Great lunch after hiking in Malibu. Lots of great food options - though I especially enjoy the fish tacos. Good wine selection. The star is the view - we almost always see dolphins and seals. Sometimes we've also seen whales.

A great place to watch the sunset. Had a late lunch there so we were able to see a wonderful sunset. It is fast setting there so be quick to grab your camera. With this being said the atmosphere was great. Food was good, a little on the expensive side.

After spending a long time researching where to celebrate my 30th birthday in Malibu, I settled on The Sunset and couldn't be happier with the decision. We spent about an hour at the bar eating ceviche, drinking, and watching the sun go down. It was a Thursday night and the place was pretty full - with their great happy hour... More

Has such a great experience there with the family. Arrived and was immediately greated and seated. Services were a bit slow but they were pretty busy at noon on a Sunday. Great food, gorgeous view of the ocean and lovely ambiance. Will definitely return!

The Sunset Restaurant in Malibu is a local hideaway replete with ocean view and a solid menu. You can get a great grass fed hamburger, mac and cheese, and a lot of appetizers that could be eaten as a light dinner including pulled pork sliders, fish tacos, spaghetti bolognese split with a friend (one of my favorites) and various flatbreads....

Location, location, location! Right across from Zuma Beach. The food is really good, reasonably priced. Happy Hour is pretty cool there too. It's ideal for sunsets and on occasion, you may even catch a wedding outside the window taking place on the beach, Sunset Style!

Location is perfect, food is really good, no complaints on service. Today I had the clam chowder, delicious. And spaghetti with lobster, as well really good. It could have been a max score, but the intestine/dirt of the lobster was not removed. I find this not really acceptable, a lack of attention to details that is necessary in nice places... More

We were in Malibu last year for a triathlon that takes place on Zuma Beach and found this great restaurant. We returned again for the race and and came back for a fantastic lunch. We ate in the bar area, which has comfortable couches overlooking the ocean. The food was great - seafood was fresh,with generous portions, and excellent service.

The Sunset is a Malibu classic. During the week, you will find locals and of course summer time weekends are packed. The location is beautiful and generally the food is good.

This was the place I was imagining and found it! A beach view and relaxing great food. It is gourmet type food with beautiful presentation and the price goes with it but not overly so. The service was perfect. It didn't get 5 for the price. I will definitely b is it again. Does have happy hour price too.
