Description: Helena's Restaurant at Coopmanhuijs aims to serve heritage food with finesse, often with subtle twists in the detail, thereby turning the familiar into the spectacular. The menu is designed to reflect the bounty of the Boland, with specific emphasis on freshness and food provenance - the "from where" and "by whom" of locally sourced (often artisanal) ingredients.

A surprise dinner at one of my bucket list restaurant - surely didn't disappoint.
Delicious meal.
Revamping the classic meals with something extra - best chocolate dessert and cheesecake we have ever had!
Would love an alternative seafood dish. Lobster makes it unaffordable for most.

A Petit Restaurant in the Coopmanhuijs Hotel in Stellenbosch with a relatively small menu and divine food.
Tranquil atmosphere and good service. A lovely evening spent in a delightful restaurant.
I had a stunning starter with crisp calamari, green peas, green pea puree and flavoured gnocchi

Went to Helena's in Aug 16 for dinner. The moment you walk in the service is spectacular! Great team. I had the Oak Valley pork which was juicy and tasty. My partner had the fish of the day which they said was good but not amazing. Fantastic wine selection to go with the food. And the desserts were decedent and tasty.
