We both enjoyed our dinner. Schnitzel for myself and Goulash for my wife. Each came with dumplings, red cabbage, potato salad and some hearty fresh bread ahead of our meal. Had not planned to stop, just drove by the sign while heading to Point Reyes National Seashore and decided to stop on the way back. Enjoyed the neal and atmosphere.... More

The menu at this restaurant is limited to a kind of stick to your ribs eastern European fare. It's surprising since this area of California has some amazing local farms and dairies. The meat is slathered in heavy sauces that don't add much flavor. They do offer some nice wines from the area to go with your meal. The apple... More

We stopped here for lunch and the place is very charming. We stay outside on a beautiful afternoon on the patio. The waitress was very friendly and food very old world. We had the goulash and fish and chips which were both very good. Your meal also comes with hot homemade sour dough bread an extra treat. The apple strudel... More

We really enjoyed sitting on the patio mid afternoon to relax after a long hike. It's a cozy atmosphere with home like cooking! We split the lamb and apple strudel, and it was just enough to re energize us for our next hike. The picture is of the lunch menu.

Went in there over the weekend to grab some food for the kids. The Server let us know ahead of time that she had stuff for the kids, but did not tell us the price. When we got the check we were surprised to see $12 for Grilled cheese and $16 for fish & chips. It was obviously frozen food... More

This restaurant has not changed, and is still wonderful Czech food. We were lucky to have Vladimir's daughter serve us and got to learn even more about him and his interesting life. She made a great Old Fashioned!

We've eaten here three times in the month since we arrived, and it is very solid. All the Czech food is simple but cooked to perfection. The fish and chips are also perfect (and I'm British, so I know fish and chips !!) The oysters come from a dock about 50 yards from the kitchen and are simply perfect. Service... More

Well, the good news this place is quite unique. It seems to be virtually untouched for probably 50 years or so. So if you grew up there - it might have some sentimental value to you. But the decor does look like something you could find in some old Czech restaurants. The food ... First off, they do capitalize on... More

Visited Point Reyes over the long weekend. Saw Vladimir's when we passed Inverness and my boyfriend wanted wiener schnitzel so when we saw this place we decided to give it a try. Note they only accept cash. They should have put a note outside that it they only accepted cash coz it would be a pity to eat your meal... More

Maybe I'm just not into Czech food. The decor was interesting, but the people running the place seemed more interested in visiting with friends than serving us and we were practically the only people in the place. All dinner entree's are $27 and I'm OK with that if the food is impressive, but to my taste it was nothing special.... More
