The restaurant is comfortable, and the food is good. The menu is original...I especially enjoyed my scallop enchilada! The salsa is flavorful and has a little punch to it but not overly spicy...if you want to jazz it up, just add some of the hot sauce that is available on each table. They have a bewildering array of Margaritas...we went... More

Spent the long day driving down Highway one to Cambria, and needed something to eat. This restaurant/bar fitted what we wanted perfectly. Sat down and got our drinks with a basket of nachos and the best fresh salsa I've had. Then we got a starter, which we shared and tasted amazing. I opted for the burrito as recommended to me...

We were there in the off season which is probably why it wasn't really crowded. There were several tables inside that were available so waiting in line wasn't a problem. I got the flautas both nights we were there and they were great (they were a special so I'm not sure they are always available). My wife got chicken fajitas... More

We had our 2 dogs with us and had to sit on the patio. The evening was quite cool and despite there being heaters on the patio we were told that the owner refused to put propane in them so they were useless. The food was OK but it very quickly became stone cold. We were in and out of... More

On our day trip to Cambria, we stopped at Las Cambritas for some drinks. We sat outside on the patio right next to the "smoking table". Several in our party are smokers, so we asked if it were ok. Unfortunately we were told no, despite the fact that the folks right next to us were allowed to do so. The... More

There's a lot better Mexican food on offer in the states but the evening atmosphere was good and there was live music playing. The bar staff were really friendly.

Las Cambritas was our first stop on a long weekend vacay. First was a beautiful blended margarita served in a pint glass. Although it was a bit on the icy side, it was great because it was a warm weekend. We ordered some of the $2.50 tacos, and they were stuffed with meat/cheese. We had chicken, carnitas, and beef, and... More

Whenever we go to Cambria we have to have the Fried Avocado. In fact we sometimes have an order each for dinner! The Cadillac margaritas are yummy also.

The worst shrimp cocktail I've ever had. Sauce was thick and tasted like Ketchup. Was expecting way better from a Mexican restaurant near the coast. Staff was very friendly. Probably wont eat here again.

My daughter and I stopped at this Mexican restaurant because of other reviews we read. Unfortunately we did not have a good experience. The salsa tasted like it came from a jar. I had the carne asada burrito which tasted awful. My daughter's chicken tacos were just 'okay'. Nothing to talk about! The serving staff, however, were very friendly and... More
