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

We came into Malibu with high expectations given many of the reviews of the restaurant at this hotel. The views were terrific, but that is where the quality started and stopped. Despite having a reservation and the restaurant calling me the day before to re confirm our 11:15 am reservation, we arrive don time to a relatively empty restaurant and... More

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

An amazing terrace just above the beach, being part of a rather unattractive hotel. Food very nice, although the menu could live with some more variety. Come here for a nice lunch enjoying the ocean.

We stopped here for breakfast on our drive from Los Angeles to Cambria. Ended up driving past so keep your eyes peeled when you know you'll be getting near. We turned up without a booking on a Saturday morning around 9.30am and got given a great table right by the edge, waves crashing under us, as we enjoyed a truly... More

We stopped here after spending some time on Zuma Beach enjoying the waves crashing on the beach. Great food and awesome views of the ocean from here. Not very cheap but very nice there.

Loved the view and ambiance so ate there both nights we stayed at the Malibu Inn. Food and service were good but not great. Price was reasonable.Would certainly go back the next we are in the area.
