Beautiful setting right on the beach. Food was pricey and not great. Had a combination platter with calamari, fish, ribs and shrimp. Ribs were terrible, the rest just ok. Waiter was preoccupied with waiting on girls in their swimsuits, so didn't pay much attention to us. We were disappointed overall. We waited about 30 minutes for a table and were... More

Was at this restaurant yesterday. Got there around 4pm. Told it would be approx. 35 minutes to an hour wait. Only waited approx. 25 minutes which was fantastic. The place was jammed packed. Got seated indoors. The clam chowder was very good but rest of food, not so much. I ordered a baked potato which was brought to me with... More

Had lunch this was the worse Paella I have eaten, no seasonings they advertise chicken breast there were chicken wing parts two slices of sausage they claim 8 oz, the shrimp was not cooked? Clam & mussel shells no meat it wasn't in the pan they can't all come out of the shell. Do not waste your $49. The server... More

I rode there with a few biker buddies. They made each bike get a voucher for parking. Then we go in to park and they had two city cop cars and cops, who did nothing but stand and watch people. I had a bright yellow Harley with flames on it. So right away, the one cop came over to tell... More

The best thing about this place is the location. they have a patio where the tables are in the sand right on the ocean! They do have heat lamps by each table for when its chillier outside when the sun goes down. They serve cute cocktails out of carved out pineapples and in cute cups. The is kind of lack... More

Do not go here. No Love for Paradise Cove Despicable show of greed and class segregation. Getting a presumably minimum wage worker to sit in a box keeping out other minimum wage workers and poor people by charging $20 per person to walk on less than half a mile of tarmac to access a public beach is beyond uncool. These... More

Paradise Cove is one of those Touristy Places that everyone, who thinks they know Malibu, says to go to. It is expensive, pay for parking and very slow service. The food in marginal. The beach is OK but with so many people why would you go there for that. There are many other nice beaches. It's sad but every place... More
