I expected more than we received. Our service was erratic - the wait person would agree to do something and then disappear and forget us. When the food came, we did not get what we ordered and the taste of the food was average at best. The building is attractive and the location on the river is good. I can... More

This is a restaurant with lots of possibility and a lovely owner from Prague. I ate an omelette which was so-so, but I WISH I had ordered either the Wiener Schnitzel or Jaeger Schnitzel! Next time!

It's hard to find a Czech German Slavic Restaurant in USA anymore. So I if I'm in the mood for Veal weinerschnitzel and in the area this is where I go. They even put a fried egg on it when I asked. Schnitzel was VG. Apple Cake was decent. We had bratwurst sausage one day for lunch. I think food... More

Close to river, great food, atmosphere, service, and the Ewe and I store next door is quite a treat.

We went to eat here this evening and were told they were only seating reservations and the restaurant was closed to all others. Funny thing is there were several open tables, especially on the outdoor patio area. As we were exploring the river area across the street, we noticed those same empty open tables on the patio thirty minutes later.... More

We moved to San Antonio 3 weeks ago. We heard about Boerne and excited to enjoy some foods from where we had visited. My husband had a good beer, we ordered the specials for Saturday. We try and do this thinking that would be the freshest item to order. The Roull? special with meat wrapped around peppers and a sausage... More

Since we winter in Texas & I am Bohemian, I'm always very excited for our first visit to this restaurant to enjoy the same food my mother used to prepare. We stopped in with another couple and most of the food was very medioce and slow to arrive. But the biggest disappointment was the fruit dumpling dessert which was only... More

We have been here several times in the past year and it is usually OK. Our most recent experience was disappointing. We arrived for our 6:30 pm res and were promptly told that they were out of specials and German potato salad (a staple on the menu). The meat loaf was OK. The Rauf Schnitzel was bone dry and swamped... More
