Paradise Cove Beach Cafe is a delightful treat for visitors and residents of Malibu. Located at the beautiful Paradise Cove Pier, they offer breathtaking views, incredible service, delicious food and a casual atmosphere.

A reservation at the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe does not hold you a table but puts your party on a priority waitlist. Guests with reservations could potentially wait up to 1 hour with the reservation, depending on how busy it is. Reservations may check-in 20 minutes before their reservation time so we can start preparing your table. In the meantime guests may enjoy the beach and get some drinks and appetizers from our to-go shop. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these strange times.

No mask, no service!
*Masks are required for all guests over the age of 2*

Cute place with a unique charm. Food was what one would expect from a diner, but you can tell people come for the environment. Being able to sit outside on the sand on a beautiful day is quite fun.

Always a great way to spend your afternoon with a delicious bread bowl of clam
Chowder or anything on the menu. Followed by a stroll on the beach…
Paradise !

Food was really good, portions are large so be ready to eat. Kids meal portions are large as well. Place is loud but it’s supposed to be, that is the ambiance of the place, views are beautiful, service was excellent. Drinks, yes please, yummy. Only thing I can say negative was parking, spend over $300 on lunch and still had to pay $10 for parking after validation, not like we hung out after wards and walked the beach we just stopped for lunch. It is what it is, would I go back, without a doubt.

Food is tasty, view is great. Portions are insanely large and therefore pricey. A fun place to take out of town guests, but I recommend sharing a meal.

It’s a beautiful destination but the food was wildly over priced and they didn’t have any avocados which most of their dishes include. Our food took over an hour to come and the burgers which were requested as well done were raw in the middle. So much so my husband couldn’t eat his. So I guess, go for the ambiance of eating on the beach but expect to pay and wait for subpar food. We had 4 in our party…We had a corn on the cob and shrimp appetizer, two burgers with a side of fries and two taco lunch entrees with 3 sodas. In the end with parking and tip our bill was $300 for lunch for 4 people. The service snd ambiance were not worth it.

I went to the Paradise cove cafe for my brunch on Dec 31, 2021. I and my friend had the tacos and corn pasta. We went there to enjoy the views so even though food wasn't extraordinary, we wasn't disapointed. View was spectacular and service was great.

We were celebrating New Years Eve with a nice lunch. My 22 year old son Ordered the Fish & chips which came with a ton of fries but only 2 small pieces of fish. I ordered the tacos and asked for one to be the corn and avocado but was told they were out of avocado. Was a bit disappointed.

We went on Christmas day and the weather was cold, so we sat inside at the window and next to the screened door so felt pretty safe from COVID. The food was wonderful, the portions huge and the staff very attentive, friendly and skilled. Prices are a bit pricy but we expected to pay for the view, and it was worth it. Parking was free for four hours with validation. We walked out on the pier next to the restaurant right after breakfast to cap off a perfect morning!

The only problem I have with the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe is the parking fee. It seems like if I spent $140 for lunch for 2 people it would not cost $8 to park per car.
Everything else was wonderful!
