To relax and enjoy the day Just have a beer into the sunset. Is the place to go. Lots of good restaurants in the area. If you love seafood.

The upstairs view is to die for! We went for a wedding reception and although the food was part of the reception it was very good. I had grilled shrimp with asparagus and mashed potatoes. All cooked well with very good taste. Nice green salad with beets was the starter. They do have a lower bar and lounge area and... More

The food exceeded our expectations. We loved the ahi tuna tower and the special shrimp pasta with spinach. The beet salad with goat cheese was extremely refreshing. Not only is the food great, the wait staff is extremely attentive and the sunset is magnificent.

Get a table upstairs for the best view and less noise. The crab claw appetizer is delish, as is the seafood stew. Would have never seen this amazing beach if I had not ventured out to this restaurant.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a lunch and dinner at The Sunset while we were visiting Malibu. Since the restaurant didn't look like much from the outside, we almost passed it by assuming it was just cheesy tourist fare (even though we were tourists ourselves). We were very glad we popped in for lunch on our last day and... More

Went to the Sunset to grab a drink and some appetizers during happy hour. We had great service in the bar and the macaroni and cheese is to die for. I highly recommend the Sunset.

Amazing seafood risotto! I recommend! The service is also really good, and if you seat by the window you can even smell the sea breeze! Loved it!

As it was my wife's birthday, I thought it would be nice to have a brunch at The Sunset. We are locals and have eaten there many times. The restaurant was not full and we were seated at 11:15. By 11:30 no one had taken our order or asked if we wanted a drink. In fact, the waiter took orders... More

If you want casual, enjoy a wonderful relaxing end of the beach day cuisine. If you are looking for some elegance and romance, make a reservation in the upstairs dining room. An elevator takes you to a quiet, elegant and romantic setting. This restaurant has a nice cross section of appetizers and entrees. The fish and meat dishes have a... More

A must when in Malibu, the food is always very good, and the views of the ocean are beautiful and you may get to see dolphins swimming past while you are having dinner, but be warned it can be very noisy as it's such a popular restaurant with tourists and locals so I would suggest you book and you may...
