My wife and I vacationed in Cambria to celebrate my 70th birthday, selecting Robin's for one of our lunches. The food was quite delicious and the service courteous. We dined in the patio so that our dog was able to join us. The patio is beautifully landscaped, adding greatlly to the ambience of patio dining. Once we were initially served,... More

I had a late lunch/early dinner there in late November. The staff is very attentive, the food was delicious and I hope to return one day. The mid-day menu is limited (and I didn't see either the lunch or dinner menu) but had more than enough to offer and definitely had items not typically at restaurants I go to.

Wife and I spent an afternoon in Cambria and decided to have lunch at Robin's Restaurant. As we approached the restaurant, we were pleased at its quaint appeal. The restaurant is dog friendly on the patio and that is where we sat with our Lab. The patio looks out upon a beautiful small garden area full of plants, color and... More

This is a lovely restaurant with local character. Robin's chow with tofu is a perfect option for vegetarians.

We came here with my fiancé for a date night what trip advisor recommended. It was nice live jazz music but I didn't enjoy the food. I liked red wine and appetizers but main dinner wasn't what I expected.
