Kristy's has now moved to the Trancas Market area and has merged with the previous Village Cafe. I think its now known as Kristy's Village Cafe. The location is nice but no longer has the view amenity that it had before. Went there for breakfast and it was good. I think Kristy's really shines when its lunch or dinner, that's... More

The fish specials are always amazing. Love the Mushroom Risotto Arancinis, tuna sashimi. Great ambience and wonderful people who take great care of you while dining. I would highly recommend this hidden gem!

Today it was to cold to sit outside in our usual breakfast hang-out, the Malibu Kitchen. As we have passed the sign to Kristy's 1000 times on our way to our all-time-favourite beach, we thought we give it a try. It's a nice place - but we were the only guests and it was as chilly inside as outside. Nicole... More

Had the Portobello mushroom and grilled veggie burger and the apple and prosciutto salad. Both delicious. Wonderful service and beautiful view of ocean by Zuma beach. I will come here again.

My wife and I are locals in Malibu, and Kristy's is our favorite restaurant, hands down! Honestly you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu, but I would highly recommend the clams mariniere appetizer, the spicy chicken or mushroom pizzas, the burger, or the Hong Kong style Chilean sea bass. If you like classic martini's, this the place! The... More

Having spent the morning on the beach we were looking for a nice restaurant on our way home. We phoned ahead for a table and on arrival (valet parking $5) we were shown to a nice outside table. It was great for a family meal but drinks were a bit pricey and they didn't have a children's menu though could... More

As locals, we were excited to try Kristy's as we had been wanting to go for quite some time. Parking is $5, valet only. We had a reservation and were greeted in a friendly manner. It took a very long time to place our order and even longer to receive our meals. My daughter ordered a burger for $22 and... More

Staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good not great but good. The Bourbon Lemonade and Cucumber Lemonade was delicious! Great suggestion from our waiter. Thanks! Would definitely go back and try something different.

We stumbled across Kristy's while making our way to Zuma beach & were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast service! The food was delicious - a fresh fruit plate followed by a non-greasy and very tasty cooked breakfast while seated on a deck overlooking Zuma beach. Staff were friendly & helpful. Highly recommended.

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.
