Old Malibu

I have been going here for over 25 years. It is consistently excellent. Always fresh. Love the casual vibe. The best is in the winter when the line is not so long.

An hour north of our West Hollywood Apt, just off the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu is this great casual lunch cafe with ample outdoor seating with ocean views and best of all Great Food! Do not pass up on the fish tacos! They are delicious! If you have any room left for dessert, try the key lime cawabunga ice... More

After the reviews and a local Surf Shop Owner recommended it we decided to try it even though I wasn't thrilled about no inside seating. Small little shack when you walk in passing by all this fresh seafood looked like the place to be, really busy too. The Ahi Tuna Burger and Fries (from Costco) repeated on us all night.... More

If you don't mind waiting in long long lines for this delicious food then you will be happy. I just can't. But the fish is as fresh as can be and the service and venue pretty special. Right across from the ocean. I don't like the pch so close nor the smell of fried food right under my nose. Hence... More

Any time I get out to Malibu this is my go to place for food. Wonderful menu of fresh fish prepared in oh so many delicious ways. Outdoor seating to enjoy the view of the Pacific Ocean! Great little fish market as well. A not so well kept secret!

The restaurant is at such a place that even moderate food would get it a five star rating because of the view. The food is actually good though.

Seriously wish we could've come here and second time on our visit! The tuna burger was amazing. We stopped by on our drive back to Hollywood for a quick lunch. For first-timers, go inside to place your order. They'll give you a buzzer. When it goes off, pick up your food at the side window. You will not be disappointed!

Visited just before closing on a Friday night and didn't have to queue for long. The fish and chips were delicious. Can't comment on the view as it was dark and didn't realise until we got there that if you wanted beer or wine you would need to provide your own. No problem but we should have read Tripadvisor before... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and are never disappointed. Parking is limited, food is good. Tables outside at several levels. We prefer the top level for better viewing the coastline. It is always busy, fish is fresh. It also has a fresh fish market if you want to take some home. Today we had the fish and... More

Fun place for fresh seafood. Only outdoor eating available and parking is difficult. Give it a try on a nice day
