We phoned up to book but were told they were full but as we were staying nearby, we went along anyway and got a table straight away. Nice place, great food, our waiter was trying to sell us everything which was a bit over the top. The bottles of wine start at $60, so take a large credit card with... More

Been a few times when in LA. Super popular amongst all sorts, from tourists to A listers. Views of Pacific are lovely, you can see why the Beckhams come for their parties. Can be hard to secure reservations, even harder to get them outside with an ocean view unless you're a celeb but it is doable. Otherwise it's BAU Nobu... More

We went on a rainy evening so we could not take advantage of the view but the decor in the restaurant was beautiful. Drinks at the bar were a good pour and not expensive relative to the price of the food. We had the mushroom soup which was loaded with exotic mushrooms and packed with umami flavor. Sushi was fresh... More

Nobu is a scene now that it is in its new building. The staff turn over is ridiculous (except some of the sushi chefs). If you want to pay a lot of money to be treated as though they could careless (which they mean unless your a celebrity) then by all means go there. We live in Malibu have been... More

A disappointment. But, let me first start with a positive, our waiter made every effort to be pleasant. The valet service the same. But staff training at every level was sorely lacking. To go back to the beginning, our reservation was made for the first minute the restaurant opened. When I made the reservation, I was told seating could not... More

Can't beat the location in Malibu. Tough to get a reservation but table ready on time. Actually the place was nearly empty at 6:30 on a Friday. Service and food excellent, however we weren't expecting the portions to be so small. And of course the place is $$$$$. Left hungry and had to stop and grab a pizza at D'amore's... More

Nobu Malibu has it all and they will make you feel special when you are there. You'll need to get organised and book. The views are amazing and the ambiance is wonderful. It gets top ratings from us. Thank you Nobu.

The most amazing atmosphere, obviously a few celebrities knocking around. Had the most amazing night as a tourist from England I was really welcomed and took care of my car and cases. Drinks are pricey wouldn't expect any less

Food was a balance of creative and classic food. Food was perfect! The setting on the beach in Malibu was absolutely sublime! Highly recommended. Get a table outside to enjoy the beautiful setting.

Went for a lazy Sunday lunch with my daughter. The food was superb, the service friendly and attentive and the views are spectacular. A must do for an LA visit.

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
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 with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
