Best oceanfront restaurant in SoCal - any suggestions?
Hi Fellow Foodies,
Summer is coming up and I'm looking for an awesome beachfront restaurant that serves great food —preferably a place where you can walk from the sand to the restaurant to eat or any place cliff-side (e.g. Geoffrey's Malibu) or close to the ocean would be fantastic.
Some places I've ate where the restaurant is right on the sand is:
1. The Beachcomber Cafe (Newport Coast, CA)
2. Paradise Cove Beach Cafe (Malibu, CA)
3. Las Brisas (Laguna Beach, CA)
Please let me know if you have any more suggestions. I'd love to hear it. Thanks!
Chart House Malibu? Better food than Paradise Cove but, Paradise Cove beats all on beach locales!
Chart House Restaurant - Malibu

Duke's Malibu and Back on the Beach in Santa Monica both on the sand.
21150 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, CA 90265
Back on the Beach
445 Palisades Beach Rd, Santa Monica, CA
The Lobster. One Pico at Shutters. Catch at Del Mar.
The Hungry Cat - road level, but you can see the ocean across PCH, and a one minute walk gets you thru the tunnel and onto the sand.
The Hungry Cat
1535 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028
1 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405
Del Mar Cafe
712 S Del Mar Ave, San Gabriel, CA 91776
The Beachcomber and Las Brisas both have amazing views, but the food is nothing to write home about at either place.
We always go to Duke's. The food is always good and the staff is helpful and friendly. The view is spectacular because you are right on the beach.
