Topanga tomorrow with dogs?

I'm taking a girl and our two dogs to Malibu tomorrow. On the way home I'd like to spend rush hour eating an early dinner -- her dog doesn't like to be left alone in the car.

Where's is there to eat in Topanga? I went to Froggies years ago and found it annoying.

Also, I've never spent much time there any interesting shops or places to visit?

Hope you can help!

  1. Are you really committed to eating in Topanga? There are better choices in Malibu:
    Malibu Seafood
    Taverna Tony's
    There's also a new restaurant on the landside of PCH, near Dukes, but I can't recall the name.

      Okay good idea... Maybe 7th Ray for lunch and Malibu Seafood for dinner. I wonder what the dog policy is?

      I've had restaurants in Malibu allow me to hide our dogs (20 lbs each) under the table when they were mostly empty.

        I don't know their dog policy, but Malibu Seafood has just picnic tables on open or enclosed patios so it doesn't seem like it would be a problem.

          I think I remember seeing a "no dogs on the patio" sign there. But I could be wrong. It's definitely worth stopping and crossing the street to look.

          Don't get the oysters or calamari. They're crap. The Fish and chips is okay.

          Bob Morris' Beach Cafe in Paradise Cove has decent, though not spectacular, food, at a fair price. But you mentioned 7th Ray so maybe you're not worried about price...

            I think that's the place that let me hide me dog under the table -- it was early.

            Neptunes Net hates dogs!

            But I'll ask very nicely at Malibu Seafood... And see what happens.

              We ended up at Malibu Seafood for lunch -- nothing special but had a nice time. People who ran the place we're very rude but the diners were all very friendly and was a mix of types (tourists, forestry guys, rich old people). Doesn't allow dogs either and had signs everywhere.

              Instead of dinner just caught the sunset from the outside bar at Moon Shadows -- I like how you're really outside with the waves breaking below.
