I knew Cambria was a small town and as we would be visiting on a family member's birthday I did my homework and found a restaurant I thought we would like and booked a table at Robins for 7:30 on a Tuesday night. I was just playing safe as I expected the restaurant to be quiet but it was packed... More

I had read the reviews before heading to Cambria, and frankly was not impressed. The bullding and Decor are nice. The Waitress seemed as if she did not want to be there, the food was bland. I was expecting more.

Several people had recommended Robin's and we were not disappointed. The menu was an interesting mix, the food delicious, the atmosphere lively without being obnoxious, and the wait staff helpful, attentive and not suffocating. I have a gluten sensitivity and there were lots to choose from - including calamari. One of the treats of Cambria.

The food was flavorless for two of us and for the price it was a rip off. The service was fair. Some of the tables were way to close to each other, the people that sat next to us kept bumping me and had a small child who was all over the place.

Robin's was highly recommended by our hotel (Blue Dolphin Inn) along with a few other places around town. The beach restaurants were closed on a Tuesday night so we made our way into town. They weren't quite ready for us (we were early) so we enjoyed hanging out at the art gallery/shop across the street. The wait staff was VERY... More

A real shame because it looks so promising. The "no oak" wine was either open too long or not good. The pizzetta was too hard. The fish stew lacked flavour and the fish was cardboardy. Curry was very good. I was ill afterwards and only had a cliff bar the same day, so my guess is that it was something... More

We came here as it was recommended for vegetarians - and it was a perfect choice! We just happened to book on a night with great live music and eat in the outdoor area with patio heating to keep us warm. The cheese plate was amazing and our main dishes were the best we have had for all of our... More

My husband and I have been coming to Cambria for years but never get around to eating at Robins. I am happy to say we got a chance to eat there on this last visit and it was worth it! I was amazed at all the wonderful vegetarian/vegan options. Everything was delicious and tasted so fresh, definitely a quality experience... More

Have had dinner at Robin's several times before when in Cambria and never pass up the opportunity to have the salmon bisque as an appetizer. It's chunk full of salmon, creamy, and just plain delicious. This last visit I've decided it's my favorite and next time I'm just ordering the salmon bisque with garlic bread and a glass of wine,...
