We took our 3 kids here for dinner when visiting Malibu/ Santa Monica on a family trip. Cool surfer vibe right on coast. Easy location, on line reservations, valet parking, great food, friendly service. Highly recommend.

Another Malibu staple, Dukes is a great place to sit down, have a few drinks and enjoy the Big Blue right outside. What I just discovered, however, is their amazing fish tacos. They use Opah as the fish and you can have it either grilled or fried (I recommend grilled). Everything about this dish is amazing. The corn tortillas appear... More

We just flew in from a blizzard in Boston. Dukes was exactly what we needed to get right into the West Coast groove. We ordered the Korean Sticky ribs and Chicken Nachos for starters. I highly recommend both. The sticky ribs were delicious, but since we were three people we were longing for just a little more, so we ordered... More

The hula pie would have been worth the trip but all of the fish was good and the location is superb, right on the water. Got lucky and snagged a window booth with windows that open. A bonus was that the table at the booth was narrower than the tables with chairs. Much easier to have a conversation with your... More

Great place to bring guests from out of town to enjoy the ocean views and have a fun and tasty meal. The fish of the day was fresh and deliciously prepared. The waiter was helpful and always on hand to check in on us. It is a great place to dine if you want to escape to Hawaii but cannot... More

This is one of the Duke's you may know from Honolulu or Maui. Large restaurant and bar, right on the beach at Malibu. Nicely done, very Hawaiiana-beachy with the surf gear. Varied menu, all good and well priced. Wait staff were attentive, food and drink were very good.

This place is very cool. The food is cut above pub fare but it's the location that seals the deal. Guy, take your ladies here!

Description
Duke's Malibu has brought the excitement of Hawaii, Waikiki, and surfing to the mainland. The spectacular oceanfront location on Pacific Coast Highway offers over 300 feet of romantic oceanfront dining and memorabilia from both Hawaii and California surfing history. The Barefoot Bar, looking south into the lights of Santa Monica, is a great spot for drinks and casual food with friends.

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
Malibu
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.
