Stunning backdrop to a weekend brunch or lunch, unfortunately the brunch or lunch itself not great. Mediocre at best. The menu is completely predictable, which could be nice and comforting if they delivered on the food quality and preparation, but we didn't feel they did....More

Lovely and friendly staff. Pop in and have a drink and watch the sun go down over their beautiful terrace. Perhaps you’ll see a seal or three swimming happily. The view is spectacular.

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
