Pricey but very good!

Pricey, but why not, its a vacation. Definitely need reservations on the weekends or holidays. This place was nonstop. We could only get reservations for 8:30pm, but checked in with them at 6pm when we got into town. As we browsed the various shops of Cambria, they were kind enough to call and tell... read more

It is fun to seat on the enclosed patio and enjoy the meal. The staff is friendly and attentive, the food is pretty average and the place seems pretty laid back.

We thoroughly enjoyed Robin's. A really unique menu offering many types of food. Friendly staff and good service. Gets busy on weekends so make a reservation.

We have been coming to Cambria for over thirty years. We know because we remember when Robin's opened, and it was turning 30 this week. Any restaurant that stays in business that long is doing things right! Robin's is a testimony to that. This visit I had the White Shrimp Enchiladas, and they were delicious. They were accompanied by black... More

I always love when I can go to a restaurant and get food I enjoy and my boyfriend can, too. Robin's had great vegan options for me and hearty carnivore options for my manly man. He's always happy when food is not an issue for us. The waitress was super sweet and helpful. The host who sat us down was... More

Stopped here for dinner and was not disappointed. Great menu choices along with very good wine and beer list. I had pork loin & wife enjoyed the green curry. Both delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

Ate lunch here on a recent trip. Fish tacos were delicious. Service was very good. They are celebrating their 30th anniversary and its not hard to see why. Only complaint, as with another place in Cambria, is nickel and diming the customer for water. I can understand only serving water upon request - every place in Calif. is doing it... More

Great atmosphere, service and food. We went for brunch. The fruit was perfectly ripe and all our dishes were delicious. The omelette was delivered cold, but the promptly made a new one. Highly recommend Robin's. (Salmon bisque was good, but don't feel like you have to have it. We three split a small bowl just to taste.)

After a long day of touring - driving from San Francisco - we were all looking forward to a nice meal. We were not disappointed. Excellent food and great welcoming service. We were 4 - and shared a few dishes. The Rogan Josh and Green Curry were great. The garlic bread was excellent -- as were the brussel sprouts. Good... More
