Dropped $50 for lunch with my wife and ordered fish and chips. Fish was quite overdone, have had better catfish fingers in Florida at a much lower price. For that kind of money I expect it done right.

This restaurant has the very best view of the ocean from there outside dining. I do not take reservations and are often fall but it is worth the wait for the quality of the food the staff and the ambience.

Spent the weekend for a quick getaway in Cambria. This restaurant was within easy walking distance from the hotel. Although somewhat pricey, the food and drink were excellent. I had the seafood pasta, which included A LOT of various seafoods; clams, mussels, shrimp, scampi. The sauce was very light. My wife had the grilled salmon, which was very lightly smoked.... More

We started off our first day (Sunday) in Cambria at the Moonstone Beach Bar & Grill for brunch. Delicious food. Complimentary champagne. I don't normally like champagne, but this champagne was delicious. My son ordered a clam chowder bowl and it did not disappoint. I had the sausage and potato scramble and it was delicious!! We sat out on the... More

this local restaurant has some great eats and even better views. This is a child friendly place with comfortable outdoor shaded seating. The wait can be lengthy, averaging about an hour for outdoor seating on a beautiful day outdoors. Food is reasonably priced and delicious. I will be returning!

We were staying just 3 minutes walk away and this place had been recommended so decided to have our evening meal there. It has a cosy feel to it, reasonable in price and the staff were friendly and on the ball. We started off with clam chowder, quite thick but really tasty - we actually picked some more up on...

After a long walk along the boardwalk on the cliff, a big bowl of hot clam chowder was a big hit! Thick, rich, and l-o-a-d-e-d with clams. We have never been disappointed with our stops here for lunch or dinner

I didn't expect much from this restaurant, but was pleasantly surprised. The food was good, the portions fairly large. Everything seemed fresh and was certainly tasty. And we had quick and friendly service. I'd also like to add that it seemed like a family-friendly place, which was important as we had a 2 year old with us.

Whenever I'm in Cambria, lunch at Moonstone is a must. I love the Walnut Gorgonzola salad. And the fish and chips is awesome. As is just about everything else I've tried there. The patio is the preferred area when the weather is good, but inside offers good views as well. Service is usually spot on.

I had just gotten my braces tightened and told the bat tender I needed something to sooth the pain but not too harsh. He made me a great drink with ginger beer it helped relax my gums surprisingly.
