Friends took us there as we were visiting. Sat outside and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon drinking and eating. We were four so we indulged in a pitcher and all of us enjoyed their excellent tacos. Large enough for the women to share. Service excellent. Only...More

I ate at four restaurants while I was in Malibu, and I liked this one the best. That doesn't say much, but this place was pretty good. As others have said, it's not Cuban. It's kind of coastal Mexican, but that was fine with me....More

Good menu for lunch or dinner. Great cocktail options and of course, you have to try one with Casamigos tequila! Fun casual atmosphere. Gets really busy.
