Arrived late @ Cambria and found the restaurant nearby our hotel. Had to wait only a couple of minutes to obtain a table although this is a popular place. Large choise of dishes and somewhat expensive. Quality is good but steak was well done although medium-red was requested. Excellent list of wines.

The scenery from the restaurant is breathtaking and that is why I go there. It is located right across the street by the ocean. Food has been good but not outstanding, but you got still good value because of the view. On my last visit the food was still ok, but I discovered that when you order an omelet, that... More

The food was tasty but not super which we would have expected for the price, but the service was good and the employees friendly.

We are a party of 8 and ate here on two different days: lunch on Saturday and brunch on Sunday. Service was very good and everyone enjoyed the generous portions and great food. The views are wonderful too.

We had lunch here and everything was yummy. I had the carnitas taco and it may have been the best taco I've ever had! The other sandwiches my family had were equally enjoyed. Great view! Good wine! We were so full we skipped dinner. The staff was super nice. The woman who seated us was adorable...."we want to sit inside,... More

If you are staying on the beach in Cambria, this is most conveniently located. The food was real good and the service was snappy. They have a nice protected patio (we sat inside). The staff was great. I am sure that sometimes the crowd will be too large and service will suffer, but the food is good and it doesn't... More

My wife, her parents, and I found this spot after a trip to Hearst castle. There was a 15 minute wait for outdoor seating so we had a drink at the bar. The bartender was generous and friendly. We were seated in 10 minutes and Chantalle was our server. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I ordered the catch of... More

We had the fresh fish and it was delicious. Also pleased with great service. A little pricy but we were on Vacation. I would recommend this to anyone.

This place was fantastic. Hidden Gem. What made it was not only the food but more importantly the service. Our waitress was fantastic and handled our poor Aussie humour exceptionally. Secret chocolate Martini a must!
