My husband and I went to this restaurant on a Thursday evening. Upon entering, we were very impressed with the ambience and fragrances we experienced. We were quickly seated, offered menus, and given information about the evenings specials. We both ordered the Veal with Porchini Mushroom special and were amazed when our meals were delivered. Not only did they look and smell wonderful, they WERE wonderful. We had not planned to take leftovers because we were headed home the next day. BUT, there was no we wanted to leave this wonderful meal behind. Since the portions were so large, we knew there would be enough for another meal. Several days after returning home from vacation, these leftovers did indeed provide us another wonderful meal. Owner and wait staff very friendly and very efficient. Will definitely return to the restaurant again and would recommend it to anyone, adults, children, and families.

Malibu of Surfside is easy to pass by. It's in a small strip mall, along with two other restaurants. We'd been coming to Surfside Beach for years, but had never gone here before. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in- soft lighting, nice atmosphere, & cosy seating.
The menu offers a lot of different selections, along with the usual Italian standards. The bread and dipping sauce was very good, and the salad dressings were awesome! (I had the blue cheese & my husband had the house dressing.) For my entree, I opted for the Eggplant Parm, and it was the best I'd ever had! (Sliced thin, sweet, and not soggy. Yum!!) My husband had the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, and it practically melts in your mouth. The portions are very generous!! (Neither of us could finish our dinners, and ended up taking half home.)
We highly recommend Malibu of Surfside, and will definitely go back before our trip home!!

We have been here a few times and each time the meal is better then the last time. The owners and staff are so friendly you feel like family. Always make it a point to have dinner here every time we are in the area. YOU CAN"T GO WRONG

Everything was excellent from the service to the quality of the food. Only thing That would make it better is a wine list.

If you go, definitely get the cheesecake...

3pm late lunch....looked at TripAdvisor and the reviews were really good. Decided to go for it, wanting to have something small.
It worked out as a really good meal - we are coming back!
The risotto is out of this world, old good Italian style! Calamari also so fresh and lightly fried, perfect.
Look forward for our dinner - can't think of leaving Surfeside without it. Thank you Malibu team!
