Excellent Italian Food

Who would have thought that a Mexican Restaurant would have very good Italian food. Well, they do! Plan to return another time and try the Mexican food.

We were hesitant initially of going to this restaurant, like some of the best restaurants you come across, this one does not look very inviting from the outside. The food is fresh and cooked while you wait in full view, portions were plentiful and food was really good. The waiters were attentive and friendly. A homely atmosphere. Well worth a... More

We were looking for an opportunity to eat here again for dinner and enjoyed our meal tremendously. The twin brother servers were very pleasant, the food just what we were looking for. The speed of service was great too! We had the Mexican food this night but can't wait to come back and try the Italian.

My husband and I had eaten a carry out meal from here in 2009 so we knew what to expect. We ate in this time, with my sister and nieces. We all got Mexican. Service was friendly and fast. Food was hot(temperature) and came out fast. We all enjoyed what we ordered and would go back.

We spent the night in Cayucos on a road trip with friends and stayed across the street from Martin's at the Seaside Motel (as great old-school place). You might think "Breakfast at a Mexican/Italian place? I don't think so." Think again. It was very good. They serve American style or Mexican style breakfasts. My wife and I had two eggs,... More

Martin's serves authentic Mexican food. The dishes feature just enough "heat" to make them delicious, but not too much for the faint of heart. The service is prompt and friendly. They also do take-out. They close at 9pm.

My husband and I spent four days in Cayucos - had a lot of seafood so Martins was a bit of a change (Mexican and Italian). I opted for the 8 inch pizza - it was good - so good we ate there twice :-). The waiter was attentive (not overly) and very friendly. Would recommend this place.

Our family tries to eat here at least once whenever we stay in Cayucos. Great breakfast and wonderful dinners. We have never had a bad meal at this friendly place.
