We lucked into this joint. Very casual and $$$. Really great food. It's got a nicely different menu. Lots of fish and pasta dishes to savor. I saw this burger with caramelized maple onion jelly. Had to try it. Oh man, it was good. There is a couple of different patios to choose from and a bar or dinning room.

The breakfast, the friendly service from Nick and Eduardo, and the view overlooking Zuma Beach make this a premier spot. There is indoor and outdoor seating as well as a lovely bar. The best Bloody Mary I have had was made fresh with their own blend, while the veggie scramble and grilled potaoes were hot and flavorful. The fruit plate... More

Asked them to make a black Russian for me even though it wasn't on the menu. Also, the Greek pizza is to die for. Definitely try the wood fire pizzas here.

this place is a hidden gem, the food is absolutely amazing. Had my daughters wedding reception near the pool area it was like something from a Hollywood movie and there was so much delicious food. The view was great of the beech and nothing was ever too much to ask.

Kristy's is one of the better restaurants in Malibu. They have a quaint bar with great martinis and a decent wine list but the food is much better than the wine list so I usually bring my own. Yes there is a corkage fee, but brining a good bottle is worth the experience. I think over the years, i've had... More

We stayed in the hotel next door to Kirsy's so we thought eating there would be nice. Reserved our table earlier in the day but still waited over 30 minutes to be seated. It was a nice evening so we didn't mind waiting outside, shame there wasn't anywhere to sit whilst being kept waiting. We had to stand by the... More

The staff makes you feel right at home the minute you arrive. Their food is presented with an appeal to the eyes and stomach. It is deliciously prepared and served with your satisfaction being their top priority. Prices are comparable to other restuarants in the area, but your appreciation and enjoyment of the meal makes it priceless. Perfect for a... More

Attended a luncheon after a Pepperdine grad ceremony at this location and felt sorry for those who had planned it as the owner/manager (not quite sure as he never introduced himself) was blustering around acting angry that we were there & how they weren't ready for us yet & had to set up more tables, etc. He said we could...

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
