This rather hidden gem tucked behind the beautiful hills near Pt. Reyes Refuge is a true delight. About 8 cabins that were formerly fishermen's cottages have been beautifully renovated and decorated in a comfy and luxurious way and each of the cabins have a wood burning fireplace and deck over the water with lovely views across to Pt. Reyes. It...

The cottages could not be more beautiful or perfectly placed. Step out of the back deck and you are over water. Very comfortable rooms. Wonderful fireplace and living room. Can not wait to go back. They even have a two bedroom cottage with separate bathrooms.

We had young children with us and ny four children with their families. Children enjoy schnizzels and they were very good.the pastas were ok, nothing spectacular. Focachias were disapointing. Salads were fresh, the parmasan cheese was not a big chunk of cheese but grated in a jar. Not expected in an italian restaurant. I had putaneska, no, i would 't...

The food here was excellent and the wait staff was friendly and helpful. We went on a week night so the place was a little empty, however, that didn't stop the wait staff from being helpful and attentive. The steaks were the best we had on the island! Try their special Mojito - it was a fantastic surprise!

We returned to Nick's Cove Restaurant to celebrate a birthday. While good, it wasn't spectacular, and it was a little pricey. The view over Tomales Bay remains the best part of the experience. Nick's Cove Restaurant has a full bar and room to accommodate large groups.

We stayed in a special cabin right on the water, literally, the cabin is on concrete pier posts and hangs over the water. We of course had an unobstructed view of Tomales Bay, the hills that ring the Bay and the boat shack and pier for the restaurant. The place is very quite and peaceful. In need of rest, relaxation...

I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Nick's Cove. Upon arrival we were greeted quickly and were able to check in early ! We then were told we could have an appetizer of oysters or a cheese plate set up to our cottage. Dinner was fun and the view was fantastic. Continental breakfast was brought right...

Just spent a wonderful relaxing weekend in oh so restful Nick's Cove. From the warm welcome (with cheese plate) to the wistful goodbye our weekend was delightful in every way. Charming cottage, complimentary continental breakfast delivered to our room, comfortable dining in the restaurant. Was truly blissful.

We came to Nick's Cove restaurant as a large group for a special birthday celebration. We called ahead several times to confirm menu and a few food restrictions (one diner was vegan and two were gluten free), and were told that the restaurant would accommodate. Every aspect of the service and food we received was disappointing, from the waiter who,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nick's Cove Restaurant, Oyster Bar & Cottages is a West Marin icon. We are located directly on the shores of stunning Tomales Bay in the town of Marshall, California. We are open every day and welcome you to enjoy this very historic treasure for an overnight retreat or a stop midday to enjoy a delicious lunch on your Highway One travels. Our menu features local farm-fresh produce, locally sourced seafood and meats and our Executive Chef prepares a daily menu that focuses on the bounty we procure from our neighboring farms and ranches. We serve lunch Monday-Friday at 11 am; brunch Saturday and Sunday at 10 am and dinner every night at 5pm. We have twelve luxury cottages: five are situated directly on Tomales Bay and seven are situated across historic highway one in a meadow. Views and serenity abound!
