We ate lunch at Cafe Habana. It's a beautiful location somewhat hidden in Malibu. The decor is very tasteful. We dined outside and started off with the grilled corn appetizer. You must try! For my entree, I ordered the Habana Burrito with shrimp and very...More

Friends took us there as we were visiting. Sat outside and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon drinking and eating. We were four so we indulged in a pitcher and all of us enjoyed their excellent tacos. Large enough for the women to share. Service excellent. Only...More
