It's worth to stop here and eat some great and tasty seafood! It was the best calamari I ever eat! The staff was really nice and friendly. View is nice but watch your steps, there is deep and hot sand for your feet...

The view is probably great during the day. The service was good but the food was bad. All or our burgers were WAY over cooked. The bun of our $22 burger crumbled as we but it because it was so dry and hard. The clam...More

Loved this small beach. lots of seaweed but don't let that put you off! Park out on the road as it is free. Only a short walk into the beach. Great restaurant for lunch as well. Good waves the day we went.

We have been to this restaurant many times over 25 years, and have always enjoyed it. However, today was extremely disappointing. My meal of seabass and baked potato was the worst meal I can remember in years. The baked potato honestly must have been baked...More

Great location right on the beach that is clearly quite popular. Strolled down Malibu beach after a huge meal.

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
