Yummi!

Stumbled upon Tony's by accident, and glad we did. Had a very good moussaka and an equally good Greek peasant salad - the portions are huge, btw. Service was prompt and friendly. A special mention of the very pleasant patio section of the restaurant, all encased in lush greenery. Definitely a... read more

This is the supposedly 'cool hip' place to eat Greek food with the movie stars, et. al. but really it is way overpriced kind of ripoff that often goes unquestioned. We had an evening birthday celebration for 15 that they crammed into seating for 8. Uncomfortable with poor service like they expected us to just sit there until they decided... More

Taverna Tony is a really fun and popular dining establishment in Malibu. You could be seated next to a tourist from Nebraska or one of the Kardashian's...... The food is expertly prepared and delicious, but be seriously hungry when you enter the doors: The servings are really huge and I was often unable to finish my meal. If you are... More

Admittedly not connoisseur of Greek food, but everyone loved what they had ordered. Will definitely go back when in town again and recommend to friends. Great service, waiters were knowledgeable about the menu and explained with ease. Loved the alfresco dinning, nice quite view, it didn’t make you feel like you were in a busy tourist restaurant.

What's not to like about Taverna Tony? I ate there alone on a classic Southern California evening. Cloudless sky, no humidity, and the temperature hovering near 80, with a slight sea breeze. I chose the outside terrace and had a glass of the waiter-recommended Greek white, a California salad (fresh lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes, avacado, peppers, spring onions, walnuts and the... More

A really excellent Greek restaurant in the heart of Malibu. A bit pricey but the portions are enormous!!! Delicious food, succulent lamb. Ouzo as an apperitif and great Greek wine. If you see the waiters faffing around it's because a star has arrived.

Having dinner at taverna Tony was a great experience. The food was good. Although I wouldn't recommend the lasagne. We were treated very friendly by Nikos. If you love a big meal, you'll definitely enjoy eating at this restaurant.

We are from the UK but in California on holiday. We were really looking forward to Taverna Tony's as we had heard good things about it but we were really disappointed. My husband is Greek so we know what Greek food should be like but what we were served was far from what we were expecting. The calamari was overcooked... More
