“"Aloof"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

My friend and I needed to have dinner before our evening tour of Hearst Castle. Several peole we met highly recommended Robin's. No time for reservations we walked in and were immediately seated. We explained to our hostess our need for leaving at a certain time. They served a wonderful meal and did get us out on time, however, there just seemed to be an aloofness in service. The tables are close together and if you are wanting a romantic evening where you have some space it might be available, not sure, but I would ask before going here.

The food definitely fresh and well prepared. I think, if we had not been under a time restraint would have enjoyed this restaurant more, I think, in retrospect this is not where I would go if need to be out in an hour as the environment is relaxing and a place to unwind for the evening.

The restaurant is located in old town Cambria, lots of fun shops and this is definiitely a nice place for ending the day in Cambria.

“Interesting Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Robin's came recommended by a local in one of the shops and we always take local's suggestions. No surprised, it looked like the local's frequented this charming restaurant as well as tourists. The food was all fresh with interesting combinations of flavors. Can't remember what we ordered but do remember the excellent wine recommendation was spot on. Thoroughly enjoyed everything. It's a bit overpriced but I would go back.

“Vege friendly excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Robins is eclectic and whimsical but don't be fooled, the food is superb. Each month is themed with a different regional menu. There lots of vege options and equal care is taken with them, which is refreshing as so many restaurants treat them as an after thought.

“An enjoyable dinner tops a great California trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Cambria is a delightful area and Robin's Restaurant fits right in. The food is unique (in a good sense); ingredients are fresh and seem to blend together to taste real good, particularly the vegetable soup. The wait staff was attentive and friendly; Monterrey-labelled wine was enjoyable; outside patio was enclosed on this rainy night and felt warm and cozy. Everyone in our family, grandparents, parent and children, had a good time. Oh, and the warm apple pie a la mode, with lots of spoons, was a treat.
