Eighty-one-thousand vines grow across Malibu Family Wines' 90-acre vineyard, producing eight varietals in total, including cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, and malbec. Once bottled and corked, many of the vineyard's Semler and Saddlerock wines end up at the tasting room in Los Olivos, a homey space with indoor and outdoor seating, occasional live music, and a large wooden tasting bar where customers are free to smell, sample, and swirl away. Those who enjoy the wines can rejoice knowing there's more where that came from—the vineyard expects to increase its vine total to 100,000 in the near future.
Featured on Good Day LA and ABC, as well as the occasional celebrity snapshot in Star, chocolatiers at ChocolateBox Cafe cloak tongues with artisan chocolates, gelato, and hot cocoa crafted with Belgian expertise.

Whether nabbing a gift box of pralines, sniffing out a truffle as an afternoon snack, or arranging a catered wedding or event, chocolate fiends can get their fix in the form of finely, ornately decorated candies and gourmet hot chocolate.
Borne from founder Aharon Klein's love of grilling and seasoning ocean-fresh seafood, Fish Grill sizzles a menu of wraps, pastas, and sandwiches starring juicy fillets of fish amid old-fashioned nautical décor. Chefs seal in succulent flavors by searing every fillet over smoky mesquite at a clean 1,000 degrees⎯roughly the temperature at which oceans melt. Each tasty dish of trout, tuna, salmon or ahi arrives tailored to the diner's tastes and prepared under the 3,300-year-old guidelines of kosher dietary law.

Even in a city where celebrity sightings are fairly common, Taverna Tony is exceptional for its sensory feast. Once you’ve taken a seat at one of the tavern’s handsome wooden tables, it's difficult to keep your eyes from wandering. In one corner of the dining room, an A-list couple might be sharing a plate of charcoal-grilled baby octopus. In another, a graceful belly dancer might be twirling before a live band, her elegant costume sparkling in the glow of warm lanterns. These are just preludes to the main event, in which a server lights a pan of saganaki cheese on fire and magically saws a baklava pastry in half. If a quiet meal is more to your taste, skip the dining room and head straight to a lush garden patio where sunlight trickles in through rafters laced with ivy. Such a setting perfectly complements the restaurant’s popular Greek Feast, a selection of 15 house specialties that includes hummus, homemade sausages, and roasted lamb. If you inexplicably still have room for dessert, it’s hard to turn down a sweet house-made yogurt praised by the LA Times.
