The food was what I call very good home cooking. Nothing special. The service was great and the restaurant was clean and cozy. The prices are average under $100.00 for 2 with dessert, dinner, salads and tip. I had the danish ribs and did not care for them. I would return again just to try other things to make sure this was not just a poor choice on the dinner meal.
If guests enjoy the food at the Sow’s Ear, I honestly suspect they don’t dine out very often. We found this menu to be over-priced and the food disappointingly under-whelming. We are not food snobs, but this food is mediocre. After a long Friday of sightseeing, and discovering we couldn’t get reservations that evening at Robins (as almost every local shop owner had recommended) we took a chance on a quiet relaxing dinner at this cute little café. The décor was nice, the restaurant was clean, the host and the staff were very friendly, but the food was poor.
The evening started off promising with a very delicious and remarkable deep fried brie cheese appetizer topped with toasted almonds served with an onion tapenade, sliced green apples, and warm sliced baguette. I ordered the “second most popular entrée”, chicken and dumpling, and my partner ordered salmon what arrived in an unusual edge burned paper wrapping. Both were served with a vegetable medley that was barely steamed. The single dumpling and white chicken chunks and were swimming a soup bowl of over salted white gravy, not at all like “Grandma used to make” as the menu described. This was a very disappointing dinner experience after experiencing an amazing day seeing the sights along the beautiful California coast. You can do better than this in Cambria.
this was a wonderful dining experience. we were not sure which restuarant to go to for the night so we pretty much drew straws, and im glad the we chose the sows ear. its a small little fine ding restuarant with reasonable prices. the atmosphere is very quiet and inviting with a wonderful wait staff. they bring you wheat and white bread the has been baked in a clay pot, and boy is it good. the menu the have has lots of options from mac and cheese to steak to sea food all with fine dining touch, but without the price. i ordered the lobster pot pie , which was mouthwatering and filling. it had several full lobster claw meat and an unbelievable cream sauce all topped with a huge piece of puff pastry. they also have early dinner specials from 5-6. i couldnt even eat it all. it was a great place to eat and a great experince. we will be returning.
What more can I say? the food is wonderful (especially the chicken fried steak) , the service is excellent and the atmosphere is great too. I travel from Bakersfield at least 2 or three times a year just to get this wonderful food. Also a great place for romantics.
I spent my first time in Cambria this past weekend. And I can say out of the bar-b-q place and cafe my girlfriend and I went for lunch and dinner on our three day weekend this was the best place.
To bad I did not get the name to our waitress, she was great. All I know, she spoke Spanish. She was great!!! The food............ummmm....I had pork chops, I can say I never had pork chops that tender in a long time. Make a long story short, you must go.
