Geoffrey’s – Malibu, CA
So I had a day off of work and was trying to think of something to do. I get so few off I didn’t want to waste it. I was going over several hiking trails, and found Escondido Canyon. Of course you need to eat before you hike, and luckily I found this amazing place next to the trail called Geoffrey’s.
While you may feel a bit underdressed in your hiking cloths, jeans and t-shirts are just fine for lunch. When you pull in, you will need to valet your car (unless you can find parking on PCH). It’s only $5 and included on your bill.
When you walk through the entrance to the patio to be seated, breathtaking panoramic views of the Malibu coastline hit you on all sides. It was a perfectly clear day and you could see all the way to Palos Verdes, Catalina, and the Channel Islands.
Enough on the view – the real reason you go to a restaurant is to eat, right? You won’t be disappointed. I ordered the lunch filet with vegetables. Extremely tender and perfectly seasoned, the filet was accompanied by a exquisite sauce.
If lunch is any indication of dinner, I would imagine it would be absolutely amazing. I’d love to come back for a sunset dinner on a full moon to enjoy the view and great food.
