We were recommended by the hotel receptionist and it was a very good recommendation. The food was quiet spicy and there was a variety of asian cuisine influence which we really enjoyed. Service was very good and the ambience was very comfortable with a shabby chic interior

We booked dinner for our anniversary meal during our Californian road-trip. I booked weeks in advance having read all the excellent trip adviser reviews. When we arrived there was a queue out of the door so we assumed we were in for a treat. But then our bread arrived and, whilst homemade, it was dry and hard. We thought it... More

As a local I have been to Robin's several times and had some tasty food and some mediocre food, so they seem to be inconsistent. All over the map on dishes, but also all over the map on quality.

Having viewed some menus online, we chose Robin's because they seemed to have some interesting international options......curries, meze, etc. Two out of four of us ended up having steaks in spite of the other interesting options. The green curry was fabulous and they were very accommodating about switching out the green beans for broccoli since we have been eating beans... More

A wonderful little restaurant, with delicious food! It was a bit busy when we went for dinner, but the service was fast! They only have a beer and wine list, no cocktails.

We had lunch here in the garden area around the back from the main entrance. Dogs are allowed out there and it was a really nice experience. I had the Cambrian Avocado Melt sandwich; nice pesto sauce on a croissant. Was looking forward to the salmon bisque (it's AWESOME at Dockside in Morro Bay so I thought I'd try it... More

Fun environment for a gathering of friends and food. The menu offers a variety of tasty treats and creative fare. I had the special prime rib sandwich with a combination of ingredients that made for a tender and flavorful lunch.

We had dinner for 5 in this cosy restaurant. The cook stays clear of adapting the (often oriental) dishes to American taste and brings them in their original form. We found that to be pretty rare and we loved it! Service was outstanding and - given the quality of the food - the price was actually rather low.
