Best value: HAPPY HOUR

This place is expensive, so hit it at Happy Hour: $3 beer (instead of $5.50), $5 appetizers (instead of $8), and very tasty sangria! Best value / biggest portion-size appetizer is the delicious black-bean NACHOS, with flour-tortilla chips. YUM! The patio is pleasant too: really brings the... read more

We had read this was "the" place to eat in town. We were disappointed in the service and the quality of food. We enjoyed meals at other businesses far more, and there were so many from which to choose. I sugest you explore other options. I will review others separately.

Atmosphere is fabulous. Indoors or outside. Very unique selections or you can just order a steak. Wine and beer only, so no martinis. 😪 We split the prawn dish, but we're able to then have room for individual desserts. The couscous was really good! Our friends had eaten lunch there the day before and the hamburger got rave reviews.

We were celebrating our anniversary and Robin's was suggested to definitely go to. We had been here many years ago and at that time had to wait for a while to be seated. This time, no lines and no wait. We enjoyed a delicious meal and I had a flight of local wines to sample - each wine was very... More

The owner of Olallieberry Inn said this was her go to place for dinner. Nice setting diverse and interesting menu with an Asian twist, well prepared food and pleasant local staff. Lots of locally sources items. Didn't expect a place like this in a small town. Well worth a visit. Desserts looked really good, but we went over to Linn's... More

We went to Robin's for lunch last Sunday as it is our friends' favorite place in Cambria. It turned out that they only had a brunch menu so we could not order the things are friends recommended as they are only on the lunch menu. They would not make these items for us. We had the salmon chowder- good but... More

What a wonderful find in Cambria! We were walking around town with our dog on a Monday afternoon and wanted to have lunch somewhere nice. So happy we ran into this place because they have an absolutely lovely patio to sit on with your dog (unlike many places that had one or two tables on a sidewalk in front of... More
