This place is everything you want in a small local restaurant. Quaint with great outdoor seating. Very friendly staff. Outstanding food options from standard to bistro fare. Great beer and wine list. Excellent desserts. Even the vanilla ice cream was from a top notch ice cream parlor when many restaurants skimp on ice cream quality. It seemed as though the... More

This was our second experience at Robins. We were here two years ago and the food was spectacular. You feel you are eating something healthy and yet delicious. Great service. Eating outside was a plus. We highly recommend.

We've eaten at this restaurant probably at least 100 times. One vacation we ate lunch and dinner there for three days in a row and never got tired of it. The food is a wonderful combination of Californian and Indonesian cuisine and there's always something new to try. This is a wonderful old house that was converted into a restaurant.... More

In the town centre we were confronted by a queque of some twenty people waiting for a table in this clearly popular restaurant. We were taken to an outside table in a heated courtyard. It has an eclectic menu and a good wine list. Two of us opted for asian fusion dishes, while our other halves chose tandoori chicken. This... More

Living down the road in Cayucos, we get to Robbins every several months for 25 years. The asian fusion cuisine is consistently well prepared. Our favorites are the Salmon Bisque soup and the Malaysian Chicken. The Salmon Bisque has been our reigning soup champion for several decades. The curries are all very good. Their more recent addition of happy hour... More

Two of the standout entrees were the Tandoori chicken, Roghan Josh lamb curry. Fantastic flavors and locally sourced veggies. The service was perfect - we all had a really enjoyable meal at this place. Would definitely go again.

Nice selection of dishes - curries as well as some southwestern dishes, salmon, and some specials. Some good local wines. I went there on the recommendation of a local, and liked the food and atmosphere. When making a reservation, ask to be seated in the covered patio, very nice tables with an outdoor feel, but without the chilly evening breeze.
