Helena Restaurant in Caesarea

Delicious Israel

So you toured Caesarea National Park. You had a great time so far but all of a sudden the kids became hungry. And you let’s be honest wouldn’t mind a break from touring. So as you know I am a private tour guide in Israel and one of my favorite places is Helena Restaurant in Caesarea’s ancient harbor. Usually, I stop there after I covered some of the things you can see in Caesarea National Park. I like to start with the Herodian Palace and the remains from the Roman Period like the Circus Maximus and the Herod’s Theatre. But then I take my guests we connect back to the car and enter Caesarea from the crusader gate. There you can find the ancient harbor and there you can find all the good places to eat. 

So what is so special about Helena restaurant in Caesarea you ask? 

First its location! Helena restaurant in Caesarea is ideally situated at the ancient port and you’re sounded with ancient ruins as a setting for the perfect meal. The interior has a pristine and classic decoration that invites you in and lose the track of time. But it’s not just the amazing vistas it’s also the excellent menu they offer at Helena’s Effortlessly picturesque, the port is also the source of the locally harvested fish and seafood caught daily. Moreover, it is used as a premier ingredient in Chef Sion’s kitchen. In addition to locally grown meats; seasonal fruits and vegetables, and local wild herbs and plants; indigenous to the Levant.

Since chef Sion opened the Helena Restaurant in Caesarea in 2004; he has perfected is the menu; showing his ability to bring a contemporary version of local cuisine. And since Helena is not a Kosher restaurant it’s open on weekends as well. And offers fabulous seafood as well! Next to the delicious food, they offer there is an excellent wine menu as well.
