Great place to stop for lunch. Seating is outdoors and the view is spectacular. Food is good. We spent 72.00 for a family of 4.They were very busy but it didn't take long to get our food.

My favorite restaurant. Fresh fish eaten outside at picnic tables with a view of the sunset over the ocean. We don't stop here when the lines get long, which seems to be on holiday weekends. There is also a sweet - sometimes quite hot, though - hike up the hillside behind Malibu Seafood.

I had the two piece fish & chips, which was a LOT of food. The pieces of fish are very large and the batter is good. My wife enjoyed the ahi burger, and then we shared a yummy cup of the New England style clam chowder. Their menu is quite extensive, with oysters, clams, lobster and fish, prepared in a... More

Initial Impression: 2/5 Bit of a "tourist trap" at the side of the busy PCH. Busy, so its working. There are a few free parking spots, a paid state parking area or parking on the PCH. Don't get clocked by a car driving 55 a few feet from your car. Location: 4/5 Nice view of the ocean as you eat.... More

Great location. We walked here from the infamous Malibu Beach RV resort!!! Fresh fish in the market looked great but we ordered lunch from the cafe. Ehhh... wife loves seafood and was not impressed. I had the grilled shrimp and it was a little mushy-ordinary at best. Went again with friends. Best thing was fish n chips. The other 3... More

Trip advisor recommendation when in the area. Parked on the sea side of Highway 1 and ordered prawns and salad. Good system to let you know when the order is ready to be collected, slightly too fast food and throw away plates and all the paraphernalia but this is the west coast. Good food and enjoyed visit - will I... More

This has become a favorite food stop for all, even the locals, all year long! Word has it that the owner personally goes to purchase the fresh fish. There is a good selection on their menu. They have a covered patio to enjoy your meal while looking out at the ocean. They also sell fish to be able to take... More

Great place to go with your family. The outdoor seating is great, but you have to find the right amount of shade with the view (we even saw dolphins while we were there). If you order the fish tacos, be sure to grab a fork, they are packed with goodness and you can hardly pick them up to eat! One... More

This is the freshest seafood at fair prices. There is something for every budget from affordable red snapper to more pricey sea bass and swordfish. The patio dining is very basic (picnic tables) but has a million dollar view that you share with the movie stars up the street. Weekends in summer it gets pretty busy but weekdays and the... More
