Loved every second of our meal here! I had the Korean steak tacos & my friend had the fish tacos and both were delectable. The homemade coleslaw has been the only kind of coleslaw I have ever fund edible, The views from the outdoor patio were beyond gorgeous! They only have valet parking for $4 in their lot but you...

So, quick version, love Duke's, all of em. Dropped into bar, rainy Monday night, 8:30. Waitress said kitchen closed early due to slow business. We bailed, but remarked to mgr how much we liked the remodel. Upon learning why we were leaving, he said nonsense, we can certainly get your order in for dinner. He did, they did, and meal... More

We went for lunch a party of five during a recent rainy Saturday afternoon. The indifferent hostess sat as promptly for our reservation at a lovely booth overlooking the Pacific. Two of us ordered the fish special, which was Mahi Mahi, and was delightful. I asked for fresh vegetables to be substituted for coconut rice, and the modest up charge... More

I visited this restaurant with friends and had drinks and appetizers. The margarita was incredibly strong with not much lime, I couldn't finish it. We ate nachos for an appetizer and they were just okay. I don't feel the need to go back there. The bar scene was cool, but if the food isn't great and the drinks were eh,... More

We took our 3 kids here for dinner when visiting Malibu/ Santa Monica on a family trip. Cool surfer vibe right on coast. Easy location, on line reservations, valet parking, great food, friendly service. Highly recommend.

Another Malibu staple, Dukes is a great place to sit down, have a few drinks and enjoy the Big Blue right outside. What I just discovered, however, is their amazing fish tacos. They use Opah as the fish and you can have it either grilled or fried (I recommend grilled). Everything about this dish is amazing. The corn tortillas appear... More

Description
Duke's Malibu has brought the excitement of Hawaii, Waikiki, and surfing to the mainland. The spectacular oceanfront location on Pacific Coast Highway offers over 300 feet of romantic oceanfront dining and memorabilia from both Hawaii and California surfing history. The Barefoot Bar, looking south into the lights of Santa Monica, is a great spot for drinks and casual food with friends.

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
Malibu
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.
