    Fish Tacos are amazing! Gigantic portions. Great place.

    The Works is not to be taken lightly. A foot of chocolate cake plus three scoops of ice cream and hot fudge.

    This is a great restaurant that resembles a little resort with private beach. Read more

    It may not be the best food in the world... but it is the most expensive.

    Look out for the hostesses... Their bitch-o-meter soars through the roof!

    One way around the 'no alcohol permitted outside’ signs is to buy a sealed bottle of beer and open it yourself on the outdoor patio. Then just sit back and people-watch under the sun. Read more

    Screw waiting for seating. Go out onto the beach and snap a few seats or beach bed. You can order from their outside food bar, grab some eats, drink and rays. Plus run your feet through the sand.

    Didn't find a difference between alcohol and non alcohol cocktail. Water with a lime! Overpriced, parking is a joke, you should "validate" it or it will cost 40$, but noone told this. Avoid this place

    Pina colada tasted neither of pineapple nor of coconut.

    So good to eat there not very expensive

    Go for the outside seating to enjoy great food and drinks while watching the sunset. The shrimp balague and soups are delicious.

    Order the Clam Chowder! Is the best I've ever had. Be prepared to be full! =) The chocolate chip cheesecake (say that fast!) is SO yum!

    Hands down one of best spots around & far enough from the tourist madness of Santa Monica. Food is good and comes in large quantities, you can't beat the view, cost is low, and parking gets validated

    Portions are HUGE!! Order carefully! Delicious chowder, though. (Coming from a New Englander)

    Most expensive touristy place I have ever been. The food was over priced and mediocre at best, and it cost $30 dollars to park! I don't think I'll be coming back.

    Oceanside window tables followed by some beach time is de rigueur here. Great Oatmeal(really!),fantastic Mac Coconut Pancakes & extraordinary bacon & sausage

    The oatmeal is great-like English porridge.

    Just called & the restaurant is actually open until 10. Don't know why it says 3.

    $40 MINIMUM for parking? It's a nice stretch of beach, but not that nice.

    I came here with my whole family and we all loved the place. It's really beautiful! As for the food, gotta try the clam chowder, the crispy calamari, the crab cakes and the prime steak!!!

    Great location on the beach. Perfect spot for cocktails on the beach. Service was very friendly and really great. Food however is mediocre at best.

    Suzie Linville · November 29, 2013
  • Brent W.

    Don't try to walk in. It's $20 a person to walk in or $6 a car to park. I guess you have to be Eco-friendly some other day.

    Brent Warner · September 28, 2013
  • Renee M.

    Great fish po boy.

    Como prato principal pedimos camarões envoltos em lascas de macadamia e coco com molho de mel e mostarda.

  • Anna Raphaella E.

    Lugar perfeito a beira mar de Malibu. Uma decoração praiana da o ar californiano ao lugar. Pedimos de entrada uma taça que vem com tds as opções de tira-gostos quentes.
