Great location and good service. The food is so so. My fish tacos were blah. But the view and a glass of wine make it worth it, especially if you come early to get a seating with the beach and sunset view.

I held a Rehearsal Dinner for 50 for my son and finance. Mindy at The Sunset went above and beyond! The service was excellent, they were extremely organized and set up the room/patio exactly as I requested, including my decorations. I had to coordinate the event from the East Coast and they were very accommodating. Can't say enough great things.... More

Make sure you visit this adorable, quaint restaurant. Right (literally) on the Malibu beach. They were taping housewives outside our window. Saw Nick Nolte when we were leaving. Many stars visit this location, but everyone is cool in Malibu and does not bother them. Food was really good, service is excellent. You can see the sunset every evening (thus the... More

This place only gets stars for location. I can't believe that people in Malibu actually eat here. We arrived and I had to get out of the car to call the valet over. Then our table wasn't ready for our 8:30 pm reservation. They sent us to the bar. We ordered two vodka sodas with lime. We got lemons. It... More

This place is quality and finishing up your day here in Malibu is worth it. Had some great happy hour cocktails and some fantastic tapas at the bar, served by super-efficient staff. We certainly loved the food, great location also, highly recommended.

OK view overlooking the beach across the street. Friendly, efficient staff. I ordered a bowl of N.E.Clam Chowder $10 which had a pleasant creamy rich taste but clam and potato pieces like Campbells. For the entree, I chose Fish & Chips $19 which consisted of two small pieces of nicely crisp batter and good fresh cod. I requested sweet potato... More

We recently ate at the Sunset as part of a large party. This restaurant catered and hosted our meal for 25 people. I understand that cooking for 25 is a big task. That's why we ordered our specific meals months in advance. We had our own large room, which was nice, but the food - which had been planned months... More

I went for my birthday and it was beautiful especially in the evening. My friends think this is there favorite place and love to watch the sunset. We didn't make it this time and I wish he had gone again.

We had lunch here last week as way to escape the heat in the valley. It was better than we hoped. Great location across the street from the beach. They have a private parking lot that makes it easy on a busy day. Food was really fresh and good and very reasonably priced. My wife had the fish tacos which... 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.
