We were told of this restaurant by someone who had eaten there and we were not disappointed. My husband and I tried a glass of Sangria with our lunch which had a nice fruity flavor.

We ate here for lunch during our 24 hour stay in Cambria. Would highly recommend. The food was one of our best meals in California to date. The vegetable curry was amazing, nicely presented and the pork osso buco was also very good! Nice service and a great find in this small town.

I have tried this restaurant a couple of times and I have been impressed with the food as well as the lovely homey ambiance. It can get rather busy, for good reason. If you know in advance, try making a reservation.

Great service, good food, parking. Food tasted fresh, we were a mix of veggies and meaties - we went heavy on starters and light on main, with a dessert. The dessert was exquisite, lots of options. Kid friendly. Great place.

Took my vegan daughter and my vegetarian daughter here for dinner and they really enjoyed the setting and the food. They have a great food selection.

Nice menu options for flexitarians/vegitarians/vegans. A bit pricey for the portions in the appetizer section but very delish. The mezze was $16 & looked like about $6-$8 worth of food. My teenage vegan needed food so we got it anyway. Service was GREAT! Our waiter knew his menu & answered all our questions.

Emilio, Thank you for your recent visit to Robin's and your feedback. Just to clarify, our Meze is $11, not $16, and has 4 different spreads (miso-carrots, eggplant, chickpeas, roasted garlic) and comes with olives & lavash crackers. We hope to see you again! More

I would just like to say I agree with the positive reviews here on Trip Advisor. The food quantity is excellent and tasty. The wine choices are broad. The atmosphere is relaxing. Our service was attentive. My wife and I enjoyed dinner, and would certainly dine here again.

This restaurant NEVER DISAPPOINTS. I have eaten here too many times to count-years of being a local, and now several times as a visitor. That said, my most recent trip did not disappoint. We sat on the patio, and the temperature was perfect, even at 8PM. They have heaters if it gets cold, but it is always pleasant to sit... More

Went to Robins and had a mediocre meal for which I overpaid. I am not one to send food back, I simply will not return. The chef, however, I ran into down at Mozzi's. He was insufferably rude, pretentious and sat there bad mouthing every other place in town. He then attempted to walk out on his bill. Not a... More
