We were so hungry. So we thought we would probably eat anyting and it would taste good. Mexican food is so easy to cook too. Yeah this place was so bland. Nothing special.

Came in solo and was treated well. They instantly brought chips and salsa. The salsa had nice spice to it. Mild but assertive. I had an excellent top shelf margarita. Yeah, the bar area is a bit loud, but it's Friday night. I ordered one of the specials. It was very nice- Mahi with salsa and cheese. Black beans were... More

We are locals who have given this restaurant a try about every 5 years when there is new ownership or a new cook (definitely not chef), and always thought it was terrible Mexican food. We heard there was a new chef who was introducing new items on the menu so we decided to give it a try again.....last time though!... More

We visit Cambria quite often and like to eat in the different restaurants. The Las Cambriata has a bartender with an attitude, and when we ask if we had made it in time for happy hour she replied yes if we wanted to sit in the bar. Well the bar has a lot of loud out of control people drinking.... More

Years ago when we lived in Cambria, we would eat here regularly. So when we came back for a visit, we had to go again to see if it was as good as we remembered! It was better! We all cleared our plates, which consisted of calamari tacos, garlic-lime shrimp sauteed with fresh jalapenos and tomatoes, and carne asada enchiladas.... More

Exhausted, and not sure what to do... My partner popped into Las Cambritas for a happy hour drink. We chatted with a bartender, had some chips... Had so much fun we stayed until dinner. Was fun to chat with people from town. Food was great!
