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.

Called in to grab a drink and some ice cream from the dessert menu. Took an eternity for the bar staff to even acknowledge us. We asked one of the staff to take our order for ice cream, however we were told to wait for the other member of staff. They never showed up so eventually they took our order.... More

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.
