Having spent the morning on the beach we were looking for a nice restaurant on our way home. We phoned ahead for a table and on arrival (valet parking $5) we were shown to a nice outside table. It was great for a family meal but drinks were a bit pricey and they didn't have a children's menu though could... More

As locals, we were excited to try Kristy's as we had been wanting to go for quite some time. Parking is $5, valet only. We had a reservation and were greeted in a friendly manner. It took a very long time to place our order and even longer to receive our meals. My daughter ordered a burger for $22 and... More

Staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good not great but good. The Bourbon Lemonade and Cucumber Lemonade was delicious! Great suggestion from our waiter. Thanks! Would definitely go back and try something different.

We stumbled across Kristy's while making our way to Zuma beach & were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast service! The food was delicious - a fresh fruit plate followed by a non-greasy and very tasty cooked breakfast while seated on a deck overlooking Zuma beach. Staff were friendly & helpful. Highly recommended.

With views down towards Zuma beach, this family run restaurant was superb. We were served by the proprietors, Father & Son team, and they were good fun whilst also being super attentive ... the food was delicious & faultless ... highly recommend the chefs specials as we tried most of them between us and all were amazing ... So, if... More

We arrived to our accommodation and were recommended Kristys due to it being within walking distance. We arrived and were a little worried as it is in the corner of a hotel / motel and you have to walk past the pool to get to the restaurant. It was fairly nice inside but quite basic, the menu came and we... More

We always have a good meal here. Even had a french fry pizza (sounds awful) but was really good (kids choice). Patio looks out over Zuma Beach. Far better than pretentious sushi joint down the road near the pier. No attitude, quiet, and reliably tasty all the time.

If Kristy's had quick service, I would bring my clients often! The location is beautiful, the staff is very nice, the food is good, but last time we were there it took at least an hour to be served a lunch! Which might be good for lots of folks, as the view is beautiful & you can hang out &... More

My husband surprised me here by stopping for a mid afternoon snack. What a wonderful little secret this place is! Wine list really nice, fish and chips delicious. Mushroom pizza...cheese was too strong. But the crust was perfect. Lovely view of the mountains and ocean on the back patio. Really enjoyed it...relaxing and wonderful

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.
