We tripped over Malo seeking lunch and a place to meet. What a great surprise! Abundant adjacent parking is available. The food is delightfully fresh. There are so many Mexican restaurants that seem to reheat the standard taco, enchilada, etc. fare from large portions prepared in advance in a commissary. Malo clearly prepares everything to order in appropriately sized portions.... More

From Australia, we popped into Malo, Margaritas and one of each the $5.00 starter menu happy hours food deal. What it lacked in freshness it made up in tastiness. Great way to wind down after the day.

Margaritas were great and food favors were wonderful. Wait staff was helpful and friendly. Coke Carnitas was unique-and flavor was as described. Always nice to find good Mexican in California.

As soon as we sat down and were greeted by our waiter, I knew this would be a wonderful experience. The sun was setting and the chips and salsa started being placed at the table. In that moment, this experience became unforgettable. The menu is original and full of something that will appeal to any person and the portion sizes... More

We were with a very large group and had a great time in their outdoor tented space. The food was outstanding and very friendly staff. Being from Texas, it's hard to find good Mexican outside our state, but this hit the mark. Highly recommend.

Although we had made a reservation, our table was not ready when we arrived. We sat in the bar for about 40 mins having cocktails and tortilla dips/salsa awaiting our table. We were offered a table inside, but having reserved one on the terrace, we preferred to wait. The menu was the usual Mexican fare including tacos, burritos and was... More

Malo has some really unique options (pumpkin flower tacos and spicy cucumber margaritas) that make it worth a visit. The food is reasonably priced and the quality is evident. Fresh ingredients and a relaxed, higher-end atmosphere with less than high-end prices attracted us to this restaurant.

I went to Malo for a comedy night upstairs at their Leche Lounge but had to try some bar and restaurant offerings. There's a list of great cocktails like margaritas and mojitos and other variations on the theme. Tasty, different (a cucumber margarita, for example, or medicina latina which consists of tequila, lime, agave, ginger) and ranging in price from... More
