Lovely little spot with charming patio, superb service and interesting Menu. Salmon Bisque is excellent and worthy of its reputation, Mezze was nice little bits of bright Carrot Hummus, Baba, Tapenade and a roasted garlic half. Thumbs up on everything-salad greens and Asianish dressing, Sandwiches etc. all excellent layered flavors. Service is flawless too.

The hotel recommended Robin's for lunch. It was almost 2:00 pm so we decided to split a burger. It was excellent. The prices were reasonable and the staff friendly. Look forward to going back and trying some of,their other dishes.

Lovely restaurant in East Cambria. 3 separate areas - indoor (where we ate), outside - 2 areas, one with a live band. Great service, nice wine and a fantastic lamb meal. Would recommend highly.

With 694 reviews you probably don't need my review but...Read about Robin's restaurant in a Sunset magazine weekend getaway review. We stayed in Cambria and stopped here for lunch. Excellent salmon bisque and lamb meatball hoagie. Also had a glass of Stolo Chardonnay. It was wonderful. We even toured the winery right outside of town. Delicious.

Drove through Cambria (quaint little town) finishing up Big Sur sightseeing. Asked some locals for a good place to eat and they recommended Robin's. Seemed to be at the top end of the price scale compared to other local restaurants however it was worth it. All five of the dishes we ordered were extremely good however the pork chops and... More

It was a treat to have lunch on the outside porch. Robin's has been around for awhile and is well organized. It is interesting that they feature itms from various parts of the world.

I've been enjoying meals at Robin's for several years now. This time I introduced my daughter and granddaughters to the relaxed ambiance and excellent menu. My six year-old loved the kids' menu spaghetti; my twelve-year-old loved the salmon bisque and avocado half-sandwich; while my daughter (age not revealed...) thoroughly enjoyed the chicken club. I went with my usual half sandwich... More

Went there on advice of tripadvisor and the meal was good. They support there local people and have a great wine list too supporting local winemakers. We had a variety of dishes from the menu. Bit of Thai , Indian and Moroccan. All pretty good but I think they should simplify it and stick to a smaller menu. Great dessert... More

By far one of the best meals we have had along the California coast. Excellent options, preparation and presentation were amazing. Service was good and the ambiance was great. A must stop.
