Great location and good service. The food is so so. My fish tacos were blah. But the view and a glass of wine make it worth it, especially if you come early to get a seating with the beach and sunset view.

Make sure you visit this adorable, quaint restaurant. Right (literally) on the Malibu beach. They were taping housewives outside our window. Saw Nick Nolte when we were leaving. Many stars visit this location, but everyone is cool in Malibu and does not bother them. Food...More

This place is quality and finishing up your day here in Malibu is worth it. Had some great happy hour cocktails and some fantastic tapas at the bar, served by super-efficient staff. We certainly loved the food, great location also, highly recommended.

Awesome food and cocktails. Great staff who were very helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit to try them out. Fantastic location.

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
