Paradise Cove Beach Cafe is a delightful treat for visitors and residents of Malibu. Located at the beautiful Paradise Cove Pier, they offer breathtaking views, incredible service, delicious food and a casual atmosphere.

A reservation at the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe does not hold you a table but puts your party on a priority waitlist. Guests with reservations could potentially wait up to 1 hour with the reservation, depending on how busy it is. Reservations may check-in 20 minutes before their reservation time so we can start preparing your table. In the meantime guests may enjoy the beach and get some drinks and appetizers from our to-go shop. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these strange times.

    Food is terrible, tasteless and overpriced! Service is not great except the guy who helped me with my parking that was not validated correctly by my server. The only good thing is the atmosphere on the beach and the people watching.

    This is a sensational location, right on the beach in Malibu. It’s not inexpensive but the food was very good, the portions very generous, and the location superb. Ask for George as your server if you have the chance — he was great. Loved the clam chowder in a sour dough bread bowl (with enough soup to refill the bowl). And the calamari was also terrific. I want to go back to try more of what’s on the fun and bountiful menu!

    Overrated tourist trap. Beach small and not great and no ability to walk up the beach to check out the houses as indicated on the website. Service very perfunctory and staff not particularly helpful. The location of the restaurant is beautiful but overall it was just fine. Not the beach club experience I was expecting.

     Paradise Cove Beach Cafe in Malibu, California, is a delightful beachfront restaurant that offers a quintessential Southern California experience. Stunning Views: Paradise Cove is known for its cinematic views. Imagine smelling the fresh sea air and gazing at the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean with a cocktail in hand. It’s truly magical! 🌊🌴🌞 Iconic Location: Featured in everything from a Beach Boys album cover to the 2015 ‘SpongeBob’ movie, this beach is a Malibu hot spot. Take a romantic stroll along the pier, where Robert Redford and Demi Moore reconciled in the 1993 film ‘Indecent Proposal.’ 🚶‍♂️🌅 Delicious Food: Indulge in a wide selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Whether you’re in a bikini, wheelchair, high-chair, or anything in-between, they have something for everyone. The Crab Shee soup—was divine! 🦀🍲 Next time you’re in Malibu, consider visiting Paradise Cove Beach Cafe. It’s not just the best beach in Malibu; it’s the best beach in the world! 🌊🌴✨ Enjoy the magic of Paradise! 🏖️🥂

    Lots of food. Delicious nachos. We ended order two orders of nachos with beef. I believe we really didn't need to order dinner.

    I made a reservation at 1:30pm 1 month in advance . They would not let me park the car in the parking lot. They said it's full. We had to park at PCH and walk over 1 mile!. I think that for a holiday they need to let only people who have a restaurant reservation or have an outside company do Valet like they did in the past.
