We were in LA to do a PCH trip and we asked the fellow at the car rental to recommend a good place to eat on the way to San Luis Obispo, and he sent us here. It was a nice day and there was only parking available on the highway, but they had a shuttle to take us down... More

Everything at the Cabana was going great; from the moment we got there the manager who welcomed me was very friendly and had great manners. Up until I went to the bar to ask for three cups of hot water to take back to my friends to make our own instant coffee. They could only give me one cup of... More

A great find for sure! Fish tacos were amazing. Tilapia was very well done and flavor mixed very well with the other ingredients. Good variety of drinks. Very nice beachfront atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.

What a great find. This was the perfect place to take my sister for lunch after arriving at LAX . I picked her up from the airport and we drove to Paradise cove for lunch. It was a perfect sunny October day midweek. We sat on the patio with sand in our feet. Felt like vacation. Food was wonderful and... More

Stopped in with no reservation on a day driving through Malibu. Seated in about 15 minutes at an outside table. Kicked off our shoes and relaxed with our feet in the sand. Cocktails looked awesome but I was driving (just me and the kiddies) so our friendly waiter made my sprite complimentary as I couldn't try a fun cocktail. Had... More

We were early in the area for our dinner reservations so we chose Paradise Cove for a drink during sunset. Without reservations, we asked to sit outside. We were placed in a boxed in area placed on the sand to the north. There was a sign explaining that only unopened beverages could be taken out on the beach, where there... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Sunday around 11:30. Good time to come because an hour later it was PACKED! We weren't able to get a table outside which looked like a perfect place to have a meal. Food decent (i had the salad bar, but it did seem a bit overpriced at $21) You're definitely paying for the location... More

We drove down into the cove not really knowing the parking situation was so expensive, however the beach access was worth every penny to take my family for the classic California beach day! We spent a ton on lunch, but worth the splurge to have a great day while visiting CA!

The B-B-Q Onion Burger = cooked rare; is probably the best burger you can find, if you didn't know it one would think it was Kobe beef. Make sure to order with half fries and half cold slaw!!

This dump (although on the beach in paradise) serves some of the worst slop in the civilized world. IMHO, it is virtually inedible, even with a healthy coating of sand. And yet it somehow draws insane weekend crowds, that further degrade what should be a peaceful beachfront experience experience with traffic and parking nightmares and exorbitant parking charges that should...
