I have lived in Malibu almost 20 years, have eaten in every good restaurant numerous times, and after eating at Kristys
A half a dozen times, I can now say it is my favorite for many reasons:
1. Incredible food! I have tried kobe burger, sweet potatoe fries, steak, grilled salmon, pizza, fettuchini with chicken, and and chicken parmigiana; they were all the best I have ever eaten.
2. Great location. Right on PCH near Zuma Beach.
3. Fabulous view. Two patios with view of the pacific.
4. Wonderful service. Every time.
5. Variety. Great specials every time so you don't get bored with the menu.
Seems to be a family business, so everyone really cares.
I am very picky, so for me to write a review, much less one so positive, is rare.

If only the food prices were a bit more reasonable.....the food is great. The portions are tiny. The waitstaff is reserved. It isn't a friendly kind of place. All that said, the views are terrific.

malibu is lacking a great pizza place. Kristy's certainly doesnt help matters. Our pizza was so salty and the crust was over-baked, that all the enjoyment of fresh pizza faded away.

While easy to miss in it's perch on the hill, this location hosts the best sunset in Malibu. The owners, Kristy (duh) and Greg were engaging and perfect hosts. The food was delicious, and don't automatically think that these dishes are not rich, most are. They have a fantastic blend of tastes and broad offering, They even created a very healthy plate of chicken, rice and veggies for our kids which they all enjoyed (which is not typically easy). The drinks were a bit pricey overall, and I can I recommend the P.O.G. punch. Deserts are fantastic, the coconut cake is almost worth a return visit on it's own. The staff was on point, which is always a thin line between a positive and negative review in my opinion.

Delicious food! Service was friendly and professional. Partial views of the beach. On PCH, but up high enough that you do not hear traffic. The food and wine were divine!!
