Nice beach given by mother nature so 3 stars only for that. Who are the people behind this concept? I don't know if CA style is suppose to be a bit chabby and that people go without expectations in this areas? I will gladly pay a lot of money for quality and service. I would like to send the people... More

This is THE California beach scene locale from the time of "Gidget" - the "Beach Boys" - gentrified Hollywood, to the present day. Parking is a killer $40.00 last time I was there. So plan to eat & have drinks on the beach. The amount that you paid for parking is a credit towards food & drinks. Overall Awesome..

Paradise Cove is a fun place to visit and eat. The beach is beautiful. Food is good but a bit pricey. You can sit on the beach to eat. Cannot drink alcohol except for beer on the chairs on the . beach . Parking is expensive and scarce.

We love going to Paradise Cove Beach Restaurant! Always fun and delicious Sea Food. There is outdoor lounge chairs on the sand to enjoy the views of the Pacific and sip your favorite drink. We shared the steamed clams, calamari, and shrimp scampi, delicious! Great restaurant to take out of town guests. I'm a native Californian and remember going there... More

We arrived at 10:00am on a Tuesday. The most surprising thing was the parking fee. If you are eating at the cafe only the fee is $6.00. If you stay at the beach and are there 4 hours or more the fee is $40.00. A lot of people park on the road outside the beach/entrance area, we decided to pay... More

After eating in the cafe, out to the beach. Left of pier no rocks in the surf. Right of pier, the rocks come in with surf and can hit feet. But more shells to find. Good for couple hours.

I love the Paradise Cove restaurant for its excellent breakfasts (lunch and dinner just OK). Enjoying the restaurant first also gives you significant break on the parking charge.The beach is a wonderfully scenic spot and excellent for walking. I greatly enjoy taking a stroll up the beach after breakfast to explore the rock formations and tide pools and inspect the... More

The parking here has to be some of the highest price in the world. The restaurant is ordinary but is right on the sand.

If you want to experience the rich and famous, this is the place to go, at least for the rich! Nice beach with great waves and boogie boarding. Parking is way expensive unless you validate at the beach restaurant. You can park on the street above but it's a good walk! Get there early as the place fills up. Restaurant... More

The natural beauty is great - but the commericism is horrible. Avoid the restaurant and everything else. You can find a better place to be in Malibu
