With fresh flowers on each table and smiling wait staff, a small but impressive and well-executed menu awaits. Be sure to inquire about their local wines they serve.

Outstanding French restaurant. Worth the drive from anywhere. Great wine list and owners are the epitome of hospitality. My nephew had duck for the first time and an 8-year-old loved it!

We always stop at Madline's when we are in Cambria. The food is good, the service is friendly and the prices are appropriate for the quality. This is not high cuisine but given the casual nature of Cambria, Madeline's is an excellent choice.

Food and wine selection well balanced and always good! We came as visitors to Cambria for many years and recently moved to Cambria. While we discover more great restaurants, this will always be a " go to" place for us.

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
