In the beachfront land of the rich and famous, aka Malibu, visitors are able to get a taste of power and prestige by dining at one of Malibu's top-notch restaurants. Malibu's culinary scene often focuses on local ingredients sourced from farms in the Malibu area. Organic, farm to table and locally sourced are common terms you'll see in reference to Malibu's best restaurants. Some of the most acclaimed restaurants in Malibu are ones that have the lucky position of being right by the ocean, in many cases it will seem almost as if you're dining on top of the ocean as the cliffs that line the Malibu coastline provide high vantage points for restaurants to border – and in the case of restaurants on the lovely Santa Monica Pier, you will be dining right over the waves. The best oceanfront restaurants in Malibu have open air terraces that are always the first tables to get nabbed. However, that's not to say that the often fancy indoor dining areas don't provide an excellent atmosphere as well; most restaurants have large windows that face the ocean so indoor diners can still have ocean views. In addition to oceanfront dining, the best restaurants in Malibu also include gastropubs, shopping center eateries and seafood cafes.
