5 Spots for Fun Fine Dining

BY Lydia Martin | August 11, 2017 | Feature Features

Satisfy any craving at one of these perfect, Pacific restos in Malibu.
Mastro's Ocean Club

Mastro’s Ocean Club
This elegant steakhouse combines classic Malibu dining with magnificent ocean views surrounding the window-lined dining room. Start with drinks on the sunporch before sinking into the plush dining room chairs for a perfectly cooked filet with truly divine creamy lobster mashed potatoes. 18412 Pacific Coast Highway, 310.454.4357

Nobu Malibu
Like a true Angeleno, acclaimed chef Nobu Matsuhisa scored a second home in Malibu—and this locale is as stunning as its food is sumptuous. The indoor/outdoor space quite literally abuts the Pacific, and signature dishes abound, with the yellowtail sashimi and chocolate bento box making perfect bookends to a thrilling dinner. And for a taste of morning delight, Nobu serves breakfast Saturdays and Sundays. 22706 Pacific Coast Hwy., 310.317.9140

Café Habana
Get a taste of the New York dining scene translated in a cool, casual Malibu way thanks to owners Sean Meenan and Rande Gerber at this glossy slice of retro-hip Havana at the Malibu Lumber Yard. A spacious patio is adorned with bougainvillea, a slatted-beam roof and reclaimed wooden tables, where guests indulge in Cuban sandwiches, killer salads and the best chicken burrito around. 3939 Cross Creek Road, 310.317.0300

Geoffrey’s Malibu
Escape the mundane madness of life and explore this Pacific paradise. Adorned with waterfalls and tropical plants, there is an incredibly relaxing (and romantic!) ambience. Every table provides guests with a panoramic view of the ocean, and the menu’s California-style international cuisine is perfectly paired with the tides. 27400 Pacific Coast Highway, 310.457.1519

Malibu Farm Pier Cafe
After hosting star-studded dinners at her Malibu farm, chef Helene Henderson has recreated the experience at the Malibu Farm Pier Cafe. Located at the end of the Malibu Pier, this beachside eatery is the go-to spot for organic breakfasts, lunches and dinners. For a full-service meal, head to Henderson’s eatery Malibu Farm Restaurant at the start of the pier, which is open for lunch and dinner. Highlights include breaded mustard chicken with roasted veg and the grilled skirt steak with black and white rice. 23000 Pacific Coast Highway, 310.456.1112
