  • We've been to most of the piers in Southern California. I think most of the others are just as good. This does have a restaurant out in the pier and another at the base of the pier but on a summer Sat...  read more »
  • If you want to catch the beach life of Los Angeles this is a great spot with food and drink on the pier and the most famous surf spot in the region adjacent to the pier looking north. 
  • Must stop to truly take in the beauty of Malibu! So much to take in from mountains, the ocean, surfers and locals! It was truly breathtaking! You can park along the highway, grab lunch/ dinner at the ...  read more »
  • My favorite place to eat in Malibu- the food is organic and locally grown. Which is very apparent in the quality of the dishes. It's Malibu of course, so everything is overpriced..... But It's not terribly pricey as compared to some others. Whenever I'm there in the LA area, I always drive up and go to Malibu Farm Cafe (the one at the end of the pier). The actual restaurant is adorable inside but if you cant manage to find a seat in the small area, the chairs and tables outside are all great as well. Since the weather is almost always nice, I usually choose to sit outside. The view is top notch and makes the food even better! lol I love to get the organic beef hamburger with the mashed broccoli and always always always get the green juice mix. IT is hands down the best fresh juice I've ever had from anywhere. The unique green apple flavor is so delicious!!!!!!! You'll have to pay to park unless you have a handicap parking pass, which is free (i think they still do that). So parking might be another added expense, but its a nicce walk down the pier and the food is really unique and delicious. Definitely worth the trip out there for lunch! Or if youre already in the area, I recommend it since its not too pricey for Malibu or for an organic restaurant. I can understand that it would be considered too expensive by others though when not used to the area or this type of organic offerings. But still one of the cheaper meals you can get out at Malibu hehe And in my opinion, one of the best!
  • I was a fan, good food and some nice alcoholic beverage choices. Decent price, not crazy crazy crowded and a celebrity sighting too. Great Views.
  • Decent meal here. You'll pay for the location a tad, however the food was still good. Very busy, be prepared for a moderately quick line. Limited seating. Organic, California cuisine. Limited but well composed beer and wine options. Worth a stop if you're in Malibu for a day and want to have a casual meal overlooking the Pacific.
  • Just like any pier but the view is really good. we reached pier when the sun already set and temperature was nice too. Loved the visit!! Parking is the struggle try to find parking on the streets for free.
  • Great food at an unbeatable location. A little pricey but you are paying for the location and the food and the prices are better than you'll find anywhere else in Malibu.
