Our hotel (Fireside Inn) recommended our group of 15 try Las Cambritas for dinner this week and we had a great time. I emailed Rick weeks before we arrived, he responded right away and was was incredibly accommodating. He even sent me a text after dinner to ask if we had a good time. Dawn & Crystal took great care... More

The gal at my hotel recommended this place and here I sit after devouring some of the best tacos of my life. Both the smoky carne asada and carnitas were tender and perfectly seasoned. I dumped a bunch of their amazing salsa on top and washed it down with a cold one. I'll be back!

Delicious food and great atmosphere. On Sunday, they play live music out on the patio and it's simply lovely! Enjoy your favorite cocktail and the yummy food. Great service.

Good mexican food. A big part of my positive review of a mexican restraurant always begins with the chip and salsa. I have found that an eatery knows how to make a good salsa, the rest of the meal usually follows in step. This was the case for Cambritas - very good chips and salsa. This was follow up by... More

We had a meal in here and a take away in our two day stay in Cambria. We had a Special burrito which was huge, partnered with a side of spicy fries and that was actually enough for two with "normal European"appetites. You also got loads of complementary tortilla chips with a delicious home made salsa. Good food, pleasant surroundings,... More

The restaurant is comfortable, and the food is good. The menu is original...I especially enjoyed my scallop enchilada! The salsa is flavorful and has a little punch to it but not overly spicy...if you want to jazz it up, just add some of the hot sauce that is available on each table. They have a bewildering array of Margaritas...we went... More

Spent the long day driving down Highway one to Cambria, and needed something to eat. This restaurant/bar fitted what we wanted perfectly. Sat down and got our drinks with a basket of nachos and the best fresh salsa I've had. Then we got a starter, which we shared and tasted amazing. I opted for the burrito as recommended to me...

We were there in the off season which is probably why it wasn't really crowded. There were several tables inside that were available so waiting in line wasn't a problem. I got the flautas both nights we were there and they were great (they were a special so I'm not sure they are always available). My wife got chicken fajitas... More

We had our 2 dogs with us and had to sit on the patio. The evening was quite cool and despite there being heaters on the patio we were told that the owner refused to put propane in them so they were useless. The food was OK but it very quickly became stone cold. We were in and out of... More
