The gluten-free enchiladas were the best we had ever eaten so I want to go back and "eat down the menu." What a friendly, fun place to eat with great ambience, fabulous food and excellent service.

Salads, Asian-vibe dishes and kids' menu all very good. Busy, relaxed atmosphere and service was fine. Would return here. Views into garden on a sunny spring day- what's not to like?

I used to love this place, but the thrill is gone. I always went here when I visited and craved their food. The menu has changed and the portions were small, which I thought I'd never complain about as I'm not a big eater. The service was very odd. The hostess was not friendly, what's the point? The waitress's were... More

The vibe feels so good, warm, cozy, comfortable and relaxed. I really enjoyed it. We had iced tea and ginger tea. Both really good. The salmon bisque was to die for, so was the Nicoise salad and lamb curry burrito. Just delicious!! We tried the carrot cake. So good. Not super sweet so the flavors really shine. We live in... More

If you are looking for meat and potatoes this might not be your place. Here you will find many dishes you haven't seen before. All are made with the freshest ingredients and flavored to perfection. They do have one steak on the menu, it's not a big slab of meat but it is grilled perfectly and served with fresh vegetables... More

Our two night stay in Cambria gave us a chance to try Robin's and Linn's. Both were very good. Great service at Robin's and the Relleno was very good. I will go there again if I make it to Cambria.

We had a very nice salmon dinner here. The bread is excellent and the salmon was well prepared. Had the hot fudge sundae dessert with Mcconnels ice cream - yummy. It was a cold rainy day and it was a little cold in the restaurant. Take a jacket with you on a cold day.

The menu prices are 25 percent higher than the last time I was here. They now charge for tap water due to the "drought". I was charged an extra dollar for each of my glasses of wine, same waitress happened the last two visits also. NO APOLOGY. Well, guess whst Robins? I have discoveted LINNS! I guess I will NEVER...

My son and I visit Cambria at least once yearly. We love the creative items to choose from, the salmon bisque and garlic bread always a must. To be honest, we skip breakfast and have lunch and dinner at Robin's truly the best food in Cambria!
