Quaint place, great service

Went there for dinner, great atmosphere, nice staff, and a unique menu selection. We had the spring rolls as appetizers, they were excellent. Ordered a butternut vegetable lasagna that was very good for what it was, as well. My wife ordered an Indian chicken curry dish, the sauce had excellent... read more

Food and service was exceptional. They allow dogs I am told on the patio which we would have been all over but didn't bring the kid on this trip. Last minute show up and really enjoyed the total vibe of the place.

It's tough to find a restaurant that works for kids and adults, but Robin's does just that. Our party of 10 dined on the patio the other night and everyone from the 11-year-old boy, who had pizza, to the adults in our party, who all enjoyed Indian dishes, was happy. The restaurant had the right volume level for a big... More

We came later in the evening so we were seated right away, the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The server we had that evening was super nice and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the Duck, French onion soup and a yummy dessert. Everything in the menu sounded good and we enjoyed our meal there. I would highly recommend it!

We have either dinner or lunch here every time we're in Cambria and it's always delicious. Menu options are healthy and lots of variety. Love the atmosphere on the patio on a nice day. I had the bean soup with chorizo and it was really good. Price is right for what you get. Enjoy!

Everything about this restaurant is first class -- sadly, including the cost! But so well worth it. Presentation is artistic, taste is beyond yummy, and the staff is friendly and efficient.

A full dining room at 6 p.m. told us that this was the place to be. Fortunately, a table for two was available and we settled in for a delicious dinner. The Roghan Josh was just what I needed after a chilly day of wine tasting. The just-the-right-size portion was spiced to perfection. Thanks to everyone at the Moonstone Cellars... More

Get the large bowl of Salmon Bisque. It is a full meal in itself and it is outstanding. When you make your reservation, ask for the "Alcove." It is a little romantic area for two people, My wife and I ate in the Alcove for the first time 40 years ago when the restaurant was called the Grey Fox Inn.... More
