Four of us had dinner in the garden at Robin's on Thanksgiving. The service was excellent. The environment lovely. The food was quite tasty. Good value. We will come back again.

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely dinner here. We each ordered a glass of wine and shared an order of crispy Brussels Sprouts (delicious and very ample). My main course was lamb Roghan Josh which was just the right amount of spicy. It came...with a few condiments on the side which were so good I asked for more and got them without hesitation. My partner enjoyed his Szechuan Peppercorn Crusted Flat Iron Steak. We were stuffed and so were able to resist ordering what looked like very nice desserts. The waiter gave excellent service. The bill for two glasses of wine, an appetizer and two mains came to $109 before tax which I though was a little high. We thought we'd be cold sitting in the patio but the heaters were effective and we were comfortable.More

My wife and I were driving from LA to SF on vacation and decided to spend a night in Cambria. Reserved table at Robin’s and enjoyed it immensely. It was a cool October evening and the table in the dining room was cozy by the...fire. The place has a warm, rustic vibe. Staff were friendly and helpful with wine and food suggestions. We shared the salted beets for an appetizer: arugula, red and yellow beats, goat cheese dressing and toasted pistachios. We were tempted to order a second plate. We tried the veg lasagna (w Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay) and the Moroccan lamb shank (w Labyrinth Cabernet Sauvignon). The wines paired well and were suggested by the staff. We will be back to Robin’s the next time we pass through Cambria. Highly recommend this place.More

I was very excited to go to Robins for dinner according to the pictures and reviews. The location and patio was great along with the server whom was very friendly and knowledgable. But that being said the food was just ok! Hardly any flavor on...most anything we ordered. Recommendations for Truffle fries and famous garlic bread. Neither had much flavor. I had the chicken breast which had more flavor than the flat iron steak that my husband had. The only item that was not disappointing was the Chocolate Sundae!!! Not sure I would go backMore

We were in town celebrating a birthday and decided on this spot based on the rave reviews. We were seated in the patio, which was just lovely. The staff are attentive and friendly. We split the tomato soup and the Lebanese salad. Both were fine,...if a bit bland. We also had the garlic bread, which was really good, but we wondered why there was no butter, and didn't realize until later that it was supposed to come with it. My friend and I also split the Thai Green Chicken, which was really good. The vegetables were crisp and the broth creamy and spicy. Our waitress brought out a sundae to celebrate the birthday, and we added on a tiramisu, both a great way to end dinner. The location and ambiance may be the stars of this place, but the food is solid. A great choice if you're in the Cambria area.More

We heard about Robin's through friends and also through Tripadvisor. Robin's is indeed THE best restaurant. Fresh ingredients with every dish. Nothing super-heavy. No guilt feeling as you chose from the menu.

Everything was quite nice all around, in a very nice outdoor setting. My salad tasted so fresh they must have just picked it minutes before. Very enjoyable meal and would highly recommend. Lots of healthy choices.

Having read the reviews, I was looking forward. Asked the friendly server for his recommendations regarding menu selections and we ordered his favorites. They were all bland. My noodles were very greasy. Don’t believe all the hype. It’s not all that…

Drove to Cambria for lunch after visiting Hearst Castle-it was well worth the 12 miles. Robin’s is centrally located and just off Main Street. We were immediately shown to a table in the garden. The service was very friendly and attentive and our meals -the...Robin’s Chow ( one with chicken and the other with tofu) was truly delicious. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked very good. This is a real gem and not to be missed when in the area.More

Very nice venue. Diverse and excellent food, friendly staff. We were seated pretty fast in a very nice room with vegetation, but there is also a very nice garden. The chocolate fudge was awesome ! Would really recommend

Having dinner at Robin's was a real treat after a long day in the car and a late afternoon tour at Heart Castle. We were glad we had reservations and really enjoyed having dinner in the garden. It was very comfortable on a typical summer...evening and so glad we did. The garden is beautiful and creates a wonderful ambience. The menu is eclectic, leaning international in its design. We had southeast Asian dishes as well the Moqueca, a Brazilian fish stew that was great. Several of the dishes have a hint of sweetness to them that was unique and refreshing. Overall the menu was quite diverse with something for everyone, including anyone wanting to be a bit adventurous and try something different. Next time were are passing through Cambria we're definitely coming back.More

Loved, loved loved it there. So professional and the staff was excellent. Great service and truly a beautiful garden setting with tons of gorgeous plants and flowers everywhere. You must sit outdoors!! heat lamps if needed on a chilly night. Dog friendly! The food was...excellent as well. The best dining in Cambria for sure. I had the Robins Cow which was awesome and my husband the Moqueca. he really wanted mine but I wouldn't trade with him. Next time...Oh we started with the warm cheese - a bit on the loose side but good. Very memorable. And they sent a follow up email the next day-so thoughtful. it's a must go to.More

I had lunch at Robin's Restaurant. The outdoor area is lovely. The service is excellent and the menu has a great variety of food options. I went with the old American standby ... Cheeseburger. It comes with fries or a small salad. Though tempted to...get a salad I went with the standard fries. The burger was delicious but it was $19. Yikes. But food seemed to be expensive everywhere in Cambria. . .More

If memory serves there is a ramp leading to the restaurant. Staff there are very pleasant and most accommodating so I'm sure you will have a very enjoyable experience. Plus the food is great!
