be regulars! This is a good thing and it makes a diffrence! All the family- for decades- is so friendly and so are the waiters: Greek tradition at it's best! Be aware: If you want to be on the safe side, make a reservation! The place is not in the city center- but very very popular! We will come back and recommend this restaurant to all kind of travellers!More

Nice and service minded staff. The restaurant was busy but we managed to get a table anyway. The menu was a bit tricky as it only comes in German but with a little help from the staff we managed to order. We started off with...garlic bread (wasn't on the menu but they fixed it for us anyway) and then we ordered two different "teller" (plates) with different meats like souvlaki, gyros, bifteki (spicy minced meat) and steak. It came with a mixed salad, fries or rice and tzatziki. Big portions. Everything was fresh and tastes great. Like in Greece you also get an "ouzo" to drink and some cake for dessert (on the house). We paid about 12€ per dish and it was money well spent. We're happy we found this place.More

With so many greek places in Nuremberg, it's difficult to make a difference. Helena has a very good service combined with a good selection of very tasty dishes.
