First time to this restaurant and will definitely come back. Great Argentienean cuisine with full of flavors. The Chocolate mousse is so dense but still good. The Barramundi was so fresh and delicious. Great friendly servers as well.

This was my first visit to Malbec but it came highly recommended by a few locals who dine there often. I should have known that it would be good, especially the warm and friendly way we were greeted as soon as we walked in. (It's...More

The skirt steak here + chimichurri sauce is to die for. The steak is tender and flavorful and the chimichurri is excellent. The fries are also great, as is the sangria. Recommend for a nice dinner date!

As it was a relatively rare for Christmas Day to find an open restaurant, we were relatively surprised by how good it was! The steak was as other reviews say, great. Atmosphere a little lacking and wine list limited but the food good. Enjoy!

Had a great dinner here the other night. The beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly and the flavor was great. The restaurant is nicely sized with a private room and the restaurant is very easy to find. A must visit if you are in the area.

Not sure if we mis-ordered but everything was average about this restaurant. The place was cute and the service was decent. My sole was ok but my husbands flank steak was very plain and all of our veggies were under seasoned. Nothing bad but nothing...More

This was an excellent choice for dinner. I was torn between the ribeye and the stuffed ravioli. My boyfriend decided on the ribeye so knowing he’d share, I went with the ravioli. Very glad I did. It was homemade, fresh and very delicious. The wine...More

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
