This was discussed as the BEST restaurant in Cambria, but our food was only OK. MY filet & crab cake were very good, but the stuffed chicken was a bit dry and bland. Ambiance was just OK. Didnt love it for the price.

Wine Tasting Room by Day & Restaurant by Night! I think one of the best ways to get the full experience of Madeline's is to visit our open daily wine tasting room where you can try some of the best boutique wines that the central coast has to offer and then finish off your custom wine tasting with dinner in our full service dining room! We thank you for spending a few moments on our website and hope you enjoy all that the central coast has to offer. See you soon! David - Chef/Owner
