People who live in Malibu are lucky: they have access to the perfect place to have drinks on a Sunday afternoon. I thought Las Vegas champagne brunches were perfect, and they sorta are, but Paradise Cove is my preferred place to waste away a Sunday....More

Spent a fun afternoon here with family. Just off of PCH down a windy road. Cute little pier. There’s a restaurant on the beach. Parking is outrageous. $35

Slow service, 20 minutes with no attention, until one waiter felt sorry for us and picked up our table, outside his area. But, on the patio, you're on the beach, toes in the sand, so no worries. And the food, though expensive, was good- generous...More

Paradise Cove offers beautiful beaches and lovely views. Parking is pricy (about $35 for up to 4 hours) thought.

We were alone there at 9 p.m. - the waves on the beach are very romantic. Food was below expectations though, some mussels closed (dead), some did not smell fresh. The restaurant with such name and every celebrity visiting must still take care of its...More

One of my favorite restaurants in Malibu. The food portions are very large so consider sharing. The atmosphere is fun, and light. There are tables that are directly on the sand which i personally love. There is a full bar and i believe it is...More

Paradise Cove is an enjoyable spot for a stop to enjoy the Pacific Ocean and, if it is open, enjoy the cafe that is on the beach overlooking the sea.

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

Yes. The fee to park is $6 if you purchase $40+ of food and drink. But you can only stay for a couple of hours. Or you can park all day for $40. Only debit/credit card, no cash, at the kiosk.
