I love the atmosphere here. It is exactly what I pictured Malibu would be like. From the chandeliers hanging from the trees, to the meandering river that runs around it. We've been there twice and it was very family friendly, while not disruptive to adults....More

Fun environment for families / friends to go and hang out. Never knew this place even existed. The atmosphere is great and the food is a bit overpriced.

Stunningly tucked away in the Malibu mountains, this place has gorgeously landscaped views, very good food, great service & terrific drinks. There are games on the ground floor while dining is upstairs. A bit hard to navigate if you are in a go go or...More

This is a nice family atmosphere. It's similar to a family picnic, however, the barbecue is average at best. If you know anything about barbecuing you will understand the following the brisket does not have a smoke ring. I'm not sure where they get it...More

Went for lunch on a warm day, but was nice in the shade. Food was good and so was service. Great place to meet up with family or friends for a casual day out. Lots to see and do. Will definitely go back.

Seriously, this place is gorgeous. The sprawling grounds are adorably decorated - string lights and "shabby chic" signs everywhere. The food was fantastic - boyfriend gave me a bite of his fried chicken and I swear it was the best I've ever had and I'm...More

Cafe M is the most exciting and wildly romantic dining destination in the Malibu Hills. Located at the Crest of Malibu, off Kanan Rd. and Mulholland Dr. lies a unique restaurant and lounge with a Nouveau Barbeque menu that made Calamigos Ranch famous 4 generations ago, and keeps it breathtaking today. Join them Thursday through Sunday from noon to midnight with an amazing al fresco lunch by their private lake, or join them for dinner on a candlelit patio overlooking the property, and stay for farm fresh cocktails under the stars with romantic lounge music, live jazz and blues under the stars!! As the only dining destination on the Malibu Wine trail, come see what Malibu Vines can offer with the finest wine selections, and even tastings right at the restaurant. Bring a special someone, family, or just some friends and lounge on private cabanas, fluffy day beds, or get a private raft to sail the lake on. There truly is nothing quite like an evening at M Cafe.
