This delightful restaurant in downtown Cambria fit our trip perfectly. It was a wet, chilly weekend and we were welcomed to dine on the warm patio past the cozy interior ding room, complete with a fireplace. The menu is broad, there are items of comfort food as well as low carb, organic, low cal delicious options. I would go back... More

Their salmon bisque is a standout. They also always have a vegetarian soup. Robins Chow as a main course is a superb choice, noodles, vegetables, chicken / beef. Atmosphere in the garden deck is wonderful. Gas heaters keep you warm in cool evenings. Fresh caught fish, steak, and pork chops are there for the meat eaters crew. In my estimation... More

We really enjoyed eating here. After consuming giant sized junk food on our trip so far it was nice to find a restaurant that had smaller more managable portions of really tasty healthy food. We had three courses and could not fault the food or service. Our meal here was our last night in cambria and we certainly were not... More

We enjoyed a delicious 3-course dinner (for 30$) with wine pairing (added 15$). Even on our cold and rainy night, the patio sitting with heating lamps and nice decor was warm and cozy. Beside being very busy, our waitress (Deedee) provided a very friendly and efficient service. The lentil soup, spinach salat, mushroom bruschetta, shrimp skewers, coq au vin, and... More

We dined at Robins during our recent trip to Cambria, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere is really nice, and the service was attentive. The menu is very diverse, with items from a variety of different cultures - lots of vegetarian choices, and had I been in the mood for that I would have tried one. My friend and I... More

I love the lobster bisque at Robin's! A bowl of bisque, some bread and butter, and a glass of white wine make a perfect lunch.

My husband and I came in here on a whim as we were in between lunch and dinner times. The menu, although pared down, was still excellent, the service quick and kind, the outdoor patio very welcoming and beautiful (although maybe a bit chilly). We LOVED our food - from the creamy salmon bisque to the tasty spring rolls and... More

I haven't been here in almost 5 years. The food is as good as I remember. We had the roasted Brussel sprouts and garlic bread to start. We then ordered the salmon bisque and butternut squash soups. We had the calamari from the deli and tge roasted beet salad. A delightful dinner. Our server, Shelley was very attentive. Thank you.
