Great view; parking provided; food okay; service dog excellent

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... read more

We've been regulars here for years and it's better than ever. Can't beat the beach view. The food is very good and the bar is one of the more hopping in north Malibu.

Service was exceptional as was the view; food was just average. Don't waste money on the live Maine lobster - definitely had better elsewhere

I absolutely love this restaurant. It's one of me and my husbands favorite places to go for w romantic dinner. It is pricey, so it isn't necessarily a restaurant we go to unless it's a special occasion. Breathtaking views, directly across from Zumba beach, Delicious food... Definitely a must go!

From the outside the restaurant looks like a mom-and-pop's diner, but once inside realized it was more upper-class dining. We had been walking the beach and jeans and sweatshirts, so we were definitely underdressed but they still gave us a table. Since it was a Monday, and late afternoon we were able to have a window seat. The restaurant is... More

I run a local tour company and the Sunset is my go to place 3X a week! . Not fancy, great food, good prices, right on the beach with dolphin & whale watching & after lunch walks to the sand & sea. The food is good & the location cannot be beat anywhere in LA.

The Sunset had a lot going for it-great water views, amazing fish tacos, casual and a fun ambience. We were taken there by a local, which is always a good sign. Though we were kind of eating on the run, this is a relaxing and casual restaurant (and bar) experience3. If you want a quieter experience however, don't sit in... More

The food was terrific, the service excellent and the view of the ocean was really quite nice! I will go back for lunch sometime in the future.

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.
