Went here for a birthday dinner. Our first time at this restaurant. We sat outside on the patio. View was fantastic as we watched the sunset. Staff was friendly and service was great. Our food and the wine were delicious. No complaints at all

Went there early Sunday morning; we were the first customers. So we had the place to ourselves from start to finish. Food is great; and the serving is huge. I can see why parking can be tricky during peak hours. There is a lovely garden leading to the restaurant where certain tables have a nice view of the beach. If... More

Great food but: We had to send the steak back because it wasn't medium rare We were over-charged for drinks (Bloody Marys) and when we asked about it, 'the menu is out of date' Website doesn't mention valet mandatory parking on weekends Four people (one round of drinks, brunch, valet parking, tip) : $200. Good thing the view is good.

Came to Malibu and stopped by this restaurant. It sits up on a little bluff that gives u a view of some of Malibu beach. We arrived early for breakfast. The food was good, we had the omelet special with potatoes which was good, nice touch is the freshly baked muffin surrounded by fresh cut fruit.

Try the Kristys Burger , it's delicious ! Has a view of Zuma and the PCH. Nice people work there. Parking is ok. Close to Zuma Beach and the surf action.

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
