Nobu Malibu has an amazing location on the ocean. It is always crowded and great people-watching. And the food is terrific. In addition to sushi and other seafood, there are sufficient choices for those who don’t eat seafood.

Plain and simple, it is the best spot for a summer lunch. Amazing food, service is great and position is 10/10. People who rate this place low got lost on the way to McDonald’s which is across the road.

While in the Santa Monica/Malibu area we stopped in at Nobu Malibu for a cocktail and small bites. First of all the atmosphere inside and outside is magnificent. We sat out on the deck enjoying the view of the Pacific Ocean, where they have tables...More

Walked in at Sunday lunch without a reservation. Seated straightaway. Super friendly and professional staff. Perfectly fresh sashimi. We tried a wide range of dishes and all were completely individual and brilliantly tasty. This is one of the 3 best restaurants I have been to.

Despite the somewhat slow service and pretentious attitude of the staff I gave this restaurant 5 stars solely based upon the delicious dishes served. The drinks are outstanding as well but you have to wait on them... at times seemingly forever. Scenery is breathtaking if...More

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

We arrived around lunch time, and did not require a reservation. Although of note it was not high season for tourists in Malibu, hence they were very busy, but not at a point that everyone required a reservation.

Very expensive, you will need at least $100 dollars and that will get you 2-3 dishes that are 2-3 bites each
