One of the oldest places to play pool in Alona, off the beach. Always full, great place to meet the local expats, especially the German ones. One cannot go to Alona without having a beer at Helmut's.

Nice bar with a good vibe and cold beers and cocktails being served up! We have a couple of drinks and just watched what was going on. We didn't use the toilets. No idea if there was wifi.

We came here several nights for a cocktail or two. Cheap and friendly, a good spot at night to go with a friend or two. There is food too but didn't try that.

How can you get a bar so wrong. So many staff, so little service. Do not order any food here, it seems to be cooked next door (all deep fried rubbish - scallops couldn't be found beneath the cheese?!). Go elsewhere.
