Have to say this was quite the experience. Great being right on the beach. Parking cost is crazy and have never paid $88 for lunch ever before. Had to do visit once but can't afford that too many times.

What a lovely spot. Quiet during our visit but i suspect it is very busy during the warmer weather. Lovely old pier and good eateries. Make the time to visit and you won't be disappointed.

Sits on beautiful beach. Service is slow and food is just OK. In my opinion there are many other restaurants in the area that are preferable.

Looks like it'd be a beautiful place but is pretty spendy to go there. We pulled in and then left. Looked beautiful though.

This is a great little cove where the Paradise Cove cafe is but it's significantly cheaper to park if you go to the cafe. Great views, large seagulls and there is even a little pier you can walk along

We spent several hours at this treasure on the Pacific Ocean. Lunch included very generous sandwiches, delicious coleslaw and crunchy fries. Excellent service! We thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the water in the provided wooden lounge chairs after lunch. Then walked with feet in the water Ali g the shoreline. Absolutely relaxing!

Delicious and fresh! Portions are large and can be shared. Nice place to have lunch and perhaps one of their specialty drinks then take a nice walk on the beach. We go here every time we have family visiting from Texas. They love the beach.

Came here midweek and hit it right because it was very quiet. My wife wanted to come to see the pier off indecent proposal. Beach was quiet and was very scenic although when busy get full quickly. We paid the $36 dollar parking. Seems steep but you get $30 back in the beach side restaurant which was good. Well worth... More

This restaurant was small and crowded inside when we stopped in, and the outside beach area was wall to wall people! We didn't stay and won't go back!

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.
