When looking for a place to eat on line, this one did stand out: Mexican AND Italian is an odd mix that made me wonder. We wish we went for dinner having wasted a night at Schooners so we were up to have a brunch/b'fast. Seems we just made it in time to have the b'fast menu. Ladies inside were... More

We have ordered takeout from here several times. Lots of food and yummy too! Have never stayed to eat at the restaurant or tried their Italian dishes, but always enjoy what we do get.

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.
