Story. A passion for wholesome and fresh. A charming seaside setting. Inspiration drawn from world cuisines. Chapter 1. Robin Covey and Shanny Covey first began serving wholesome fare in the back room of a small health food store in Cambria. The popularity of their dishes allowed them to soon expand and open Robin's, which was then located on Bridge Street. From the first meal, guests packed into the small setting to experience the original creations coming from the kitchen. Chapter 2. Five years after opening, Robin & Shanny moved the restaurant to a historic adobe house on Burton Drive. The spacious garden setting, rustic nooks, and warm fireplace meshed appropriately with the handcrafted meals that Robin's had become renowned for. Chapter 3. Chow. Tempeh. Cioppino. Curry, and the largest selection of unique vegetarian dishes on the coast. Robin's continues to lead with inspirational cuisine. Head chef, Shaun Behrens and his team combine artful flavors with the area's cornocopia of fresh produce, meats, cheeses, and wines. Continuation. Robin and Shanny decided to share the Robin's philosophy with San Luis Obispo, just south of Cambria. In 2003, Robin opened Novo in downtown San Luis Obispo, and in 2010, the business partners opened Luna Red. I want my guests to leave Robin's feeling that they have been well fed, both in body and spirit. When my staff and I can accomplish this, it makes all the hard work worth while.
Heard Robins was a wonderful restaurant, boy was I disappointed. The sea bass was dry and overcooked, service was horrendous and slow. I always like to give places a second shot, but I don't think I'll be able to.
