Lovely exciting place to be with great beach location and an interesting menu. Food was very disappointing. Fish tacos looked amazing and very large, but tasteless. Seafood linguini is made with curry, which wasn't disclosed on the menu and resulted in a mystery dish with little seafood. Drinks were great and service was good.

Separated from the sands og Malibu by about 30 feet of two two lane road, the view here is truly one-of-akind...and the service is spot on. And while the food is very good---a cut above god, certainly---,it doesn't rise to the level of great. But hey: the view, intrtesting wine list and the ambiance (discoiunting a raucous bar scene) are... More

This place is right on Zuma Beach and has a view to Point Dume on the north and Zuma on the South. Food is fantastic...my last lunch there was grilled Octopus. All seafood dishes I have had were wonderful...Great place to watch the sunset either from inside or outside the restaurant.

Once again we drove along the coastline and decided to visit Malibu Beach. We found this small restaurant by the beach just by accident. The food was great and it was really nice to sit there for a while and enjoy the sea breeze from the open windows. The waitor was a bit arrogant in our opinion and when looking... More

Its a place that you can bring the family but also great for adults only. Some of our local friends told us to give this spot a try. Its not in the heart of Malibu but worth adventuring to. Have to try the fresh oysters! A lot of times you will spot a celebrity but its definitely a place you... More

Go slow when approaching the restaurant as the parking is hidden on the side and it's a very busy corner. The food was good. I'm sure you pay the price for the excellent view of the Pacific Ocean! I had the lobster sandwich and it was dry. My husband had the spaghetti with meat sauce and it was a large... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
