Bendita Helena opened back in March 2016, and have in no time put their Comfort Food on the map of places to visit in Barcelona! The restaurant can be found on the tranquil street Galileu 261 in the district Les Corts.
The restaurant Bendita Helena has just been open for 4 months but the project started five years ago as a catering business for different events like weddings, markets but also selling to cafés and restaurants.
The owners of Bendita Helena, Ana and Valerie, both from Venezuela, wanted a restaurant were their clients could come to enjoy their cuisine in a relaxed environment. They serve flexitarian cuisine, a worldly mix of different health food options and to get the best result they work with local producers and seasonal ingredients.
Ana and Valerie wants to use the products in their purest state. Not trying to refine or manipulate the fruit, vegetables, legumes or grains, this way they can maintain the a cuisine rich in nutrition and flavour.
Tuesday to Friday Bendita Helena offer a healthy set menu for 10,50€ (2€ extra for dessert) and on the weekend they are open for brunch, which quickly fills up so I recommend you to book your tables in advance as the locale is petit.
On the a la carte menu we can find great variety of vegetarian dishes, but also vegan –salads from 8,5€, free-range eggs from 8,5€ and sandwiches from 5€. For the ones that are sensitive or intolerant to Gluten they also marked suitable options on the menu.
If your up for something more sweet and you visit in the morning they serve Açai bowl with fresh fruit and home made Granola 8€.
For beverage options we can find smoothies and fresh squeezed juices, ice tea, coconut water and organic coffee. The sweet treats are gluten free, egg free and dairy free.
Bendita Helena is located of the beaten track, it´s the perfect get away within the city, away from the stress in the heart of Barcelona, even though it´s just for an hour or two. Let the wholesome food nurture and recharge your batteries to keep going the rest of the day.
