We spotted the rooftop bar from the PCH coming in from LA and wanted to try M. We were not disappointed. We arrived in time for sunset, sat up top at the bar and had a great bird's-eye view. The chicken peri peri was perfect....More

Everyone in our group agreed that their food was prepared well and served hot. The steak and lobster was excellent; our waiter (Israel) recommended several entrees, all of which were enjoyed by friends. Piri piri is the go-to order, not too spicy but good flavor.
