We dropped for dinner, which was disappointing. Too expensive for the food available. For vegetarians a big challenge. We did not stay at the hotel.

Yes steak in India. Just had to have it and very well done to. This place is in the courtyard of a colonial building. Service good. Food delicious. Whilst they have some pedestal fans it would be a difficult place to be in hot weather

Throughout the years, Villa Helena managed to keep its charm and authenticity. The shady and lush garden offers a perfect setting of serenity and peace, right in the middle of heritage town. In its restaurant guests can now enjoyed a vegeterian or not world inspired cuisine and relax with a drink all day long or in the evening. Excellent cocktails complete a carefully selected wine list.
