Lunch at this scenic cafe. Quality of food was of a very high standard as was the service. Car parking can be an issue here though.

Passed by to stop for lunch and relax on a beach. The place looks very secluded and peaceful. You should definitely ask for a table outside - the view is amazing! If you are not from the US beware of the portion sizes - we...More

Very casual, tables in the sand (umbrella tables); indoor seating too; just loved it. Great food and atmosphere outdoors overlooking the ocean. There are benches and lounges out in the sand to sit and watch the waves/ocean. Go have lunch here, just a great place...More

When we travel from out of town and want to spread a day at the beach we always try to find a beach club as it will have chairs, umbrellas, food and bathrooms! This certainly fit the bill! Was perfect beach day!

Stopped here with friends after a hike in Solstice Canyon. The restaurant is full of history and beautifully located on the beach. Eat inside then make your way to the beach for drinks. The food was really good and the portions are ridiculously large. This...More

We visited Malibu as part of our holiday to Los Angeles. We didn't really have any idea where to stop for the beach and saw the sign for "Paradise Cove". We got the the barrier at the car park and notices that parking was $50...More

The only reason I gave this place 2 stars is because it is in the ideal location -- on the sand of a pretty beach in Malibu... and they have their own parking lot, which usually fills up pretty quickly on a nice day so...More

This place is all about the setting: a beautiful Malibu beach cove. The parking charges are extortionate and the restaurant food is OK: usual US fayre. We had a great waiter (Ryan) and enjoyed the beach and swim in the ocean.

We navigated here for a quick drink and stop on our way through Malibu to LA. This is not that kind of cafe and we didn’t know until it was too late to reverse so writing this review to warn others. As it was a...More

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
