Their chowder is amazing, all the rest was good too, but what surprised me most was the freshness and promptness of their service... It was wonderful. Eating outside with your feet on the sand... We could hear the waves from our seats. It was an incredible unforgettable night.

Not so hidden as its well sign posted along the PCH, but with a lot of research into the area this still wasn't put on our radar until we passed it one day. We decided to pop in on the way past to see if breakfast was available - what we found was a restaurant right on the beach. If... More

Cheap to park if using the bar/restaurant. We had lunch here, very nice and not too expensive. Loos available if just using the beach. The restaurant has chairs on the beach to sit on and its lovely to sit outside and eat as their outside area is on the sand.

On a road trip from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara and stopped for lunch midweek. We were lucky to get a table, probably best to reserve. The beach is so pretty with lots of sun beds but we didn't stop long enough. We had fantastic salads on a hot day. There were two girls celebrating ones birthday. The waiter brought... More

This was the reason for the trip. Being a life long fan of James Garner and the Rockford Files we had to see this place. Very fun to stand where it all happened. The cove was packed with people, food was great Lobster Tacos were great. Walking around and people watching was part of the fun and looking at all... More

Great beach location, very busy spot. Food is HUGE, plan on sharing. Service was slow (maybe just intended to be laid back). And over priced. Also had to pay for parking to eat there.

There was absolutely no-one besides us when we had a morning walk along the beach on one foggy but beautiful day in late June. Great walk, and then a breakfast at the Beach cafe. Pricy parking if you don't eat, only 6 dollars if you do - at least when we visited.

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
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.
