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*

Too pricey. Not worth the price. It takes too long to wait to be seated and food to arrive.

Everything was great but the wait was horrible. I had a reservation for 1:45 but didn’t actually get seated until 2:30. That was a long wait with no where to sit with shade.

We had a great time! It was a beautiful Friday afternoon in October. Lovely views of the ocean. Delicious tacos and a fabulous tall chocolate mountain cake with lots of ice cream!!!

It was all nearly ruined when some ghetto people started cursing and yelling at a server? Or each other... not sure what was going on but I was glad that we were on our way to the car when that mess happened. I have been to Paradise many times and NEVER has it been ruined in 25 years until yesterday... Since Black lives are supported to matter why can’t all Black People act with self respect!! Yelling and cursing and wearing x rated clothes in a family atmosphere is inappropriate no matter what race you are. But I was so embarrassed for our race because some if us are not ready, lack class and have to act foolish. Dear Paradise Cove employees.. i am sorry on behalf of the 90% of Black people who have sense and know how to behave!!

Great beachy atmosphere right in the sand at the coast, especially if you have visiting out of town guests, looking for lunch with a ocean view. Casual, wear sand friendly shoes. Make a reservation for sure and be prepared for expensive parking even with validation. Food and drinks Insta worthy, you can also reserve a chaise in the sand for prior or after your lunch reservation to make a day of it, get the most out of your parking fee.

Host did not reserve type of table as requested. Had to wait awhile. Food just Sysco bar food. So overpriced! $20 Caesars salad- literally lettuce and sauce!

Worst experience overall. Hostess check in people very rude and totally Unaccommodating. We used to go their often but no more. Too many rules and rude people at the host hostess desk. I know nothing will change at your establishment because you have so much business that you basically don’t care about your local customers that live in Malibu

Although parking is reduced to $8, considering how much we spent on lunch, it would be nice if they validated with no cost to the customer.

Really enjoyed our dinner! Only thing that was a little disapointing is they said they validated my parking and when I went to leave it cost me 8.00. Not the end of the world but disapointed.

Sorry, PCBC—a lovely location but the fish tacos were seriously overcooked, dried out and way too expensive. And refried pinto beans, not even an option for healthier black beans? Only one meal out of three was considered “good.” My friends and I decided it’s our last visit. I know it’s Malibu, but high-priced menu/drinks plus $8 for parking are not outweighed by the setting.

It was a wonderful experience except for the parking. If no parking is available inside you have to park on the street and walk up a long hill which is ridiculous. If you have reservations you still can’t park inside and you still have a 30 minutes to over an hour wait to be seated to eat

Had dinner here for the first time. The food was great. Enjoyed the tortilla soup. The weather was nice and the sound of the beach was amazing. We all enjoyed the food. Salads, burgers and sandwich were all yummy. The only downside was tjey don’t really offer veggies. But other than that, I recommend this place.

We love this place but we reserved a table for the purpose of not having to eat in the sun. The umbrellas don’t fold nor did they cover may sun for us at all. We were in the sun and heat the entire time until I brought down my own umbrella and used it to shade our 2 little ones. Our server was great no complaints, but the food took a very long time to come out, we had to get to go by the time it arrived and go down to the beach to eat.
