We had a good family dinner here and enjoyed the atmosphere and things to do (playing pool, ping pong, life-size chess, etc). Our waiter was very nice and all the staff were great. You shouldn't need a reservation during the week, and if you are...More

Malibu Cafe has potential but misses the mark. The idea of an outdoor country bar where you can sip wine or beer and play games seems perfect, but the environment and most guests were pretentious. Most guests were plastic-looking with fake body parts and the...More

Great food and amazing service in a fantastic location!! Always a winner especially on a sunny day. During the week you don't need a reservation. But you should on the weekend.

As a SoCal native, I was shocked to learn that I had been missing out on this place for so many years! Now my favorite thing to do is share it with other friends!

We went here to celebrate a family birthday. Loved the location and how it was set up outdoors. It's truly a fun place suitable for all ages. The menu selection is fantastic. And that's where the goodness ends. The food was mediocre at best. We...More

Glad we stopped here. This would be a great place for a private event or wedding! Fully outdoor so they probably close for rain. Not a huge wine selection by the glass but the waiter made honest recommendations and I loved the cab he recommended....More

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...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...More

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.
