This is the best fish market in Malibu. Excellent and knowledgeable staff and fantastic seafood! You can call in advance to place your order.

We just pulled over on the side of the road after I had this craving for seafood. Looks like a hole in the wall, but it has a great fresh seafood deli and a simple menu full of awesome fresh fish. Nothing frozen here!! Watch the Malibu waves and eat a fried fish basket, any kind of grilled/blackened/fried combo you... More

My son brought me here and I have to say I was really impressed. We had the two piece fish and chips. You can either sit outside under umbrellas or in a covered patio with picnic tables. The view is totally amazing. We went on a sunny day and had an awesome view of the Malibu ocean front homes, beaches... More

Really fresh, really tasty seafood. Apparently this is a local tradition. Located on a busy highway and you kind of take your life in your hands getting in and out, but the food was as good as it gets. I had a scallop sandwich that was just mouth watering. Highly recommend.

panned fish are freeze fishes and not good quality. Good location and you can eat on terrace with beautiful sight on the ocean. PCH dangerous, but parking go up where camping cars are parked, best panoramis sight

I grew up in Malibu and have been eating here as long as I can remember. Now I come here every time I'm visiting the area. When ordering something cooked, we usually call ahead for pick-up because the lines are so long. Also often buy our fresh seafood here and take it home to cook. Their smoked mussels are the... More

If you ever driving down the PCH on a clear day, this is the place to get fresh seafood for lunch. Parking is limited and you'll most likely will have to park on the street. Seafood Combo is a must order at this place. You cannot go wrong.

Worth the long queues and busy car park! Such yummy food, not only is their fish amazing but their breaded chicken strips are delicious too! Chips were the closest to proper chips we've found in the states and we approve! Will be going back when we revisit Malibu later in our travels!

Great seafood place in Malibu. Easily packed on the weekend. We arrived there right before it opens at 11am, so there were no crazy line yet. Ordered Halibut Grill Fish and Combo Seafood (Fish chip, calamari, shrimp). The seafood are all fresh!! Will be back for sure

Thank PengembaraAbadi
