Tucked away in the north LA hills Calamigos Cafe is like no other place, it has a really laid back feel but the staff are on the ball. Excellent menu and superb friendly service. Don't miss it.

Love Cafe Malibu for their food or just for drinks! I had The Clooney. Perfect with a killer view. The cheese board is huge and especially yummy.

Went to a business dinner with colleagues from around the world. Very nice setting although I was expecting a view given that the location is up in the hills. Food was standard issue but the ribs were huge, unfortunately only BBQ sauce and bone -...More

Malibu Cafe has potential but misses the mark. The idea of an outdoor country bar where you can sip wine or beer and play games seems perfect, but the environment and most guests were pretentious. Most guests were plastic-looking with fake body parts and the...More

Great food and amazing service in a fantastic location!! Always a winner especially on a sunny day. During the week you don't need a reservation. But you should on the weekend.

As a SoCal native, I was shocked to learn that I had been missing out on this place for so many years! Now my favorite thing to do is share it with other friends!

Cafe M is the most exciting and wildly romantic dining destination in the Malibu Hills.
Located at the Crest of Malibu, off Kanan Rd. and Mulholland Dr. lies a unique restaurant and lounge with a Nouveau Barbeque menu that made Calamigos Ranch famous 4 generations ago, and keeps it breathtaking today.
Join them Thursday through Sunday from noon to midnight with an amazing al fresco lunch by their private lake, or join them for dinner on a candlelit patio overlooking the property, and stay for farm fresh cocktails under the stars with romantic lounge music, live jazz and blues under the stars!!
As the only dining destination on the Malibu Wine trail, come see what Malibu Vines can offer with the finest wine selections, and even tastings right at the restaurant. Bring a special someone, family, or just some friends and lounge on private cabanas, fluffy day beds, or get a private raft to sail the lake on.
There truly is nothing quite like an evening at M Cafe.
