We went on a rainy day, but our day was brightened by excellent service, food, and views. The staff is very friendly from the valet to the waitstaff. SOUPE DE POISSON and LINGUINE VONGOLE were my favorites, but the CACIO E PEPE was also very enjoyable. Cocktails and wines by the glass were also notable. We would go back anytime we needed a meal in Malibu.

I would only note the restaurant is in the Malibu Beach Inn. We drove right by it and turning around on PCH is not always easy.

Went for Valentines. Usually there’s only a pre fixe menu, but they offered both. I had the pre fixe, she ordered from the regular menu.
She had the scallops, which she thought were very good. I got the oyster and the crab Louie starters followed by king salmon in parchment paper. We both shared the grilled avocado with great spices and the raspberry desert that came with mine. The salmon and desert were very good. Nice intimate spot in the Malibu Beach Inn overlooking the pier and water. Malibu’s best kept secret!

We love it here and have been here many times, usually for brunch. We recently came with a couple of friends and we all enjoyed our meal. Sitting outside with the ocean and pier views provides a spectacular setting and the food is great, too! they offer a variety of classic breakfast choices as well as healthier items.

I am there time and time again as this is one of my favorite restaurants. Always great food, service, wine and champagne served in chilled glasses, ambiance and backdrop that can’t be beat. It is spectacular every time. Rafael is a wonderful waiter that goes out of his way to please and provide stellar service! Although they are all good.

The clam linguini was very flavorful, the sea bass was amazing with the charred skin, and the calamari was fresh and crispy. Best part of the evening was the awesome view of the sunset.

The bartender was excellent, good service, but the food was terrible; we had to send the pasta back; very tough and the chicken was bathed in salt; we then tried to play it safe with a burger which fell apart. the wine by the glass had been open too long and was stale so we to had to stick with mixed drinks; also Open Table only showed one table available the whole afternoon and evening, but the place was EMPTY, we were literally the only couple there by 5pm, also it had a shift change and very limited menus until dinner time.

We made a girls night out for dinner at the Restaurant as I've been many times and my friends haven't. They were extremely happy with the meal. All the items from the Tuna Tartare to the Caesar salad and then the main courses were excellent. The Muscles with frittes were excellent, so sweet. Their truffle fries are delicious. Always enjoy and will be back soon.

Beautiful setting, perfect location. Although small, the outdoor space has a spectacular view. Service was exceptional. We were seated and taken care of right away even though we came with a baby and a stroller. I had left a comment with my reservation via Opentable that it was my husbands birthday and they brought the dessert out with a candle for him. Overall great experience.

Another fabulous day in Malibu! Our server, Natalie, was outstanding! We sat on the patio where we enjoyed the fabulous weather, the ocean breeze and watched dolphins playing in the surf. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced for the view and the fact that we were in Malibu. Every staff member greeted us and ensured that our needs were met. I highly recommend this restaurant. Hope that some day I can actually stay at the hotel.... still a bit pricey for me.
