This was very lively, fun place to eat lunch. They offer a simple menu that serves huge portions. We ordered fish and chips and clam chowder-we could not finish either meal!

In the evening they offered a Karaoke contest which was obviously a community event. There were many locals who had fabulous voices, very nice entertainment.

The atmosphere was wonderful, very romantic setting. The tables are both inside and outside. You can enjoy a spectacular sunset while sipping a glass of wine.

While eating outdoors it gets a bit chilly but they restaurant provides outdoor heaters and soft, warm blankets!

You can enjoy a unique smoked salmon quesedilla that is so luscious, or you can have seafood, beef or chicken.

We enjoyed wine tasting, live Jazz bands, shopping, and the Otter Trolley.

There are over 40 nearby wineries. We toured Harmony Cellars which is about five miles from Cambria.

We visited many speciality shops that offered mouth-blown glass!

Mainstreet is charming in a village like way. The shops are cottage industry types with many locally made items.
