We dined at the terrace for lunch on our second day there (read about my experience in Malibu Beach Inn here if you haven’t^^). I didn’t expect much from the restaurant because I imagined people mostly come here for the view. But surprisingly, the food was…amazing.
I finally had gazpacho (Spanish cold soup) for the first time since I left Spain, and it was the perfect choice under a sunny weather. The fish taco was amazing too- it was slightly raw in the middle, and I loved how fresh it tasted. The squid was our favorite— very chewy and just spicy enough to add some flavor. We also ordered a plate of Mediterranean platter: delicious but probably unnecessary…because in the end both of us were a little too full…
Note to self- always order one dish less than I initially wanted. Somehow we almost always underestimate the portion of food these high end restaurants have.
If you live in LA or have the chance to visit, I highly encourage you to drive for half an hour or so and dine here even if you don’t want to spend the money to stay for a night. Really, when I dined here, I literally said to myself: “there’s nothing better than this….” I mean, eating delicious food with the person you love under the perfect ambiance by the beach with exquisite service…if there’s something better than this, please do let me know! 😉
When we went around 11:30 a.m., there weren’t too many people- most people were leaving after breakfast, or hadn’t gotten here for lunch yet. So it was perfect! For a while I was pretending I owned this terrace (haha too much daydreaming).
Anyways, go there if you have a chance! Really really recommend it. Hope I’ll revisit sooner than later! Oh and don’t forget to click to enlarge the photos if you didn’t…they look better bigger. 😉
