I went to this restaurant on a day trip to Mailbu. I am a vegetarian and saw a dish that I would work for me, but they were out of that dish (at 2pm on a Monday). I ended up with an unexciting alternate dish....More

If you want to dip your toes in the sand while eating good food (albeit, VERY VERY overpriced) this is your place. Pros: Right on the beach. Huge variety of food, good quality. Cons: Prices, limited alcohol allowed on the beach. Crowded.

Went for breakfast this morning. Like other have said, parking is expensive but with $30 min food you pay only $8. And with the meal prices reaching $30 is not a problem. Service was good. Food was average. Nothing special. At least not breakfast food....More

Food arrived semi cold and quickly got colder due to the strong air conditioning. Food nice enough but very pricey.

We arrived at 4.30 pm. We stayed until 7 o' clock. The parking fee was 50 dollars. It doesn't make any sense. I understand you have the opportunities to have dinner paying parking fee just 10 dollars but it was Sunday and you should wait...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

My guess is they would at least stay with their current menu and possible add a special ‘meal for 2’. Best just to call and find out.
