Adorable setting and friendly staff. We enjoyed sitting on the lovely patio. Our meal, however, was average. The bisque was quite tasty and was my favorite part of the meal. It was a bit like a salmon stew but...I enjoyed it. The main dishes were good...not great. My husband opted for one of the Indian dishes, went with a more... More

Romantic, relaxed outdoor setting underneath the trees and serenaded by frogs! Interesting menu which worked for our vegan needs. Would definitely eat there again.

Great fresh meals with lovely atmosphere whether on the patio or outside in the 'garden' which is pet friendly. Don't leave town without a stop here for their scrumptious Salmon Bisque soup and garlic bread. Their carrot cake is yummy good too !

This is a quaint restaurant and very popular. Our server was excellent, but we felt the food was of medium quality. I had tuna, which was overly done and a little on the dry side.

As way-out-of-towners, we only eat at Robin's once a year when visiting in July, but it never disappoints. Food is creatively assembled & displayed on the plate and always delicious. The garden looked beautiful & watching a hummingbird take a long drink & gentle splashy bath at the big, quiet fountain was a treat. Even though we shared the patio... More

This delightful restaurant has plenty of charm, good service and delicious dishes. My friend and I sat outside and shared several small dishes. If the weather allows, do sit on the patio where a band often plays and frogs serenade you.

usually a wonderful spot for dinner. It is centrally located and on Saturday had live music. Service is always good but the food was just not great. Cheese in enchilada was never melted and overwhelmed with sauce and the greens in grilled tuna overwhelmed with vinegar. I would certainly try again , but disappointed.

I had a curry that was out of this world good. The dish used tempeh, legumes and brown rice for a good source of protein and was moderately, splendidly spiced.

Lovely atmosphere. Small tables. Excellent service. Great menu. Not exactly for babies or kids, more of an adult/couple/small group place for sure. Can't say one thing negative about this lovely restaurant. Definitely hard to get a wheelchair into but perhaps doable with some advance warning. A true "mainstay" of Cambria is Robyn's Nest Restaurant. Truly a worthy dining experience...I had... More
