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

This is about as authentic Greek as you're gonna get in Southern California. Its a nice, rustic, European, Greek spot that has delicious food. Its fun to walk around the shopping area after dinner or lunch and soak in the Malibu Beach vibe.

Food was delicious, we had the sampler and absolutely everything was perfect. Service was also pretty good and ambiance was relaxed. Would definitely go back there when in California.

I started coming here when they first opened in '94 I think and still love it. I've had a great time every visit. It's not cheap but it has good food and great atmosphere. I always feel like I'm on vacation in the Mediterranean. There is just something about this place that makes me happy. Two of my favorite things:... More

Taking a tip from other readers about portion sizes the four of us shared two entrees and a big salad along with destroying the free appetiser with yummy fresh bread. Worked out fine for a light dinner. Loved the moussaka & the roasted lamb. Ate on the patio, which is much quieter than the noisy interior. Brought our own bottle... More

I was looking forward to finding an authentic Greek Restaurant that had charbroiled Baby Octopus on the menu. I searched around and found Taverna Tony in Malibu and promptly ordered this dish to go. When I arrived at my destination I was shocked to find only 3 pieces of thick tentacles staring back at me. Definitely NOT baby octopus. I... More

I just went here for my birthday and EVERYTHING was amazing! Friendly, attentive (but not obtrusive) staff, prompt service and delicious food! I got the Sampler Platter for dinner because I couldn't decide and everything was outstanding. Tony the owner was on site personally greeting guests and asking if everything was all right. Beautiful drive up the coast to the... More

I am married to Greek and have Greek friends and none of the are willing to return here. There are a few items that aren't too bad but most of what is served is not worth the calories. My advice "stay away".
