The Sunset

A great restaurant at the end of Westward Beach Road (where Free Zuma is located).  Killer views of the beach from the giant windows in the building.  Casual atmosphere and laid back furnishings.  You can valet your car or try to park along Westward Beach Road for free.  The prices are definitely beach prices – Fish tacos for lunch are $15 & Sunset clam Chowder is $9.  But if you are looking for great dining and beach views in Malibu, you can’t beat this place.  Check out their New Year’s Eve menu, if you want to ring in the new year on the beach!

Malibu Farm

The restaurant at the end of Malibu Pier.  The menu is full of organic, healthy items like Kale Apple Juice, multi-grain pancakes, and a salmon sandwich.  They also have cooked up some yummy dishes like a Fried Egg sandwich (Fresh Farm Eggs) or a Beef Burger (Grass Fed Beef) and of course, there is the Chocolate Cake for dessert.  It is very popular so the wait to get seated is not pleasant.  But dining at the end of the Malibu Pier with ocean views is very pleasant.  Be aware, like the Malibu Pier Restaurant that you pass on the way out to the end of the pier, the prices are high – but organic food is always more expensive anyway.

Malibu Pier Restaurant & Bar

A great place to eat with indoor and outdoor seating right at the Pier’s entrance.  The outdoor area is right on the water with great views and sitting under one of the umbrella shaded tables in the late, lazy afternoon in Malibu is just perfect.  The food is pretty pricey – that’s the only downside, so brace yourself when you see the menu and your check.   The place was under construction for a long time getting a “face lift” so to speak and it just reopened this summer under new management.  So, if you are looking for a place to enjoy crab cakes, shrimp corn dogs, or oysters and a Mojito or other fine drink, you can’t beat it.

Dukes Malibu

Ahhh.  Dukes on the beach at Las Flores and PCH.  Named for Duke Kahanamoku – ahh, a gentleman from another one of my favorite places on earth, O’ahu, Hawai’i.  If you ever get to Honolulu, his statue is adorned with leis and is located along Kalakaua Boulevard near Waikiki Beach.  Gorgeous view – his statue… but back to Cali… One of the well known restaurants in Malibu and one of my faves.  Great fish tacos and view!  Sandwiches are really delicious, too.  Valet is mandatory – no bueno, but I deal with it.  It is a bit pricey and there can be a verrrryyy long wait on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, but after all, it is Malibu.  Ha, it’s less expensive than Dukes Waikiki!   Oh, the Barefoot Bar is not actually on the sandy beach, sadly,  but you have a nice view.  Heated outdoor patio at the bar, ocean sunset views with sea gulls.  What more could you ask for?
