This restaurant does not take reservations and is very busy when it first opens around 5.30 p.m.
We arrived around 7.45, allowing time for the early diners to finish and depart and only had a very short wait in the little bar area where it is pleasant to have a pre-dinner drink. There is an outside patio which is popular for watching the sun set plus two dining areas inside; the nicest one is at the front of the restaurant, the one at the side is a little gloomy. We requested a table in the front dining area and were seated at a table beside the windows overlooking the outdoor area but on a windy night in mid October found it a little draughty. We asked if we could move to one of the booths in this area and the owner/manager? came immediately and organised this as soon as a booth became available; he also checked back later to ensure we were happy. Portions are large - we shared a starter and asked for a break for around 15 minutes before the main course and our waiter organised the timing perfectly. Excellent sea food and good wine, attentive friendly service and an owner/manager who cared about his customers . A really enjoyable evening and we would certainly go here again if visiting Cambria .

great place for better than average food. however I ordered the new england clam chowder in the sourdough bread bowl for dinner and couldn't eat it, it was so peppery. The manager promptly came over and removed it from the bill and apologized! Great service!

Excellent food and appropriately attentive waitstaff set this dining experience apart from most. Highly recommend any of the sea food dishes. The sea bass was cooked perfectly and the presentation a work for art. The accompanying sides were cooked to perfection and very complimentary. The wait staff know the menu and could describe dishes and explain the preparation technique.

The Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill was walking distance from our hotel, Moonstone Landing. We were there on a Friday night and the wait was 1 hr. The great Martinis made the wait a pleasure. The lamb chops were excellent as well as the fish dishes that we ordered. A little pricey, but that is Cambria.

Enjoy the clam chowder bread bowl -- it's a meal in itself. Get there early and it is crowded -- the outdoor heaters and view make it worthwhile
