Fodor's Review

The menu at Helvetia changes daily but there are always at least a dozen home-cooked dishes on offer at this very affordable restaurant. They range from meat dishes like curried chicken or meatballs in tomato sauce to plentiful vegetarian options (cooked without meat stock), such as stewed vegetables, sautéed eggplant, chickpeas in sauce, potato salad, and bulgur pilaf. The atmosphere is laid-back, though the small space can get bustling, and the easiest way to order is to simply point at what you want from the day's specials, which are displayed in front of the open kitchen; ask for a mixed plate if you'd like to try several small portions. No alcohol is served.
