Picture this – after a beautiful drive along the ocean, spying one beautiful house after another, you pull off Pacific Coast Highway, hop out of your car and start your venture down the pier. All around you, you hear waves crashing, and off in the distance you see a golden glow as the sun sets over the mountains. Below you, dozens of surfers ride the waves. The smell of salt water mixes with sizzling steak. Your tummy begins rumbling and you think what I am to do, here in Malibu? Luckily, you are on the Malibu Pier and Malibu Farm has a table waiting for you.
I had read about this restaurant, well, all over it seems, so during a recent family vacation in Los Angeles, I knew it was a stop we had to make. When you offer a place with stunning views, literally on the water (it’s on the pier after all), you don’t get much resistance from your fellow diners. And boy were we happy with our decision, and so were our taste buds!
Malibu Farm offers fresh, whole foods, or as the founder Helene would say, no fake food. They have a unique menu, and a great list of drinks to accompany your meal. They also have a lot of options for a gluten free diner, like me. Personally, I would recommend the F’Rose (frozen rose) and the skirt steak. If you are extra hungry, because hey the ocean does that to people ;), and looking for an appetizer, the cauliflower crust pizza is a great start to any meal.
Malibu is popular for both locals and tourists alike, so a reservation is definitely recommended. And with a large celebrity clientele, you never know who might be seated at the next table over. Recently spotted here were Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow. If you are in the area ahead of your reservation, in need of something to do, check out the nearby Malibu Country Mart. It’s a cute little square with great shops and sweet spots (dessert for later anyone?).
