Nobu serves excellent food in a very nice way. Atmosphere is fantastic with just a few feet from the ocean. With online reservation it would be easier to return to.

We did not have a booking and despite the restaurant being very busy the staff were accommodating. The have some of the best sushi as know and the venue is brilliant.

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

We arrived around lunch time, and did not require a reservation. Although of note it was not high season for tourists in Malibu, hence they were very busy, but not at a point that everyone required a reservation.
