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.

“Barefoot Bar”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Visited the Barefoot Bar for late afternoon drinks and a bite after a visit to the Getty Villa. Mai tai was really good and seared ahi tuna tacos as well. Bar was packed. The outside patio was full so we had to sit inside the bar, but the windows were open and there was a great breeze. Prices were refreshingly normal, considering it is Malibu.

We were visiting from Oklahoma & this restaurant was recommended by a friend. The views are worth the visit alone. The service and food are great. Overall great experience!

“Always a great spot!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This place is always a great beachy hangout spot in Malibu. Casual, energetic, fun. Good food and amazing Mai Tai's. They have a bar on the side in the sand and its a cool spot to chill out and feel like you're right on the beach.

“Festive & Good Food”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Went for lunch. Servers were really friendly and prompt. Got a table at the window and could see the surf crashing on the rock wall. Great rolls & onion soup to start, then excellent fish tacos and fish & chips. Nice atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon; the bar area was very inviting; nice little patio on the side. Wish we could have stayed all afternoon! I'd imagine it's really fun in the evenings near sunset.

“Luau food bliss”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Went to Sunday brunch with the girls and expected a mediocre food experience with a marvelous view! Got a great food experience with an even better view! Service was great, food was like being at a luau in Hawaii with more choices and how can you beat the Cali Coast view? Go early to get a good seat! YUM!
