Staying in Malibu with a friend and we stopped in here one evening for our seafood fix. It was my first visit here and I ordered a basket of fried shrimp, fish, calamari and scallops. The shrimp were my absolute favorite in the basket, followed by the calamari and then the fish. The scallops were drippy when you bit into... More

Without even venturing in the restaurant itself I had a great time here! Our order was called in and while waiting a very short time at such a busy place I got to hear about the storied Malibu RV Park just up the hill and enjoy yet more beautiful beach views. We took our food a bit further up PCH... More

We stopped at Malibu Seafood on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area. It was awesome. I had the crab salad, which had the freshest crab meat I have ever tasted. My husband had the grilled scallops, which he said were amazing too. Loved the outside tables that overlook the ocean and casual atmosphere. It took about... More

Had the 1-piece fish and chips with coleslaw. The fish and tarter sauce were very good (light, tasty batter) though the fish stick on steroids portion was small. The chips were nothing special. Good coleslaw and a generous portion. Across the highway from the ocean. Pagers alert to when your food is ready. Parking is a challenge. Washroom on site... More

Went to this restaurant from all the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. The seafood was average, the parking was awful and it was hard to get a seat at a picnic table. Not worth the aggravation - find another place with sufficient parking and better food.

We ate here twice during a recent trip to Southern California. Both times were great and their menu is simple. Fresh fish and your choice of sides gives great options. Super casual; you order your food, pick it up when ready, and then enjoy while sitting outside. We saw many people bringing their own tablecloths and wine.

This spot came recommended and did not disappoint! The food was excellent, fresh, and the service was friendly. The view from the cafe is terrific. The food is fairly expensive for casual grub, but worth it. A definite MUST visit when in the Malibu area.
