I took my girlfriend here for her birthday as she loves Japanese food and it is definitely the best quality Japanese & sushi I've experienced. Slightly disappointed with the service though, it didn't feel personal at all and they messed up birthday candle request. Not the end of the world but I expect it to be perfect at this kind... More

We always do the Omakase, and I love the unique blend of traditional dishes as well as some new flavors to keep my tastebuds entertained. Service was a bit slow this particular night.

We booked a table for 8 at 8. We ordered lots of tacos, the beef we're my favourite, and I love the green peppers. Fish and chips nice. But we preferred the more tapas style dishes. All the food was delicious and the service was surprisingly good. Scary bill was to be expected.

It is just WOW! The welcoming reception could be a bit warmer. But when you sit down it all disappears. We ate at the counter and chef Eugene was just incredible!!! Thank you!

We decided to go here for an early dinner allowing us to watch the sunset which was beautiful! The views are amazing, the restaurant really in a fantastic location along the pacific coast highway in... More

Book months in advance and get a patio table to take in the view. Sunset is amazing. We still had to wait 1/2 hour even though we had reservations, but it was worth it. Our waiter was very helpful with the menu and accommodating food allergies.

Thank suzyd11249

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.
