The bar is always loud. Very hard place to meet up for drinks with friends. Live music? No thank you. The drinks are good. The food is consistently mediocre. Just a Bloomington hotspot and for no other reason than it's typical.

Malibu is a very classy and jazzy restaurant. Their cocktail selection is top notch, with the Derby and Mojito being my top favorites. I have had nothing but delicious entrees, anywhere from Seared Ahi Tuna to Chicken Oscar. Their pizzas and burgers are amazing too!

Can't go wrong- everything was yummy. Fish tacos were outstanding. A few outdoor tables available as well.

Father's Day dinner. Ordered pork chop, salmon, and crispy chicken salad. Broccoli was the entree side dish which was cooked perfectly. All dinners delicious. Ordered Mer Soleil chardonnay which was $12 but very good. Nice restaurant atmosphere and service. Definite recommend.

Very friendly service, staff knows the menu well and does a great job to customize it to the specific needs. Atmosphere on street patio hands-down beats any European street cafe. Favorite dish: tuna sushi appetizer.

The restaurant is pretty flat to get into, so I think it would be fairly easy to navigate. Paid parking is along the road and around the courthouse square, with cross-walk lights.
