Good food - pleasant setting

Visited this place with my Brother - the foodie - and his reaction, based on a wonderful lamb dish, was very positive. I love steamed fish, kind of a rarity, and Kristy's had two options. The one I selected was prepared and presented perfectly. The view is nice, albeit through dirty windows, and... read more

Food And staff are just great ! Breakfast was just perfect and a lot of attention was given to our well being. A little hard to find but worth the drive. Prices are fine.

Valet attendant was a Neanderthal and physically threatened me when I tried to leave the parking lot, because I offended his wife.

This restaurant is next door to Malibu Country Inn, the food is just less than average and way over priced.

Perched on the cliff above Zuma Beach, a wonderful spot for a lunch or dinner.. The food is Excellent a little pricey though but the service and friendly staff made for an enjoyable lunch. The patio is dog friendly and any restaurant that offers my dogs water of their own get my reviews. Well done! We will return.

We were exploring all the mountain roads between the San Fernando Valley and the Pacific Coast Hwy and consulted trip advisor for a restaurant in Malibu, choosing Kristy's. What a great choice! Located near Zuma Beach, perched on a hillside, with a bit of a view of the ocean and lovely gardens leading to the entrance, Kristy's is a romantic... More

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

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.
