Description: Cafe M is the most exciting and wildly romantic dining destination in the Malibu Hills. Located at the Crest of Malibu, off Kanan Rd. and Mulholland Dr. lies a unique restaurant and lounge with a Nouveau Barbeque menu that made Calamigos Ranch famous 4 generations ago, and keeps it breathtaking today. Join them Thursday through Sunday from noon to midnight with an amazing al fresco lunch by their private lake, or join them for dinner on a candlelit patio overlooking the property, and stay for farm fresh cocktails under the stars with romantic lounge music, live jazz and blues under the stars!! As the only dining destination on the Malibu Wine trail, come see what Malibu Vines can offer with the finest wine selections, and even tastings right at the restaurant. Bring a special someone, family, or just some friends and lounge on private cabanas, fluffy day beds, or get a private raft to sail the lake on. There truly is nothing quite like an evening at M Cafe.

This a such a great place to be with friends and family. G during the day to enjoy the beautiful setting but stay until dark so you can roast marshmallows at the fire pits. Great selection of local wines.

We just returned from a fantastic dining experience at the M Cafe at the Calamigo Ranch in Malibu. We were a party of 4 - 2 being vegetarians.
The location is magical. A ranch that looks to have a small resort as well as the M Cafe.
There were plenty of options and portions were generous. Food was delicious! There is no rush to leave after dining and we explored the lovely grounds.
Unlike others, we had no problems with slow service. Our waiter was very helpful.
Great dining experience!

The real focus is he outdoor space. It's very pretty. You certainly don't feel like the chaos of L. A. is just down the road. The food is above average. The burger is very good and there is a very nice wine list and by the glass with an emphasis on local vineyards and winemakers.

Went with my 10 yr old grandson and my son, daughter and my son's partner. Grandson had lots of fun playing pool outdoors with a crystal chandelier hung in the trees and then ping pong after dinner. Food was good and a nice wine list. Would highly recommend it for a relaxing dinner
