We are staying in Malibu but playing golf one day at the Trump course in Palos Verdes. We won't be finished till very late afternoon and would like to stop for dinner on the way back to Malibu. Ideally would like to eat on the water, seafood would be the first choice, a good wine list would be a plus! Something nice but not fancy for four hungry golfers.

    Did you already consider and reject the restaurant at the Trump golf course? The views there are spectacular, and the food actually not bad.

      Concur.....the Trump course (formerly Ocean Trails) has some of the best views in So Cal and the more casual of the 2 restaurants is quite good and not very expensive.

      Not a Michelin star-rated, but Neptune's Net on PCH is fun in Malibu. The seafood is good and abundant. The prices are reasonable. The view is awesome.

        If you don't plan on driving around PV to the southwest and through Redondo Beach, but rather going northeast via San Pedro on to the 110 Harbor Fwy then I can recommend 22nd Street Landing Seafood Bar & Grill over looking the marina there. Upstairs with a nice setting, but casual and comfortable. Our service has always been top notch and the drinks and the food are quite good. If you like crab louis they have an excellent one and their bucket of clams with plenty of freshly baked foccia bread to soak up the abundant "clam liquor" is a great deal. They feature many fresh fish that they will prepare in different styles, including a simple grilling which I like.

          In the last few weeks I've eaten twice at Saluzzi, an Italian place in the strip mall at the corner of Hawthorne and PV Drive very close to Trump's. It has a great ocean view (yes... even though its in a strip mall!) if you sit outside, and they have heat lamps for the evening.

          They have pretty good food and I believe a fairly decent wine list. There are a few seafood dishes on the menu, including a dish i had called "Fettuccine Cleopatra" that has scallops, shrimp, a small crab arm, in a creamy sauce spiked with pink caviar. It was quite tasty, although it was $30 at dinner time. I think you'll be more than satisfied with the food and view!

          Check out their website:

          P.S. The owner, Joe, is a great guy. One the second time i went there with my parents, Joe sat with us for about an hour. He joked and talked with us about his food and his family. It was really a treat that made our experience more than just a dinner.

            You must try Admiral Risty's on P.V. Drive (no more than 5 min. from Trumps), the views are beautiful and the food and service old school. Make a reservation and ask to sit in Rocky's section. He has been there forever and is a hoot. Their Chippino is excellent, spinach salad simple but delicious, and the side orders are included not an extra. Sometimes they have King Crab specials. Ask what is fresh and you can not go wrong. Oh the bread and chowder, NOW I must go!!!
