The spectacular oceanfront location on the Pacific Coast Highway offers over 300 feet of romantic oceanfront dining and memorabilia from both Hawaii and California surfing history. The Barefoot Bar, looking south into the lights of Santa Monica, is a great spot for drinks and casual food with friends.

“The place where you can meet with a wheal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We saw a see dog while we were drinking the cocktails. Suddenly a wheal danced on the view of the restaurant that was really a surprise to me and my wife in LA. The menu was excellent and dessert contains ice cream was wonderful.

“Dolphins and seals, oh my”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

I drove down the coast during a work trip, to see the ocean, etc. In Malibu, I asked for the best fish tacos on my TripAdvisor mobile app and it directed me here.
I was a little unhappy that I had to pay $5 valet (On a Thursday early evening).
I was directed to the bar area which included an outdoor area. I had a lava flow (it was okay), fish tacos, and a huge slice of key lime pie. I chose the fish tacos to be "cajun grilled" which did not seem to make them at all spicy. They were good though. I had to ask for limes (which is odd because all other places seem to give you limes to spray on fish tacos).

The highlight, however, was the view. We had a pod of dolphins swim by and then one lonely seal. It was very neat. And just sitting there with the waves coming in was nice. I would be happy to return.
