Located in the Malibu Country Mart, near the Malibu Lagoons, Taverna Tony is a beautiful, light-filled Greek eatery with white stucco walls, red tile floors, exposed light oak ceiling beams, and blue-and-white-upholstered seat cushions and banquettes—reminiscent of an authentic Greek eatery.
The menu at this popular Malibu, California restaurant features the naturally healthy Mediterranean cuisine of the Greek islands. Popular items include moussaka (Greek eggplant lasagna), grilled wild-caught salmon, shrimp sauteed in fresh tomatoes and grilled lamb tenderloin. You can start your meal with hummus, tzatziki (cucumber and yogurt dip), a Greek peasant salad and a host of other Greek classics. The staff here bakes all the bread fresh daily.
There are also a number of vegetarian options on the menu, all of which can be prepared as vegan, if desired. Make sure to save room for a square of baklava for dessert! A full menu of Greek and California wines is available to accompany the meal.
Taverna Tony has won a number of awards, including the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and Zagat’s Best of the Neighborhood (Malibu) Award.
Taverna Tony is open for both lunch and dinner daily. Entrees range from $16 to $49 for both lunch and dinner. Outdoor seating is available, and there are belly dancers and live musical entertainment on the weekends.
