Eat at the Coral Beach Cantina in Malibu, CA

A great little restaurant located between Point Dume and Zuma Beach on the Malibu coastline is the Coral Beach Cantina. It is located on the short hill between the two on Pacific Coast Highway and the fare is Mexican. Hidden behind a wall of plants it is right next to Zuma Sushi and has both indoor and outdoor seating.

Until this past weekend, Ashley and I had completely forgotten about this place. We do not think we had been there in about 8 years – our loss. Which in itself, sounds kind of funny since two of the guys I spent a lot of time with in college absolutely loved the place – for good reason.

So, last Sunday we reacquainted ourselves with the Coral Beach Cantina in Malibu. Heading down to it at 12:30pm, we were pleasantly surprised that given the 85 degree weather in Malibu there was not a wait of an hour. Sitting down, we were quickly brought out the chips and salsa. Pretty good, just as I remembered.

Then looking at the menu, I was pleasantly surprised. The prices were more reasonable than I anticipated. So low, that several of the Mexican restaurants in the Thousand Oaks area charge more for similar meals. The Coral Beach Cantina could charge $3-5 more per plate and still do well, at least in my opinion.

I had one of my favorites, the carnitas plate and Ashley had a carne asada burrito. We were both satisfied in our meals, both in food quality and value.

If you are cruising through Malibu, checking out the sun, stars, and cars – consider the Coral Beach Cantina, you will be glad you did!
