Great Place for something different

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.

This is a Mexican & Italian menu. The Mexican was outstanding but the Italian needs work. It's like a coffee shop with a specialty menu.

We really enjoyed our meal. Super generous portions. The tortilla chips were the best -- thin and crispy, not greasy, definitely home-made. The corn tortillas on my soft chicken taco were so flavorful, plus the chicken chunks were delicious. Husband's burrito was huge, and also very tasty. We'd definitely eat at Martin's again.

We have eaten here many times, however this trip the food was not up to par. Not sure what they have changed, but the changes where not for the good! Not sure we will be returning on our next trip. 😞

An unusual mix of Mexican and Italian food. Chose the Mexican and was very good, fresh, hot and fast. The service was very good and we enjoyed the the quiet, family operated restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

The place looks just like a local diner yet the food was something quite unexpected. It was tasty, well presented, the service was fast and friendly - a real treat! We were there 2 years ago and it was definitely a must again this trip.

The restaurant we had intended to visit was closed so we decided to give Martin's a try. They offer American, Italian and Mexican food, so there's a good selection to choose from. The food was very good, more than adequate - I was unable to finish. Service was quick and pleasant.
