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

Nice to have a meal on a beautiful beach with feet in the sand but tables outside are very close together and food was expensive and mediocre at best. In addition, they charge to park your own car and even though they give you a discount if you eat there parking is expensive.

During our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, we stopped at every opportunity. So naturally, "Paradise Cove" sounded like the perfect stop. Until we noticed the parking fees. Ouch! Extremely expensive unless you plan in advance to eat there (which we didn't). So plan a meal there or be prepared to pay an arm and a leg to park!

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.

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
