A local favorite; there are not many in misanthropic Malibu. Choice of wide seating, warm greetings (you dont have to be a celeb, but it helps) . Greek good of course dominates, as well it should. Very good. Consistent, Authentic . Reasonably priced. Tony is on top of his game, and no doubt would get on a table to dance,... More

We literally had 30 mins to order and eat before heading to the airport so pressure on! Explained our situation and were promptly seated, baby accommodated and menus delivered. Ordered hummus, tzatziki, pittas, dolmades and spanakopita. Food was delicious - pittas warm, light and not stodgy, hummus and other dips full flavoured and had good texture, spanakopita had good balance... More

what a great find. Delicious hummus with house-made warm pita bread. Excellent flavor on both. The California greek salad with chicken was almost too pretty to eat. Almost. It was delicious! Kudos to the chef. The flavor was so light and fresh and there was the perfect amount of goat cheese,walnuts, avocado, and sundries tomatoes. I will return to Tony's... More

Scrumptious big fresh salads. Lovely humus and other dips. Atmospheric surroundings with plants and tile. Kindly service. Many locals include Tony's on their weekly outing list. Just very nice and friendly.

Take-out from Taverna Tony provided me with a brand-new culinary treat. Having never had the aforenamed dish it was a delicious surprise. All the traditional Greek dishes were good but the taramosalata was a true standout.

Be ready you gonna have a horrible experience unless you are regular here. First of all, Maitre d' offered us not so great table close to cashier/finished dishes counter although there were some better spaces opened. We asked her to alter one. She did so, but not politely but in very nasty way. Then our server, Nansia. Absolutely unwelcoming with... More

We came here for lunch and unfortunately ordered too much, i'm guessing this is easy to do here as everything looks great! We had the tzatsiki, which was excellent as well as the taramasalata mixed with avocado which seemed to be the special for the day, this was AMAZING and i would return just for that dip. Saganaki was good... More

How does this Taverna Tony Restaurant has 83% of people recommending it? Now, that is a mystery to me. And kinda scary. I trust TripAdvisor reviewers more than any other site but now I am starting to have my doubts. In short... - The menu is not THAT Greek - Unless you have never been to Greece and you have... More
