Here on Galveston Island, hidden downtown and neatly tucked away, there sits a little piece of European flavor just begging to be experienced.
Ladislav Klos, hails from Czechoslovakia. His Courtyard Cafe, which sits on Market Street, was built by hand, starting back in the '90s. There is a courtyard out front so that you may enjoy the nice evenings outdoors.
As you walk into the restaurant, it feels more like the kitchen of a European home, rather than a Galveston eatery. Tables and chairs are spread about, but are not uniform in style, adding to the eclectic look and feel of the place. A chalk board hangs on the left hand side, telling customers what to expect for the night's menu. As you walk around, you can hear the chefs (Mr. Klos and his wife) banging away on fresh meats, mixing homemade salad dressing, and shuffling around in the kitchen.
