Perfect breakfast

We came here on an early Saturday morning and had the most soothing experience. The patio provides a picture postcard scenic view of Malibu pier and the ocean. The food was great (they have a smoothie menu for breakfast, too) and the service was attentive and professional. Prices are reasonable for... read more

It's one of the few restaurant and hotels on Malibu beach. It has a small, but very special terrace above the water and a fine indoor seating area. Colours are special with the passing of hours. It's upscale and raffinated, with kind service. One of a kind, comparable for typology to the Domina of Portofino, Italy. And yet, it offers... More

We went to Easter Brunch- Pre fix menu- 4 courses. The food was excellent with a good variety of choices. Two of us are GF and we had no trouble choosing our meal. It included champagne which was nice. Overall it was a good experience but I probably wont go back as I didn't feel the experience matched the price... More

Question. Would you give a merchant a copy of the front/back of your credit card and Photo ID to hold a reservation for a $68 pre-fixe menu? If not, then don't include Malibu Beach Inn/Carbon Beach Club in your selection list for Holiday meal reservations in Malibu. I reserved on Open Table only to be contacted by the hotel to... More

A cozy little restaurant within a charming hotel, with old world charm and fantastic location and view. But not much else, service is slow, waiters are average, nice but not professional by any means, management is totally absent, and food is so up and down! Great place to have a drink but not much else. Calamari and salad are Ok... More

Came here for a special bday celebration at the recommendation of a friend who 'heard' it was good. I made reservations and 1 day prior they left a voice message asking me to reconfirm. I did. Arrived at about 11:20 for an 11:15 reservation. The host told me it would be a few minutes then went to the lobby to... More

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.
