My Family and I went there for dinner after the strawberry festival. This place is tucked away in the Santa Monica Mountains off of Mulholland. I was surprised on how the place is set up. Very nice with Valet parking and a nice entryway. The...More

Decided to give this a try as we crossed over on Kanan to the coast. Very busy on a spring Sunday afternoon, as one would expect. We were wandering around a bit lost and the very hospitable manager guided us to the BBQ area. Very...More

Tucked away in the north LA hills Calamigos Cafe is like no other place, it has a really laid back feel but the staff are on the ball. Excellent menu and superb friendly service. Don't miss it.

Love Cafe Malibu for their food or just for drinks! I had The Clooney. Perfect with a killer view. The cheese board is huge and especially yummy.

Went to a business dinner with colleagues from around the world. Very nice setting although I was expecting a view given that the location is up in the hills. Food was standard issue but the ribs were huge, unfortunately only BBQ sauce and bone -...More

We had a good family dinner here and enjoyed the atmosphere and things to do (playing pool, ping pong, life-size chess, etc). Our waiter was very nice and all the staff were great. You shouldn't need a reservation during the week, and if you are...More

Malibu Cafe has potential but misses the mark. The idea of an outdoor country bar where you can sip wine or beer and play games seems perfect, but the environment and most guests were pretentious. Most guests were plastic-looking with fake body parts and the...More

Cafe M is the most exciting and wildly romantic dining destination in the Malibu Hills.
Located at the Crest of Malibu, off Kanan Rd. and Mulholland Dr. lies a unique restaurant and lounge with a Nouveau Barbeque menu that made Calamigos Ranch famous 4 generations ago, and keeps it breathtaking today.
Join them Thursday through Sunday from noon to midnight with an amazing al fresco lunch by their private lake, or join them for dinner on a candlelit patio overlooking the property, and stay for farm fresh cocktails under the stars with romantic lounge music, live jazz and blues under the stars!!
As the only dining destination on the Malibu Wine trail, come see what Malibu Vines can offer with the finest wine selections, and even tastings right at the restaurant. Bring a special someone, family, or just some friends and lounge on private cabanas, fluffy day beds, or get a private raft to sail the lake on.
There truly is nothing quite like an evening at M Cafe.
