Great dinner: something different for the wife & kids. Personally, I love a litlle adventure, so we asked Vladia (?) for some help and were not disappointed. Pilsner Urquell on tap! Don't forget dessert!

Loved the Vienna Schnitzel with sweet and sour red cabbage. People were very friendly, helpful and attentive. Would definitely go again if we are in the area. Hubby had the garlic roasted rabbit, which he thoroughly enjoyed.

Salad was OK, bread was good. Meat was left over from days prior, was dry and relatively tasteless. Price was very high for what was served. Chairs were dusty and dirty.

Stopped for lunch and was rather disappointed. The place could use a good cleaning and possibly someone to help them with name and food items. The building/structure itself is interesting and has potential. I was rather surprised by a group of musicians, they were lively and created a good energy. But, I think/believe they were playing all Irish ditties. ;-)... More

My girlfriend and I hit this place on the way back from the lighthouse. My girlfriend is from the Czech Republic and so we have dined at several Czech places in Northern California. Finally she found dumplings like her grandmother makes. The gentleman who waited on us said he was the grandson of the original owners who taught him everything... More

We were served by Vladia, the helpful & charming daughter of the restaurant's founder. Although not on the menu, they did serve fish & chips, which was very good. There were absolutely no vegetarian offerings. The very old school Central European menu had potential, but most things were covered with gravy, which detracted from the meal. The only dessert was...

Like many, I suppose, we were looking for a restaurant on our way back from Point Reyes Lighthouse where we could get a good hot meal on a cool, windy day. We were not disappointed in Vladimir's. A large glass of Pilsner Urquell from a friendly waitress set the tone while we munched on homemade bread in a charming decor.... More

My wife and I stopped here on the way back from point Reyes lighthouse. We used to you Czechoslovakian meals when we were living in Brussels during the 70s. The restaurant itself was very much like one of the restaurants where we used to go to and the food was excellent. The chef and owner was very friendly and took... More

Although it was kind of friendly which any country establishment should be, the food was blah! and the service and atmosphere the same, got the impression that the owner would perfer to be somewhere else... I hope we were there on a bad day ?

We stopped at this place on our way back from Point Reyes, because one of us was curious about Czech food. Sadly the quality of the food was very disappointing - it was bland, stingy portioned and for those of us who did know Czech food hardly recognizable as such. Especially the goulash soup, whether Czech or Hungarian of origin,... More
