Seafood on a terrasse

Neptune's Net is a cult eatery right on the highway. Good self-service seafood, in the ocean breeze on the sunny terrasse.

Was brought here by a friend staying at the same Camarillo hotel that I was! OMG!! Thank You so much Caitlyn, you are the best. Love this place. Sitting outside sipping a cool one watching the whales swim by, and then the food was ready. So delicious in an old school food way. Great burger, onion rings, and corn on... More

Try the clam chowder. The prawns/shrimp/lobster are succulent and juicy, served simply with a side of lemon and butter, but try with their sauces. The view is amazing, at about 3/4pm you see the sun go down across the ocean. And you cn watch the surfers/kite surfers. Huge quest on a weekend, so be warned

This is a biker hangout that is also friendly to adventurous locals and families. Assembly line seafood...not bad but nothing special. Shared tables and really loud sound level because of the idling bikes out front. Its a scene and the view is amazing.

They have great food here you get to pick your own drink like you are at a mini mart and order your food which is a million times better than a minimarts food. You have to show up on the right day so that you miss the bikers who go there or you will be left with no parking or... More

It is a fun place to eat while driving on Pacific Coast Highway, especially if you enjoy American style huge fried dishes. We got Seafood Platter, it was very tasty and more than enough for two persons. The place is fun, itself, being a stop for motor bikers. The only problem is that the restrooms are one of the worst...

Been here a couple of times now on our Malibu trips. Food is pretty good, the atmosphere is fun, and the views great. The place can get pretty lousy with bikers, so be aware of that sort of thing bothers you. The place also attracts Malibu yuppies and surfers, so you end up with an interesting and diverse crowd. If... More

I have been going here for over twenty years now. This place is still a favorite of mine. You must try the fried squid, fish and fries. The meal is do good. And they also have a very nice amount of frosty beverages to choose from.

The 3 of us visited last night for dinner. A bit of a nice hole in wall with good food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The man at the register answered all my many questions with a smile (genuine). There's a restaurant side with mostly fried food, and a seafood side with steamed seafood. And you pick out... More

This is must stop on the Pacific Coast Highway. It is on the Malibu/Ventura line so if you are coming up the coast from the south it is still 25 miles from the entrance to Malibu. The food was surprisingly good, seeing that it was a 'shack'. The crab cakes were as good as I have had at a similar... More
