My wife and I came for lunch during our vacation in Malibu. The view is spectacular, ocean front overlooking the Malibu peer. I had the fish tacos, highly recommend, which had a delicious sauce. My wife had the linguini with white clam sauce. She really liked it. This is a great restaurant for a very peaceful lunch. Service was great,... More

Visited for brunch on a beautiful day. We got to sit outside and the table was right on the water. Fantastic ocean view and great food. Prices were very reasonable. The restaurant is part of an inn on the beach. A great Malibu brunch spot worth visiting.

Just before Christmas,a bit on the cool side but with the outdoor heaters and provided with lovely warm blankets we were very comfortable. The service was great and the food was good. Had a fish entree and the chocolate chip gelato dessert Asked for a warm full bodied wine and really enjoyed it That glass wall is a nice idea... More

Can't really review the food since we haven't received any yet. Still waiting in a half-empty restaurant for our reservation from an hour ago. Surrounded by dirty tables Staff running around-- food falling off plates onto floor. Truly horrendous. It's appalling--like a scene out of a Red Robin. I believe there is a homeless man at the bar ogling the... More

After a day out in Malibu we decided to get some dinner in carbon. I've had a better steak in a dive bar, the salad was just a plate of beetroot, I started the night with no utensils and had a glass of water broken over me. Had the steak and salad been half edible I wouldn't be so upset.... More

My husband and I spent the night in Malibu on a road trip & made a reservation here for breakfast. Despite being 20 minutes late we were seated right away outside. The view of the beach, pier, & ocean is really breathing taking. I ordered the protein omelette & my husband ordered the crab cakes Benedict & split an order... More

This restaurant is a joke. First, we came at 4pm but dinner was not served until 5.30pm. We tried to order pizza as snacks to pass the time, but were informed they ran out of dough. For dinner, we were informed that the fish of the day was swordfish. Great Then after quite some time (almost when you'd think the... More

Each day during 4pm and 5:30pm we serve only a limited bar menu to allow us to reset and better serve our dinner patrons. This is a standard practice throughout most... More

We celebrated a milestone birthday with breakfast here in August. Valet parking, best view ever sitting outside on their glass surrounded balcony!! Service was awesome, food choices and prep were fabulous. We even brought our own champagne and didn't get charged for corkage. No pricier than any place with this kind of view. They also have steps down to the... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood 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.
