We love this place. Perfect setting on the sand in Malibu, CA but still reasonably priced. Good bar. Fresh seafood. Shelled peanuts at the entry which you can eat to your heart’s content then throw down the shells. Good service. Reservations highly recommended.

Spent a few hours at Paradise Cove with wife and son. The beach is very nice, but parking is very expensive (unless you order $30+ from the cafe). The Paradise Cove Cafe was too crowded, so we ordered from take-out and ate at the outdoor...More

This is the first review I’ve written when I’ve sent the food back! We order the hot sharing platter and soon realised that something had gone slightly wrong. The fries and calamari were at best lukewarm. We pointed this out to our waiter and the...More

This place was really disappointing. We booked a table today at 1.45 and were told that it was busy and that if we wanted to eat outside there would be a 30 minute wait. We agreed but the wait ended up being 90 minutes. The...More

Good quality beach around Malibu with paid car park and few restaurants in the vicinity. Not very crowded on weekdays. One of quite a few choices for beach day, not the best nor the worst.

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

Yes. The fee to park is $6 if you purchase $40+ of food and drink. But you can only stay for a couple of hours. Or you can park all day for $40. Only debit/credit card, no cash, at the kiosk.

Agree with the $20-30 mark, that seems to ring a bell. But neat advise from the other respondent - across the road sounds good for me!!
