I like to take visitors to the best of the best. That's why I choose Paradise Cove. It has an amazing rate for validated parking (between $6 and $8 I believe, depending on the season/day) and has superb food and beach access. Choose fish tacos and then go out on the beach and private pier after your scrumptious meal. Parking... More

Beautiful 'cozy feeling' type beach with seagulls and an historic- type restaurant with old fishing photos adorning the walls. The food and drinks are mediocre and not cheap but the setting is a lot of fun. You can eat outside right near the beach with your toes in the sand as you sip your cocktail and enjoy the sunshine. It's... More

Seen from PCH, Malibu beaches and the rows of beach houses with their 3rd world electric wiring may by disappointing for some. If you don’t get invited to one of the estates and still want to feel Malibu - come to Paradise Cove. It’s a restaurant, it’s fun in the sand - and taking a walk on the beach you... More

Complete tourist trap. Wife and I visited on a busy weekend and it was one of the worst experiences we've had. Exorbitant parking fees, extremely long wait to eat, miniature pier is closed, crowded beach, distasteful people.. with so many other nice options I would never go here again.

The food was overpriced. Jumbo shrimp was only in a jumbo sized glass. The shrimp were tiny and guacamole and chips were $16, which was again, mediocre at best. The parking situation is ridiculous.. $40 to park unless you eat. Fun to do once but won't be back.

This isby far thebest beach in town. My kids love this place. They prefer coming here every year than going to the Caribbean, Mexico, or Hawaii.

Great setting, right on the beach. But food is just average, a little touristic to me. We went for a night and they had all you can eat oysters. In fact the server said they are out of fresh oysters and don't serve any steamed. But they have fried. We ordered fried oysters, but taste just average. Side dishes were... More

On a drive through Malibu and heard of this place so we had to stop. Outside seating is covered so the sun is not too intense. Beautiful views of the beach, your feet are actually in the sand as you eat. Our server was Ashley and she was great. She suggested a few items and we had the 3 taco... More

Loved the location of this large touristy restaurant and probably best for a quick drink and a plate to share. However, had dinner here and, although the meals are huge, we weren't loving the taste. We ordered the calamari - sorry to say it didn't seem very fresh as it was very chewy. The fries that came with them were... More
