There’s a lot to discover when it comes to the dining situation in Malibu. There are some amazing establishments offering various types of fare, so there is sure to be something to please your palate.
When you’re visiting this legendary beach town, you will want to seek out the finest cuisine. These six establishments get particularly high marks for being some of the best restaurants in Malibu:
Off the Pacific Coast Highway, Geoffrey's has specialized in fresh-caught seafood since 1948, when it was a favorite spot of Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. Breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline are kicked up by waterfalls and tropical plants creating a decidedly romantic atmosphere at Geoffrey’s. Special dishes include seafood paella, and tuna tartare. You’ll enjoy the Californian cuisine and you might spot dolphins and whales showcasing their fantastic water displays.
Lucky’s, the upscale Malibu steakhouse, has been a hit ever since it opened its doors. Crisp, white tablecloths adorn sun-drenched tables. Wraparound views of the ocean make dining at Lucky’s an even more stellar experience. Lucky’s sticks to a traditional steakhouse menu with options like shrimp cocktail, fried calamari alongside ample steaks and chops, roast chicken and others.
When you feel like kicking back, staying in and just relaxing for the evening, Villa Yetta is the most elegant and fashionable place to do it. We can arrange for a personal chef to come in and create a sumptuous dinner for you to enjoy on your terrace overlooking the most ethereal sunset melting into the water. This home is on Malibu’s most prestigious coastline. Your LVH booking comes with full services and 24/7 support.
Dining at Moonshadows feels like you’re dining on a luxury yacht surrounded by massive windows for an exemplary panoramic ocean view. The mouthwatering dishes have Asian fusion, Italian and American influences. Appetizers include choices such as duck and shiitake mushroom spring rolls, and octopus carpaccio while main courses feature dishes like miso glazed black cod and almond-crusted albacore tuna steak.
Nobu is probably the most famous restaurant in Malibu. It has locations all over the globe. It’s an extremely trendy place to dine, and the Asian-inspired cuisine is top notch. Chef Matsuhisa’s sushi is among the best in the area. Try the lobster tempura truffle amazu or the roasted king crab with uni or shiso serrano. Nobu is a favorite among finer diners who appreciate Asian delicacies.
Saddle Peak Lodge
Saddle Peak Lodge is a real destination restaurant. It’s actually located in the Santa Monica Hills above Malibu, close to lovely hiking trails. Its 100-year-old history is colorful and varied. It once was a place where Hollywood’s elite could eat dinner in peace. Besides having traditional staples like Caesar salad, pork loin and asparagus, the menu also features some lesser conservative meats such as emu, ostrich, venison and elk.
The Sunset Restaurant & Beach Bar
The Sunset is a bit off the beaten path, but the food is worth it. The eatery sits pretty much right on the sand on Zuma Beach, so the ocean views are tremendous. The décor is simple yet stylish, and the ambiance upbeat. The risotto asparagus and shrimp or the pumpkin tortellini are favorites.
