We were surprised to find only two tables occupied during a Sunday lunch. The waiter was extremely friendly and provided excellent service. The music was way too loud and the menu contained quite a few typo's. Unfortunately the food was bland and boring although the portions were huge and good value for money.

Helga's is a good idea for customers that like to eat a lot where quality is less important than quantity. Stuffy and overcrowded with a lot of things and the bottles that basically forms the ceiling of the restaurant. How on earth do they managed to clean the dust from these bottles or is this really part stuffy decor. You... More

My wife & I decided to pop in while passing by during retail therapy. Actually, I spontaneously decided almost too late to pull in to Helgas for salami. We decided to stay for brekkie, saving us a stop elsewhere. Sheri our waitron was all spirit and enthusiasm and I am glad we did stop. Her service was fantastic! Johan the... More

On arrival at 1215 for lunch, only 2 cars in car park. Ordered steak and a pizza. After 45 minutes still no food. Waitress kept apologizing. Appears pizza lady did not put enough wood on! We were actually watching her doing nothing. I went to leave after 45 minutes, offered to pay for drinks. Manager/owner said that they are a... More

Value for money and man-size portion makes this one of the best venue for a family meal. On the way out grab some of the items on sale or you'll regret later on not doing so.

This place is hidden in a food store and I am not even sure if we should call it a restaurant. Fast food corner in a dark shop may be the better name. The food is poor, the service as well and I cannot recommend this place except in cases of emergency shortly before you starve.

My hubby took me to this place, used to be a Dros, still had the decor. We sat down and ordered ribs for me and a seafood dish for him. Was really really good. The staff was very friendly, the atmosphere was lekke, casual, fun. This place is like a bunch of restaurants in one. You have seafood, steak &... More

If you want some good food in a relaxing atmosphere, then this is the place to be. Friendly waiters and good value for money makes this well worth a visit. You will not get a better breakfast anywhere!
