Enjoyed our visit to Malibu and the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe.  Wow...so much history here as the Cove has been featured in dozens of movies, commercials, music videos and television shows.  This former mobile home park (still some mobile homes around area) was once a fisherman's hangout then became a place for locals, tourists and celebrities to hang out.  Heck even Marilyn Monroe and the Beach Boys spent time here.  The place is massive with organized parking, attendants and guarded entrance that makes sure everyone pays to park.  Once you enter there is a throwback to a 70's style beach club.  Photos adorn the walls and take you back in time to see Malibu and its people.  Wish I would have taken more time to view all the photos and memorabilia inside, but we requested an outdoor table on the patio and were quickly whisked outside to tables that actually sit on the sand.  There is plenty of shade and the patio has dozens of heaters to warm you if it gets too cold.  The crowd on this day was mostly tourists enjoying large drinks and even larger plates of food.  The food here has the "wow" factor with presentation and size.  Prior to ordering we walked onto the beach to view the cove and pier.  Pretty cool set up and place to chill out.  Back to the menu and we were overloaded with choices.  Everything looked amazing and there was a ton of choices on the menu.  From Lobster to Tacos and BBQ, this place has something for everyone.  We immediately saw gigantic orders of Guacamole and Chips and Calamari hitting several tables around us.  The Guacamole looked like at least 10 avocados.  Massive amount that I don't think the three of us could put a dent in.  We ordered the Crispy Calamari ($19.95) and it arrived in an oversized Martini glass that was pretty cool.  There was a ton of Calamari with French Fries on the bottom.  Good taste but we probably did not finish have of this.  The Spicy Corn on the Cob ($11.95) was terrible. Corn was not sweet and the flavors of the butter, parmesan, cheese and spices was horrible.  We all ordered a Cup of Chowder ($8.95) and this was a mistake.  Not because of the taste, the Chowder is excellent but even the Cup portion was huge and we all began to get full before our entrees arrived.  Between the Chowder and Calamari I was so full and then came the World Famous Tacos ($23.95).  I ordered Carne Asada, Shrimp and Fish Tacos and they came on a gigantic planter with Beans, Rice and large portions of Guacamole, Sour Cream and Pico de Gallo.  Tacos were filled to capacity and large but the flavors just did not impress me.  Probably would not order this again.  The Red Crab Penne Pasta ($32.95) was also large but lacked a lot of flavor.  We had already made the decision to order the Mile High Chocolate Cake when we first sat down and looked at the menu but after eating we just could not fit it in.  After lunch we hit the beach out front to take photos and just take this place in.  Pretty cool spot if you ask me.  I would return to eat here again and would also like to enjoy one of their huge adult beverages.
