Food was very good in an area that is lacking many choices. As other reviewers have said be prepared to wait for your food. Breakfast spots are know to turn tables quickly but our wait for pancakes and an omelette was 40 minutes. Hopefully they...More

Relocated now at Trankas. With no contest, one of the best restaurants in Malibu. Better than Geoffrey -- for lower prices. Very well executed inventive cuisine with no BS. Great desserts. Staff very attentive and efficient. The decor is friendly (except for horrible LED lights...)

Today it was to cold to sit outside in our usual breakfast hang-out, the Malibu Kitchen. As we have passed the sign to Kristy's 1000 times on our way to our all-time-favourite beach, we thought we give it a try. It's a nice place -...More

Had the Portobello mushroom and grilled veggie burger and the apple and prosciutto salad. Both delicious. Wonderful service and beautiful view of ocean by Zuma beach. I will come here again.

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
