Authentic Taverna Tony

So nice to see that Tony is still presiding over his establishment for so many years. I've been going there since he opened. If you like Greek food, this is the real deal and just about anything you order is prepared perfectly. The atmosphere is inviting with a nice fire going on a cool day or... read more

Taverna Tony, located in what is best described as downtown Malibu, as the City is really a village! Sit outside if you wish, but I love eating dinner inside here in the "winter" (if one exists in Malibu) because of the live music and warm fireplace. The Greek food is authentic, with large portions good for sharing with a loved... More

a consistently good Greek restaurant, good service, prices a little high but worth it (good quality and portion sizes). you may even see a local celebrity or two while you are there.

Lunch was great, the house dip for bread was out of this world good, and Nick, our waiter, was right out of central casting for the perfect server in an upscale Greek restaurant. Definitely a place we will return to when in Malibu. Nice experience for the whole family including two picky young diners!

I wandered into Taverna Tony after a day of shopping in Malibu. I was alone and the staff made me feel very welcome. Tony, the owner, was very hospitable and made my dinner very enjoyable. I had hummus (the best I ever had) and the chicken souvlaki. Everything was outstanding, including the service and atmosphere. I can't wait for my... More

Whenever we go to LA, we always stop at Taverna Tony's and we always eat out in the very well appointed courtyard. The food has always been great. Do yourself a favor and order the saginaki and a bottle of retsina!

I have been coming here for years, and of all the great restaurants in Malibu, this one is my favorite. I literally feel like I am in Greece, its that charming. The grilled octopus is my favorite and the greek salad is always a good choice as well. I know a lot of people, especially on vacation opt for a... More

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
