Great food

Great food, friendly staff, beautiful town. We stopped by here and managed to get a table, try the salmon bisque, it's amazing, especially with garlic bread. Tandoori shrimp were also great and the bittersweet chocolate fudge cake was yummy!! Thanks Robins, we had a wonderful meal

Robin's is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. Yes, the world. Delicious healthy food beautifully prepared. Not a vegetarian restaurant, but very vegetarian friendly. My friends and I have traveled to Cambria just to eat at Robin's. We spent the turn-of-the-millenium new year's eve at Robin's and enjoyed a typically wonderful meal.

What a delightful restaurant! The food is incredible! !! They do have a pet friendly patio and the wait staff is delightful. I would suggest making reservations. Sometimes special events may take up the patio... so if you do have a dog with you you may need to find a plan B.

This was another recommendation from our motel, as it was reputed to offer some good veggie choices. Hmm, not whilst we were there. It was ok, service attentive, friendly and polite, prices were quite reasonable. But for us there was something missing. Perhaps it was being placed in the outside area which did not make us feel part of the... More

Very pretty restaurant. We ate outside and though it was a little chilly (bring a sweater) they put up the heating lamps and it was plenty warm then. I loved eating outside. The grounds are very pretty. Staff and waiters all very good and kind. The food was so-so. For the prices I expected more. I got the pork and... More

The menu is so interesting. The service was terrific, accommodating our special needs. We suggest the curried chicken salad with a Margarita. The peach bread pudding was scrumptious. Eat lunch there if you're on a budget, but don't miss it.

We stopped by Robin's Restaurant for lunch while we were vacationing in Cambria with our 2 dogs. This was on a list of "dog-friendly" places provided by our hotel so we figured we'd go into town and check it out. You should definitely call ahead if you have dogs though, as there is limited garden seating. We called and they... More
