We visited that restaurant with my friend. They said they normally shouldn't work on Monday but for some reason they did. The territory is cute, all that pets around and all is ok. But the menu is really tiny, nothing to choose. We asked what they recommend and it was burgers hmm. I asked for bread they didn't have any,... More

I found this magical place on Pinterest, printed out a picture of a bride and groom under a beautiful tree that had draping fairy lights and put it on my vision board, not knowing where it was exactly. Then when planning our Californian road trip, I noted it wasn't too far from where we were planning to go, so had... More

Went here with a couple of girlfriends for a wonderful outdoor meal. Such a campy and fun location. Had an almost summer camp for adults feel - but is a great place for all ages. The ribs were very tasty! We didn't have a reservation and had to wait a while, but enjoyed our wait by walking around the place... More

If you looking for outdoor place to relax, have wine, good food and don't mind kids running around, this is a good spot. We come here on the date just me and my love, or with kids. Love it every time.

We had lunch at the Malibu Cafe, and the experience was awesome. Our waiter was very friendly and suggested what to order. He was right on. The food was delicious! We loved the way the restaurant was set up, with many different seating areas. I wish we had gone at night to see all the lights. The prices were a... More

Lunched at the Malibu cafe while checking the ranch for a possible wedding venue. Lunch was great. Awesome selection of drinks from the bar. Wonderful family atmosphere with plenty of activities for adults and children. Prices reflect the California resort genre. Good ribs and fries. Desserts are also good.

We were at the Calamigos ranch for a wedding, and had cocktail and dinner afterwards to celebrate. We had good food and service. We liked it so much that we were back for dinner. We had dinner outside and it was also good. We recommend it.

Cafe M is the most exciting and wildly romantic dining destination in the Malibu Hills.
Located at the Crest of Malibu, off Kanan Rd. and Mulholland Dr. lies a unique restaurant and lounge with a Nouveau Barbeque menu that made Calamigos Ranch famous 4 generations ago, and keeps it breathtaking today.
Join them Thursday through Sunday from noon to midnight with an amazing al fresco lunch by their private lake, or join them for dinner on a candlelit patio overlooking the property, and stay for farm fresh cocktails under the stars with romantic lounge music, live jazz and blues under the stars!!
As the only dining destination on the Malibu Wine trail, come see what Malibu Vines can offer with the finest wine selections, and even tastings right at the restaurant. Bring a special someone, family, or just some friends and lounge on private cabanas, fluffy day beds, or get a private raft to sail the lake on.
There truly is nothing quite like an evening at M Cafe.
