Sat by the window and watched wonderful waves coming up to the restaurant. Visited with friends from Arozina who wanted to see the Pacific and boy did they. Service and food excellent as usual. Made us proud to live near such a special place.

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
