romantic get away. A beach where you can eat, drink and relax! Parking can be validated by the resturant but only up to 4 hours. Additional hours, you'll have to pay for it. A bit pricy, however, worth it!

Yes, this is a tourist trap, no doubt about it.
But it is a great little cove on the beach in Malibu.
The restaurant has a snack grill outside, with several groups of tables and chairs to relax with a brew or a bite to eat as you watch the waves or the tourists, in your bathing suit or shorts. There is a short pier that you can go out and take in the sea infused breeze, or look down the coast at the expensive homes.
The Grill serves huge portions in a large white box. I tried Calamari and fries. It was enough for 3 people and cost $13.95. The food was decent, but greasy.
The Grill was manned by a typical SoCal guy and a Russian immigrant girl, both not much for service.
If you come to the outside grill or dine inside the restaurant, be sure to validate your parking before you leave. There is a huge parking lot so usually there is a space, But if you come down here, look at the view, and don't buy something to eat at the restaurant and don't get validation, even if just for 5 minutes, it will cost you over $20 for parking! Ouch!
So you are forced to eat here, just to make the parking reasonable!
What a racket!

A beautiful location but nothing else. The food is mediocre with service to match. As with too many other beachfront restaurants, they rely on their location rather than their food. I don't know why anyone would go to Paradise Cove when Geoffrey's and the Sunset Restaurant are so close unless one simply wants to see where a number of television shows have been shot.

Location, Location, Location! The great advantage of this restaurant is that it is steps away from their private beach. One can eat lunch or dinner inside and enjoy the convenience of having a full service salad bar OR eat outside and enjoy the beautiful California weather. Aftewards you can continue to enjoy the beach sans typical Santa Monica Beach Crowds. This cafe is adjacent to the Malibu Pier. Food is good not great, well worth the expense for the experience!
