Wow what an outstanding meal. I'm gluten free and they had many options for me. The service was friendly efficient and enjoyed some banter. Had dinner inside and sadly it was too dark and depressing inside would have preferred a tabled on the patio. The meals are reasonably priced, and I can understand why you to make a reservation. It's... More

My friend and I were visiting Cambria and our hotelier gave us the recommendation for lunch at Robin’s. We're so glad we went! It's a really cool, quirky little place with lots of plants and full of light and has a creative menu packed with GREAT food. I had a salmon sandwich with the house salad, topped with a refreshingly... More

What a great place. We had lunch on the patio (had our dog with us) and enjoyed every moment we were there. Do not miss out and have the salmon bisque soup which the server highly recommended. Thanks Roxanne!

Robin's is a historic landmark and a wonderful restaurant located in Cambria CA. You can dine in the dining room, covered patio or open courtyard. I had their special of the day, mushroom, spinach, and cheese raviolis, which were delicious. My wife had the BLT salad, everything was super fresh. They get their produce from the local farmers market. After... More

For ambience, it's hard to beat a building-covering wisteria with "vines" as big around as your leg, twining in and out of the patio. I can't remember the name of the Belgian beer, but it was delicious. None of this over-hopped, "Everything's an IPA!" craft beer insanity, you can actually taste the other flavours. The food is also interesting &... More

Robins is one of our favorite restaurants - anywhere in the world. We never miss a visit to Robins while in Cambria and it never lets us down. The food is always wonderful, never had a dish we didn't love. We highly recommend Robins.

My husband and I spend every year in San Simeon celebrating our birthdays. This trip we had dinner at Robin's. We had our 2 dogs so we were seated in the garden area. It was quite lovely and our dogs were given a water bowl. We had a heater which made it very comfortable. We had the Peach Bellini with... More

We've been coming to Cambria for years. Robin's always seems busy but we'd never eaten there until this trip. Service, OK. Food, mixed feelings. Crispy Grilled sprouts - ok. Very big sprouts and not so crispy. Tasty but the sliced raw radish didn't work for me. Garlic bread - agricultural chunks. Not what I'm used to but ok. Robin's Chou... More
