you definitely do not need to eat here! I didn't. I went to the bar and took my drink to the outside deck and had a great experience look at the crashing waves as I had my glass of red. Highly recommended!

The best black miso cod I've had in LA area. Staff always friendly and prices are on the higher side but the food is worth it. Valet parking only. Tip - get a table for about 45 mins before sunset.

Parking valet, beautiful view of the ocean, tasty food at moderate prices for this area and excellent service. The environment made the experience.

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

Oceanside restaurant with breathtaking panoramic views for romantic dining. Our chic nightspot. Serenades by live DJs spinning hot tracks nightly in the Blue Lounge, brims with a vogue, Hollywood-meets-Malibu crowd, indulging in a tranquil, yet hip vibe.
