This was recommended by one of the art galleries in Cambria. It was fabulous! I had green curry and my husband had salmon plus we had the artichoke appetizer. Everything was perfection. Highly recommend

“Nice Atomosphere, Condescending Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

My family of three chose Robin's for the variety on the menu and booked a table 3 weeks in advance, specifically requesting an outdoor table. Before hanging up, I confirmed that the table would be outside. When we arrived, the hostess took us to an indoor table. When I noted we had requested to eat outside, she left us standing in the dining room and went back to check her book. In the end we got a table in the garden but is their reservation system that flawed or was the hostess inept? Our older waitress merely went through the motions of serving us. Not the level of service you'd expect from this caliber of restaurant. The curries were good but something you could whip up at home using canned Thai curry pastes and coconut milk. Nothing unusual. Ditto for the heirloom tomato salad. The trio dessert on the other hand, was worth writing home about-- mousse, coconut-ginger creme brulee, and sorbet. The gardens were lovely. Recommend requesting a table there.

“A long wait in the middle of the week-yummy food though”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Was surprised that in the middle of the week there was a 30 minute wait. Make reservations, they accept them. My husband and I shared the indian lamp dish. It was terrific. The service was very friendly, but a bit slow. They didn't always have our water filled, which they really should. The spinach salad was superb.

“late lunch luxury!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

The patio in their lovely garden was a wonderful place to bring our dog and have a relaxing lunch. I had the fish tacos - a wonderful mixture of fish & mango salsa that added up to a delicious meal. My companion had chicken tacos, equally as delicious. Really, you cannot beat their fresh wonderful food, and the relaxed pace of the wait staff and wonderful garden make it a do not miss when in Cambria.

“Perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Reunion dinner of 3 HS friends, mid state. We chose to dine at Robin's based on reviews and many recommendations. Perfect food, service and ambience - went back the next day to continue the celebration. Exceptional restaurant.
