We loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious. It was a bit on the pricey side, but I would assume that is typical in Malibu. We were just driving through so we didn't have any other point of reference price wise. Right on the beach! Couldn't beat it, especially for the first stop on our Pacific Coast Highway adventure.

We stopped at the highly recommended Sunset restaurant for a drink and appetizer in the late afternoon. The staff was welcoming, service was great but the VIEW was breathtaking. I wish we could have stayed to watch the sunset. Next time!

Lovely location on the beach.. Funky clientele and music . I went there for a drink and desert after a poor experience else where in Malibu and wished I had eaten there even with a fairly limited menu.!..not particularly comfortable seating in the bar but very friendly and after a few drinks the eclectic seating didn't seem to matter.!! Great... More

40mins from our hotel Santa Monica is the beautifully located restaurant right on the beach, great for lunch or dinner or just a drink, we seem to always choose lunch were we can enjoy a relaxed afternoon to while away the day. Great menu, loads of seafood.

We had out-of-town guests and wanted a place with a nice view on the coast. This was the perfect spot. From our table, we could watch the sun set over the Pacific while enjoying a delicious dinner. I had a special: scallops with roasted butternut squash, eggplant and asparagus, a fabulous combination, all cooked to perfection. My husband had the... More

What a cute little restaurant with awesome views. Went there for lunch and waited a few mins to get a table by the window. So worth it! The views, the food were all awesome. Would highly recommend this place. Loved their Gluten free pasta - one of the best ever!

We have been there and asked to have drinks only - he pointed to the lounge and "welcomed" us - however, the lounge was full and we would not have had a seat. On the other hand, the restaurant was empty, it was 17.00 so not really dinner time. Not poor, VERY poor!!

Driving along Zuma beach on a Sunday morning needs a lot of patience and optimism. We had both since we wanted to have lunch in Sunset restaurant and bar with great determination. Luckily when we with the speed of a sickly snail were getting closer, I noticed that this restaurant provides valet parking. We're saved! - I told my partner,... 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.
