I'm sure there are many people who love spicy food, but my stomach can't handle it. I was sick for hours after the dinner. I wish they would warn you about the spicy food!

If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go in Cambria. It is small, but great food. My husband and I are huge Mexican food fans and this place did not disappoint. The salsa is super fresh and the chips light and perfect. We had chile rellenos and the child were roasted perfectly before being lightly battered... More

Medusa's food is fantastic. The service is done with a smile. I wish I had asked the waitresses name she was fantastic!

I loved the menu, the service was fab, and fast, and the indoor is small, outdoor is small, but the food is big! Mmm. I would get the tacos, they are tijuana style and tasty grinds. Reasonable prices, great food! Viva Mexico!

Nice little Mexican Restaurant in Cambria. I had heard about the breakfast burritos and went to try one. Alas I saw Chili Verde and had to go with that. The Chili Verde supreme burrito has all the usual goodies I have come to expect in a burrito and I will say the nice chunks if pork were cooked just right.... More

We stopped to eat lunch because the name of the place intrigued us. The salsa was wonderful, great flavor, the tortilla chips light and tasty, & the beer was icy cold. My lunch special chile rellano was the real deal. Great! The vegetarian burrito my husband had was good. We noticed on the black board menu we could have ordered,... More

A lovely little place with colourful decor. We stopped there for breakfast. The breakfast burritos were huge, and of course did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and we enjoyed our stop at this quaint little place. If you're in Cambria, be sure to check it out!

This a little restaurant catering to folks who like simple and tasty food. Considering the lack if competition in Cambria, they can afford to mark up prices. A similar Mexican joint in LA will cost you 40% less.

We stopped here for breakfast on a chilly Saturday morning and considered getting it to go, so we could sit in the car with the heat on. It was colder in the restaurant than it was outside! Other than that being a major distraction, the food was average, and the service not too friendly. My recommendation: keep looking.
