Description: Cafe M is the most exciting and wildly romantic dining destination in the Malibu Hills. Located at the Crest of Malibu, off Kanan Rd. and Mulholland Dr. lies a unique restaurant and lounge with a Nouveau Barbeque menu that made Calamigos Ranch famous 4 generations ago, and keeps it breathtaking today. Join them Thursday through Sunday from noon to midnight with an amazing al fresco lunch by their private lake, or join them for dinner on a candlelit patio overlooking the property, and stay for farm fresh cocktails under the stars with romantic lounge music, live jazz and blues under the stars!! As the only dining destination on the Malibu Wine trail, come see what Malibu Vines can offer with the finest wine selections, and even tastings right at the restaurant. Bring a special someone, family, or just some friends and lounge on private cabanas, fluffy day beds, or get a private raft to sail the lake on. There truly is nothing quite like an evening at M Cafe.

Most fun you can have at a restaurant! Games, sports, pets, shopping, wine tasting and fabulous food! Excellent service too. Where else can you cook your own somemore's at the table?

The Malibu Café is a MUST! An incredible atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. The food was ok, nothing to rave about, but I would definitely go back for drinks and appetizers. Go with friends because there are lawn games and fire pits to keep you entertained. Because there kitchen is farther away from the seating, don't expect quick service. The staff... More

The Malibu Cafe is located on the Calamigos Ranch property and is awesome! Went early for lunch as it was hot up in the mountains. The outdoor area is adorable with picnic tables scattered around, we ate near a waterfall. There are also tables on the deck with misters too keep you cool. We enjoyed our brunch and had read...

I have been here many times over the years and have watched its transformation. My sisters and I went here for lunch last Friday and were delighted with the changes that have been made to... More

We arrived at this stunning little hidden hideaway nestled in the Malibu mountains right in the middle of wine country. I have been to a tasting next door to this place a few times, but never knew it was there. It’s beautiful. Our service was impeccable, Jake was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about local wines as well. Our... More

Had an 11:30 AM reservation for brunch on Sunday. It was a beautiful day... blue skies, perfect temps. Apparently, everyone in LA decided to show up here for brunch. It was a mob scene at the check in desk, and of course, they had NO RECORD of our reservation. After a fair amount of confusion, we were finally led to... More

This place has a cool factor about it for sure. And you can tell they cater towards larger parties and special events. My husband and I enjoyed a little dinner here while visiting Malibu. It was a cold night and in much need of a good heater, we ordered our food and then walked around a bit to explore the... More
