This is a very authentic place in a very special location. The owner, Tony, is a unique personality who is an absolute perfectionist. All the dishes are pure greek cuisine but with Tony's special touch which makes it fly above whatever you can find on this planet. The quality of the ingredients is not just what you can buy around,... More

I'd suggest trying this place out at lunch rather than dinner. Dinner always has the staff catering to the notables (e.g. pop tarts, affluent) and you might get mediocre service. Lunch has most of the same menu at a lesser price. The lamb is always excellent. The staff seems to be a stopping point on to their real vocations, acting.... More

Taverna Tony has been a family favorite since I was a child. Everything they have is amazing, the restaurant itself is beautiful and relaxing, the service is... ok. Delicious food and a fun atmosphere.

Wonderful selections. Being Greek myself, I didn't think the moussaka was as good as it should be. Beautiful patio. I thought the prices a bit high for lunch.

Love this place, one of my regular spots. The proprietor is always friendly and remembers you. You can sit outside for a lovely, lengthy lunch and dinner. Feels very European. Their hummus with caviar is to die for. Order the pita with it, as it's much better than the regular bread. Their grilled octopus is outstanding and their grilled vegetable... More

They have good greek food and great hummus! Worth a day out or evening out for a celebration with friends and family. Wide selection of menu options and everything is good or great.

Very friendly, nice seating area outside. Chairs not very comfortable but ok. Food pretty good, not amazing. Even though we had late seating service was good until we left, we where the last to leave and still servers where attentive and welcoming.

Delicious food! I had moussaka (photo); my husband had lamb shanks and my grandson had a chicken dish. Serving sizes were quite ample. The fresh, crusty bread with hummus was served before we even ordered our dinner. We had an outside table so our puppy could be at our feet to celebrate with us. The cool air was a blessed... More

Taverna Tony, has been a Malibu go to mainstay eatery for years. You will always get great food, and fine service. Make reservations to assure seating, although a walk in may be worth a try If its before 6:30PM

Thank TonyFi18
