Description: Duke's Malibu has brought the excitement of Hawaii, Waikiki, and surfing to the mainland. The spectacular oceanfront location on Pacific Coast Highway offers over 300 feet of romantic oceanfront dining and memorabilia from both Hawaii and California surfing history. The Barefoot Bar, looking south into the lights of Santa Monica, is a great spot for drinks and casual food with friends.

The view is a 5 and the food was about a 2.5. So this is a gentleman's 3. Had brunch there yesterday. The food was plentiful and freshly prepared and served. The service was generally very good. Not wonderful food but good enough for the view.

They only use fresh, seasonal fish, and the preparation choices are yummy. To start, we had poke rolls, which were in this delicious wasabi sauce, and seafood chowder. The chowder was tasty if a bit too creamy/flour-y. I had opa sauteed with panko,
macadamia nuts, lemon, capers, and parmesan for my entree. It was the best fish I'd had in a long time. They were really packed for a Monday night, but we didn't wait nearly as long at the bar as the hostess indicated we would have to (15-20 min., opposed to 50 min.). It's a "family-friendly" and pretty loud place, so not exactly romantic, but the sun setting and then the moon shining on the water were breathtaking. The location is right on the water on the coastal rte. 1. The waves crash so close, the spray often wets the restaurant windows.
