Phenomenal view of the ocean, as the restaurant sits on stilts above the shore. Phenomenal wine selection as well as a main course of shrimp scampi with a hint of spice. Elegant and beyond relaxing setting. Wonderful atmosphere and excellent staff! Overall, a phenomenal experience!

What distinguishes this place are the views. Ocean views and when the lights come on at night, the sea gulls like to swim in front of the restaurant. Food portions were large which is not the norm in Malibu. Pricing was reasonable. Food quality and...More

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
towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted

Oceanside restaurant with breathtaking panoramic views for romantic dining. Our chic nightspot. Serenades by live DJs spinning hot tracks nightly in the Blue Lounge, brims with a vogue, Hollywood-meets-Malibu crowd, indulging in a tranquil, yet hip vibe.
