Hey, dads...your only daughter is getting married on the beach in Malibu in a couple of hours and you want/need a scotch. And you realize you haven't eaten. Also, it would be a good idea to practice that speech - the one that will make your daughter tear-up - one more time. Kristy's is THE place! The bar is terrific...and... More

My wife and I stopped at Kristy's for lunch just before we hiked Solstice Canyon in Malibu. The restaurant's service was a little disappointing. The view from outside is beautiful. The restaurant is also very peaceful, and I enjoyed it very much. The food was pretty good, but not great. The prices are very reasonable, though.

Kristy's is a little gem of a restuarant overlooning Zuma Beach adjacent to the Malibu Country Inn. The staff is GREAT! Very friendly and accomodating. A fruit plate and a fresh baked muffin for a standard starter is a pleasant surprise. The view of the beach is perfect. Great value for the price.

This is a complete disappointment. It is a dismal, old and dirty feeling place. No atmosphere at all. Food is average at best - nothing special at all. Prices are high and its just not worth it. Service is poor and no one seems to care. There are so many incredible places to eat in Malibu, don't waste your time... More

I wanted to treat my husband to a nice birthday on the coast. We have been to most restaurants in Malibu, and we happenstance upon this hidden jewel with a casual atmosphere, but with a 5-star menu. Unbelievable menu! We ended up staying in the attached boutique cottages to plan our dinner at Kristy's. This place is a must for... More

We enjoyed everything we ate, but I wish there were more pizza choices. More entire choices. My kids had Caesar salads. Good, but I wish we didn't have to cut them. I had ahi, that was great. The best thing was coconut cake- to die for.

Two hours wasted on a beautiful Mother's Day seated at a noisy center table sipping water and waiting for my fifty two dollar steak to arrive! You have got to be kidding me! Limited "special" menu with a pathetic 4 leaf caesar salad for my son. "No substitutions" we were told when asked if he could have chicken added to... More

We went to Kristy's for our anniversary and they reserved the best table in the house for us. Everything about this restaurant was prefect. The view was beautiful. The staff and manager were beyond friendly and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely delicious! We got to watch the sunset while enjoying grouper that was caught that morning. The only thing I...
