Don't go out there with food though....the birds will eat you alive!!!! Make sure you eat $30/pp at the restaurant or you'll pay an arm & leg for parking!

We were driving down alone coastal highway from Santa Babara to Long Beach via Malibu. Since our goal was to enjoy as much of the scenic route we stopped anywhere we could get a different glimpse of the ocean on right hand side and the mountains on the other side. Also the malibu beach and the luxury homes were subjects... More

Beautiful, relaxing place to go with the family. Parking is $40.00 however if you eat at the beach café you only pay $6.00 with ticket validation.

Beach restaurant, where we enjoyed a lovely lunch! No dress code, you can feel your toes in the sand. Perfect food, Ahi tuna salad at its best! Friendly service. Validated 6 dollar parking. Great leisure time.

Massive food portions, mostly fried food. My clam chowder in sourdough bowl was superb and the cheesecake historic. You have to pay $30 to get your parking validated and pay an extra $6 for parking. It's not cheap. Beers are $6.50. The beach is nice, there aren't that many places on the ocean and the drive is worth it. Funny,... More

But go on a weekday early if you can. Portions are enormous and the beachside and on the beach tables can't be beat. It can make the whole day special starting out with huevos rancheros and dolphins cavorting in front of you!

Sure its in Malibu and it pretty. But there are a lot of beaches in So Cal that the same can be said for. The pricing of the parking whether you eat or not basically is around $40. That is really steep. Better to spend the money on gas and go elsewhere.

5 of us drove to Malibu for a beachside experience on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. P Cove is a perfect beachside joint to just hang out and enjoy the beach. Planted ourselves on Adirondack chairs - ate a bucket of calamari, shrimp cocktail and drank beer which enabled us to park for $6 as opposed to $40. Lots of tourists... More

Situated on the beach at Paradise Cove, a lovely place to eat, though the parking is expensive and the food was not cheap. However, it was a good experience and I would go there again.

we thought of trying this place, and knew about the 40$ Parking spot (6$ for 4 hours if you get your parking validation, but you have to pay for minimum of 30$ of food at this creepy restaurant). Nothing worth the 36$ spent for few hours at the beach. no smoothies available, only seafood in an atmosphere of a macdonald,... More
