Try the Kristys Burger , it's delicious ! Has a view of Zuma and the PCH. Nice people work there. Parking is ok. Close to Zuma Beach and the surf action.

“FOB”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Hey, dads...your only daughter is getting married on the beach in Malibu in a couple of hours and you want/need a scotch. And you realize you haven't eaten. Also, it would be a good idea to practice that speech - the one that will make your daughter tear-up - one more time. Kristy's is THE place! The bar is terrific...and the attention/service even better. Randy, the bartender, took excellent care of me, as did Ed, one of the servers. A generous pour of 18-year old scotch was the perfect complement to thinly sliced Ahi Sashimi. If fact, the experience was so good I returned the next day with my entire family to nibble and nosh on the patio high above the Pacific. And my choice was quickly endorsed by all when I was greeted by name at the door. Amazing...and reason enough to return to Malibu. Oh, and because my daughter and her new husband live nearby.

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

My wife and I stopped at Kristy's for lunch just before we hiked Solstice Canyon in Malibu. The restaurant's service was a little disappointing.

The view from outside is beautiful. The restaurant is also very peaceful, and I enjoyed it very much.

The food was pretty good, but not great. The prices are very reasonable, though.

“A little gem overlooking Zuma Beach”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Kristy's is a little gem of a restuarant overlooning Zuma Beach adjacent to the Malibu Country Inn. The staff is GREAT! Very friendly and accomodating. A fruit plate and a fresh baked muffin for a standard starter is a pleasant surprise. The view of the beach is perfect. Great value for the price.

“Fair - much better places than this in Malibu”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This is a complete disappointment. It is a dismal, old and dirty feeling place. No atmosphere at all. Food is average at best - nothing special at all. Prices are high and its just not worth it. Service is poor and no one seems to care. There are so many incredible places to eat in Malibu, don't waste your time and money on this one.
