We wound up at this restaurant twice because most others close on certain days during the week in the off season. The dinner was as expected in quality, quantity and price which is to say average. It fills you up, doesn't cost much and the employees are very friendly and helpful.

We had a pet with us and since this is not pet friendly we decide to use take out. I had baked pena paste and my wife had the vegetarian lasagna, nothing but great reviews from us and we would defiantly dine in when we return to Cayucos

Excellent chicken enchiladas, but would suggest staying away from the pizza. The rule to never order Italian in a primarily Mexican restaurant holds true. Good crust, good cheese, too little sauce. Bland. My friends loved their enchiladas. If I go back, I'll stick to the Mexican menu.

Had breakfast here. The food was good and served hot. You can get Mexican omelets with beans or American style with hash browns. Yummy tortillas.

We have to visit Martin's every time we're in Cayucos. Whether we're craving Mexican or Italian, they fit the bill. Great chips and salsa. Killer burritos. Attentive, friendly staff. Convenient location in the middle of town.

Two families got together to try out Martin's. We weren't sure what to expect from a restaurant that serves Mexican and Italian food. We were happily surprised at how good the food was, and the service was very nice.

The copious amounts of delicious burrito help to drown out the agony of unfulfilled childhood dreams. The amazing salsa will remind you of how the satisfying tang of becoming an astronaut might taste, had you ever worked hard enough to become one. Take it to go so that you can lament privately in your fancy oceanside hotel room that an... More

went here for both dinner and breakfast. We both enjoyed our meals. portions were normal size. not ginormous where you can't finish and not too small that you wanted more. They have a patio outback that they use only during the nicest of weather. fresh flowers on the tables.
