Make a reservation and request a table by the windows. Nearer the door is best for sunset views. The menu is wonderful with lots of seafood choices, and interesting appetizers. We had the grilled octopus which was perfectly prepared -- super tender and tasty. We...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
