Great Greek food, fun ambience; they have live music on the weekends and it can be a party atmosphere. Service is top notch and there is seating inside and out.

“Great Greek Food In Malibu”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Taverna Tony has been around a long time in Malibu. I first visited his restaurant in the early 1990's. The food is very; good and of consistent quality. I really enjoy the tremendous variety the menu offers as well as vegetarian as well as carnivorous selections. The California Greek salad and Avgelemono soup are excellent starters, Make sure to order hot pita on the side. The entree selection ranges from Elk to Halibut. He also has live music on weekends. Tony is actually a very nice gentleman and will usually meet you at the door.

“Very Nice Patio Dining for Lunch In Malibu”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Taverna Tony has a great location and a very lovely outdoor patio that makes for a great lunch spot when in Malibu. The greek food is solid with nice salads and traditional greek meat and seafood selections. The grilled Octopus is fabulous. They serve some very interesting Greek wines as well. I like stopping there occasionally for lunch and have had dinner there a few times as well. It's a fun place to eat but gets very busy at night so reservations are a must. My only gripe is the prices. It is very expensive for what you get but some of the salads and appetizers are large enough to share. $30 for a souvlaki plate is a bit much. I guess you pay for the atmosphere.

“A little piece of Greece in Malibu”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Heard about this place from a recommendation from Tommy Lee....don't usually listen to celebrities but he is Greek so I decided to try it. Thank you Tommy Lee for an excellent recommendation. Absolutely love this place. Go in the afternoon and eat outside it is wonderful.
