Lovely food and great service by Nikos

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

Thought, after reading the many positive reviews, that this Greek restaurant might be worth a visit. Our server was pleasant, but some of the other servers that were assisting were gruff and heavy handed...so was the food! Very heavy with no hint of fresh bright flavors and no attention to plating - food was heaped on in a very sloppy... More

We dined "family style" on a Friday afternoon after my daughter graduated from law school and we were treated like royalty. The 5 course meal included humus, tzatziki, salad, stuffed grape leaves, meatballs, orzo, grilled kabobs, lamb and so much more! It was the best Greek food we've ever had the pita bread will melt in your mouth -- so... More

We loved everything about Taverna Tony, it felt like they had known us for years. They were so friendly, the food was amazing. It was so great we went back 3 times in one week!

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 evening. I love it... 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!
