Best items are the fish tacos and the margaritas. Don't bother with anything else. Fun atmosphere and food quality is consistent.

Would not return. We stopped here with the intention of having dinner and drinks and it took so long to get waited on we decided on drinks only. The margaritas were not good and we kept watching as one dinner after another was returned to the kitchen. In addition, the wait staff was more concerned about their cell phones and... More

We enjoyed a relaxing dinner on the covered outdoor patio at this quaint little restaurant nestled in the Malibu Country Market Place. The food was good and moderately priced, and the margaritas were outstanding! A fun place to visit!

This is the restaurant owned by Cindy Crawford's husband. We sat outside to eat, which was very nice and comfy. Had a couple of beers and I had chicken tacos and my husband had the Cuban sandwich, which I believe was one of their specialties. My tacos were okay and my husband said the Cuban sandwich was really good. Guess... More

Malibu popular but within the 8 different dishes we ordered for a late lunch we all found nothing special. Beans and rice and corn galore and all the traditional tacos and while adequate nothing stood out for us. Atmosphere and Service was good but that is not enough for us to go back. The drinks however were good and large... More

We were there on a slow night, and ate in the small indoor dining area. Service was attentive, if not particularly friendly. Typical for most of the spots in the Country Mart. Guac was fresh and fish tacos hit the spot.

Had been recommended to look for this place and quite well hidden. Very popular for such a spot so we took one of the few free tables in the inside bar area and ordered some beers and some chicken tacos. Beer really good as the tacos were outstanding. Strongly recommend if your in the shopping area, visiting surfrider beach or... More

Arrived just before the kitchen closed, they got everything out very quickly, good service. Must have: guac, prickly pear mojito, carne hacada, seared salmon & churro ice cream sandwich! Can't go wrong.

This place was terrible. We were doing some shopping and came across this restaurant. It looked nice so we decided to go in and have some lunch. We walked in and they told us there was no wait for tables inside so we sat inside. The waitress came quickly to take our order and the buser brought us chips with... More
