One step above diner cuisine. Fish tacos were bland. The hummus trio app, served with roasted garlic was not memorable. Service was good.

We shared pad thai and chicken curry. Food was tasty but portions were on the small side. Service was functional, but otherwise nothing noteworthy.

After visiting the Hearst Castle, we stopped in Robin's Restaurant based on reviews here on Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Little did we know they had Happy Hour going on with inexpensive wine and nice choices for appetizers. We selected four or five different ones...with everything ranging from Chicken Satay to Beef Cheek Tacos, Black Bean Nachos, Crunchy Onion... More

Have been here for dinner with group of friends. We were amazed by how good the Indian food was delicious at a restaurant which mainly serves European/ US food. Try their Indian meals and you will not regret! Deserts are also very tasty. The only downfall of this restaurant is service - we had a reservation but have been waiting... More

We were en route to Hearst Castle and wanted to have dinner before we left. Robin's was highly recommended to us so we went there. They have some sort of transitional menu which did not offer a lot of what I would consider dinner items. We all had burgers, when what we really wanted was meat or fish, but they... More

This place had a wide variety to their menu. They had mexican themed food, indian and many others. I had the prawn enchiladas and my wife had green curry with chicken. Both dishes were excellent and perfectly prepared. One of the best beer selections we had on the trip and top notch service. I can see why this place is... More

This is a great place to try something different . I think they called it global cuisine. They told us the wait would be over a half hour and they sat us almost immediately!

There was not one dish that we ordered that was properly cooked. From starters to dessert, everything was either too cooked, dried out , cold, over salted , drenched in oil,, or tasteless. The basic ingredients were probably fine, but too bad they don't know how to cook! Also, they have too few servers, two the service was lacking. All... More

WOW. Food was amazing! Dessert was delicious. The service was great. We arrived 15 minutes early to our reservation and they seated us right away. I cannot wait to return to Cambria and eat dinner at Robins again. I got the salmon and my husband got the 14 oz Kansas steak; both highly recommended.
