Great food - a bit pricey

We went to the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill on our one night in Cambria and had a great meal. It was my wifes favourite meal of our 2 week California honeymoon! We both had fish dishes (obviously) We sat outside under the heaters and had a lovely view of the ocean. The waiter was helpful and... read more

it seemed like mostly stuff you could buy in a freezer centre. And they are contributing to saving water in California by charging for it if you want a glass to drink.

The food wasn't very good and was pricy. I has a Caesars salad and I have no idea where they got their dressing, I also had a bowl of French onion soup, which I couldn't begin to describe what it tasted like. My wife has shrimp scampi which had very little shrimp and wasn't very good either.

Love this restaurant. The staff goes out of its way to make you feel comfortable and whether eating on the patio or inside, the ocean views are magnificent. They give you way too much food and most end up taking home a doggie bag. Love this restaurant. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and amount of food

We chose this Restaraunt and our hotel next to it for the view and were not disappointed. The food was great as well. The service was average What took away from my experience is that at an average of $40 a plate I didn't expect a sign on my table telling me that water will be 30 cents (our cost... More

Thanks for joining us! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and the great view. As for the water, we charge 30 cents per bottle because our area is currently having a very severe drought. I apologize if this wasn't communicated clearly by team, but we do appreciate everyone's understanding. If you're in Cambria again, we would really love... More

This place is a staple for our family every time we are in the area. The food can be a bit pricey but the restaurant is one of the only in the area that's actually right on the water and delivers great food. The fish tacos and the Health Nut sandwich are my favorites. The crab salad was not super... More

our waiter couldn't remember our order. he came back to ask us a second time for our main courses. He served us the wrong wine which was much cheaper than the one we had ordered and then forgot to charge us for it (which we corrected!). He was really out to lunch but the food was good.

I'm so sorry about the scattered service and I completely understand how frustrating it is to have order mistakes. This is not how we typically present ourselves. It sounds like you enjoyed the food, I just wish our service hadn't suffered from an off day. Thank you for the feedback and I'll be sure to look into it. If you're... More

Our 4th visit to Cambria, and Moonstone is our favorite place. Sunday Brunch is incredible (menu) and Champagne. Super for early supper and Cocktails. View and service are "the place to be". LOVE IT!

After arriving to Cambria, this seemed to be the only place open for food. I believe it was about 2 p.m. on a Saturday. It was busy but the wait was not too long. We requested a seat out on the patio and were able to see the ocean from our table. It's beautiful outside if the weather is nice.... More
