The Malibu Pier Restaurant has one of the most picturesque views of any restaurant I have been to. Malibu Pier Restaurant should not be confused with Malibu Farm Cafe which is situated at the end of the pier (although they have the same owner), the Malibu Pier Restaurant offers majestic views especially at sunset.
While Malibu Farm at the end of the pier has a focus on local and organic foods, Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar at the entrance of the pier offers a more upscale atmosphere. The Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar is situated on both sides of the pier. You have the choice of sitting inside a dining room or on the other side with more of a lounge feel on the edge of the the Pacific Ocean on the pier.
Malibu Farm is open Monday to Friday from 9am till 4pm and weekends from 9am till 8pm and is more popular for breakfasts and lunches while Malibu Pier Restaurant is open Monday to Friday from 11am till 9pm and weekends from 9am till 10pm and focuses on more formal meals with amazing views.
