Wide ranging menu in a beautiful location right on the beach. Had the possibly best eggs Benedict ever...others enjoyed French toast and a burger. Service was fine and will definitely strive to Return!

We have been here many times with family and friends. Love the location and the food. The service is always bad. Tonight was no exception. We had to ask where our food was, then it appeared but lukewarm. Management where are you??

If you want a good table I suggest reservations. This is for sure a tourist attraction but that being said they do a good job with the quality of food. It's worth it for sure since it's right off the beach. Great Cali vibe

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
