The outdoor feel of the dining room is special, the food very tasty, the service consistent and polite, and the wine very nice.

As always food was excellent and we appreciate the "organic" and "home-made" efforts. Especially delicious is the salmon bisque soup. Best of that type I've ever had.

Service was always there, but not over-bearing.

WE get to Cambria about two times a yr. and always make Robbins one of our eating venues. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Fine cuisine and attentive service, even on a busy summer Saturday night. We also try to dine at Robin's when in Cambria.

We'd been through Bay Area and Monterey traffic, pleased that we had a reservation in place in Cambria. What we found was much more than we'd anticipated. Great food (pizzettes on flatbread with Indian-inspired seasonings & grilled artichoke with great dipping sauces for starters; sea bass special, paella, and lasagna for main courses), all served with warmth and care. Our server recommended a local wine that went well with the fresh fish. Made us wish that we had more time on the central coast.

We decided to come back to Cambria just to eat at Robin's again. They have an awesome Thai curry dish that my wife raves about. It reminds us of our travels to Thailand. Myself, I love the lamb dish with it's earthy flavors that are satisfying to the last bite.

Robin's is always wonderful. This time
they featured Brynne Albanese of Café
Musique. They were outstanding, and
Robin's garden is the perfect venue.
A glorious experience---the food,
music and surroundings!!

My husband and I have been eating at Robin's for many years. We love their food. My husband is a vegetarian and they have lots of choices for him. They also have meat and fish too. I love the curries and the tandoor chicken dish. They have excellent desserts as well. I have never had a bad meal in all the years we have been going. The service is excellent too. Really nothing bad to say all positive. You won't be disappointed.

We visit Cambria about once a year and always make a point of having dinner at Robin's. The menu has so many good dishes that it's hard to choose. And it's never been disappointing. It's popular and noisy, but the staff seems genuinely happy to be there and that makes for a wonderful dining experience. The slipper lobster enchiladas were excellent, as was the heirloom tomato salad. Their homemade desserts are always delicious.

Outstanding! Best dinner in the Paso Robles area and we had tried all the popular ones. I had the chicken breast and Robih salad. Husband had the salmon and French onion soup. All were delicious. The vanillla bread pudding was unbelievable with a layer of real old fashioned English custard that was smooth and light. They had an excellent selection of reasonably priced wines. The bread was warm and delicious. I loved the charming cottage. What a gem.

We had a group of six and were seated promptly. We had purchased some local wine and before we had to ask our server brought us wine glasses and had them open and served! That is great service. We enjoyed the soup special of the day (French onion and mushroom soup which was very good, salads also fresh and tasty. A wide variety of entrees, flat iron steak, mushroom lasagna, chicken and lobster enchiladas. All were excellent. Finally ended with some great pudding. The atmosphere is casual on an enclosed garden patio, a very nice evening at Robin's

We very much enjoyed the atmosphere, the service, and the food. The lobster enchiladas were wonderful. The mushroom and spinach lasagna, while we applaud the inclusion of a vegetarian dish on the menu, was so heavy with cheese that it felt sort of counter to the idea of a vegetarian dish. It tasted good, but was too rich in our opinion or for our taste. But all in all quite good and we'd recommend it. The curries looked good and we'll try those if we go back, but were just in Cambria one night.
