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.

“Cool Views”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Cocktails and appetizers were good. View was fantastic. Service was ok--lots of tourists. But worth the wait if you just want to hang out.

“I would visit again”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

4 of us ate here last week for lunch. We arrived just after the restaurant opened so we had our pick of all the tables on the patio. The location and view are amazing. I had the pulled pork sandwich and the other 3 all had hamburgers; we all enjoyed our lunch.
The only down side was paying for parking ($5.) but I can understand why they need to do this to stop people from parking here and going to the beach. You do have the option of parking out along the roadside for free.
Would definitely eat here again.

“Ask for Joe!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We walked in for lunch and were seated right away at a window table. Joe was our server. Beautiful Blue eyes! He was very attentive and constantly asked if we needed anything. He got all the orders correct, made appropriate recommendations when asked, and was timely in bringing the check at the end of the meal.
The view here is just beautiful. Joe even was knowledgeable about the high and low tides of the ocean. He made us feel like we were having lunch in our own living room.
The food was very good. They have a nice selection of beer, wine and a full bar.
If you're in the area, definitely stop by Dukes in Malibu and please "ask for Joe!"

** Note--the only reason I did not give this place a 5 is because they force you to valet park...even on a Monday during lunch when 3/4 of the lot is empty!

“Great view right on the water”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Get there early, like when it opens early, if not you may be in for a wait. We were there on a Saturday and there were lots of tourists. Good food. Liked the Tuna and hummus. The burger was really good. Also the Bloody Mary was really good too.

“Malibu views”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Our trip up the PCH from LA was made even more spectacular by our visit to Duke's. The restaurant is perched on the hill above Malibu with great views of the ocean. Our food, seafood, was amazingly prepared. Their sauces are very flavorful and the fish fresh. Service was also very efficient and pleasant. Be aware that you must use the valet parking to eat here though.
