I was recommended to this Greek restaurant by a Greek friend about 6 years ago. I had low expectations since located in the heart of Malibu, CA. Not exactly where I would expect to have a great Greek meal. Well I was pleasantly surprised. From the appetizers, grilled octopus, kalamari, taramosalata,to the main meal, rack of lamb, whole bass fish,... More

This is a very authentic place in a very special location. The owner, Tony, is a unique personality who is an absolute perfectionist. All the dishes are pure greek cuisine but with Tony's special touch which makes it fly above whatever you can find on this planet. The quality of the ingredients is not just what you can buy around,... More

I'd suggest trying this place out at lunch rather than dinner. Dinner always has the staff catering to the notables (e.g. pop tarts, affluent) and you might get mediocre service. Lunch has most of the same menu at a lesser price. The lamb is always excellent. The staff seems to be a stopping point on to their real vocations, acting.... More

Taverna Tony has been a family favorite since I was a child. Everything they have is amazing, the restaurant itself is beautiful and relaxing, the service is... ok. Delicious food and a fun atmosphere.

Wonderful selections. Being Greek myself, I didn't think the moussaka was as good as it should be. Beautiful patio. I thought the prices a bit high for lunch.

Love this place, one of my regular spots. The proprietor is always friendly and remembers you. You can sit outside for a lovely, lengthy lunch and dinner. Feels very European. Their hummus with caviar is to die for. Order the pita with it, as it's much better than the regular bread. Their grilled octopus is outstanding and their grilled vegetable... More

Very friendly, nice seating area outside. Chairs not very comfortable but ok. Food pretty good, not amazing. Even though we had late seating service was good until we left, we where the last to leave and still servers where attentive and welcoming.
