  • I thought that was heavenly! But has very narrow beaches and houses on the sea, the only thing that looks is the rear portion of the garages! It is the most ugly of the West Coast. The secret is to go Santa monica coronado. That is a tremendous paradise

  • parking expensive, but Malibu is very expensive. We can park on the PCH but very busy. The restaurant at the edge is nice, with good view on the ocean. 
  • Parking was overpriced for the amount of time we were going to spend so dropped a star but we dropped lucky parking on the road and walked back. Just so relaxing. So different to Santa Monica and Pier...  more »

  • Great views when you sit on the roof. Got the salmon with eggs which was really good. Wish the brunch menu was a little bigger. Fresh orange juice is worth trying as well.
  • 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!
  • Excellent food. Great value. Excellent service. The best food I've had in southern California during my trip so far. Very healthy and tasty. They even give you blankets if you dine outside in the pier. Great job guys 👏
  • 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.
  • The pier itself is nothing special, especially with so many other things to do in Malibu, but it does play host to Malibu Farm, a wonderful spot to have breakfast or lunch before setting off on a canyon hike. There are two locations at the start and end of the pier, both serving the same menu. Grab a seat outside to take in the coastal views amid sounds of the waves on shore. Food is well prepared farm-to-table cuisine. We'd highly recommend the Lobster Breakfast Burrito and the breakfast pizza looked very interesting, too. The fruit juices are quite refreshing as well. Once you've eaten too much, head up to any one of the parks or nearby Getty Villa for a long stroll.
