Best margarita in my life. Passion fruit puree. I’m gluten intolerant, so I was forced to watch amazing food devoured, but still was able to eat a great spinach salad and a cod dish that was fantastic.

Unfortunately, NOBU remains below very high expectations. While it is an obvious fact that its location and architectural design provide the ultimate Malibu experience, one cannot say the same for the service. The staff is very unfriendly and overall service is not in line with...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
