Restaurant Helena

I went yesterday and we had the following:

Would order again:
Cod croquettes, Sardine filets, Grilled seafood plate for 2 (scallops, shrimps, octopus, calmars), Pasteis de nata, Churros.

Probably wouldn't:
Tomato salad , Fish soup, Doughnuts (Bolas de Berlim), Crab cake (I'm not a big fan of those in general).

Wine: can't remember, says Planalto 2011 on the bill but I don't find it on the wine list.

There was also complimentary bread, mixed olives and peppers, olive oil, and some sort of chorizo flavored spread.

Overall we had a very good time, the food was good, and we left more than full. For 3 people bill came to 230$ before tip the wine was 55$.

Address: 438, McGill (corner St-Maurice)

  1. We went for the first time last week, and really liked it.

    We also had the cod croquettes, which were just ok. However, one of our main dishes, the seafood casserole was really good and huge. We couldn't even finish it, and for $30, that's a lot of bang for your buck.

    We would definitely go back and recommend it. Cafe Ferreira finally has some serious competition in town.

      Are you your talking about the Feijoada de mariscos? I came this close to ordering it but I took the fish soup starter instead.

        Yes, the Feijoada de mariscos. It was excellent. The shrimps in it were also gigantic! Really did not expect such generosity.
