I've been going to the Paradise Cove restaurant for years. It used to be good, but eventually the food quality decide so much I decided not ever to set my foot there again. The view can only make up for so much... Well, I was convinced to try it again and found the food to be bearable. Not great but... More

I love this place, it's not super classy but the beach itself reminds me of Cornwall (just in the US with occasional sealions and dolphins). The food couldn't be described as healthy, but it's all great fun and that beach is ideal to walk it off on.

Stopped by on our visit thru Malibu, skip paying the $40 parking and just walk down the hill. Calvin Harris was shooting a music video with GiGi Hadid, they were cordial. Nice beach to hang out for an afternoon of fun.

Fun, fun and fun. Fantastic place for a bite to eat right on the ocean. Enjoyed the seafood tier and guacamole and the virgin pina colada's are as delicious as the view. Get a booth and kick back. It appears the bloody marys are a hit during the brunch hour.

I enjoy coming to Paradise Cove. This time we came with a large group to eat and watch the sunset. We made reservations to sit outdoor so we can watch the beautiful sunset. Even with a reservation, we had to wait about 45 minutes to get a table. But waiting there is a treat! We sat on the beach on... More

I know we've never met, but please trust my review. We have been coming to Paradise Cove since around 2008. This was the best Father's Day I have ever had due to Paradise Cove's superior service. Made reservations for 11:30 for one of the busiest days of the year. When we arrive at 11:00, the signs said "LOT FULL" and... More

It was a perfect little secret spot. Tucked in paradise cove, with cliffs blocking the wind, is a sweet restaurant with and awesome view . Food was a tad pricey but totally worth it. Portions are huge!! So definitely share!!! There's a very good energy in paradise cove, a young energy yet still welcoming to families.

I am not sure that I would recommend a special trip to this restaurant if all you are looking for is food. Parking is terrible. It is located next to a trailer park that lots of movie stars like to buy and hang out in and pretend they are "regular" people. (Many trailers are worth more than $1 million!) But... More

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.
