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

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.

Great location , great company , overpriced mediocre food. I've only been here at night but had other stuff to do in Malibu and decided to brunch here. Nothing much else to say. Food wasn't great, lamb had zero flavor, Greek salad was a Greek salad pita was fine dipping sauce was good. Dessert was fantastic. Cappuccino was awful! I... More

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
