We always want fish in Malibu as we drive thru on our way to Bay Area. Tried a new restaurant on the beach in N Malibu. Shrimp Louis salad was excellent and spouse loved his fish and chips. All the meals looked fab and neighboring table's clam chowder smelled divine.

Probably the best restaurant we were during our 6 week trip along the west coast ! Just dropped in for a quick lunch and were served the best fish & chips for years. Catch of the day fresh fish, fine, light and tasty batter, "pommes allumettes" french fries. Absolutely perfect and very tasty.

You can see the whole beach from the second floor window! It's beautiful and always a joy to be in Malibu. I had the fish tacos which were delicious and generous. The weather was beautiful and the company was equally enjoyable . Thank you to my friends who hosted. Lovely way to spend the afternoon.

What makes this place great is the location! Excellent views of Westward Beach and steps from the sand. Good bar scene if you go during happy hour. Stick to the drinks, oysters and bar menu for the best options. They have a high turnover in staff so service is always a little sketchy but take a deep breath and watch... More

This restaurant is across the street from beautiful Malibu beach and wedding 'hot spot'. You can be crazy dressed or jeans and flip flops! The drinks are really good! The lobster was excellent! Skip the fish tacos... average at best. Oysters small but great flavor! Fun crowd at the small bar ... a lot of fun!!

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

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
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.
