One thing we get asked often at our LA limo service and party bus offices is: what are some ideas for best ocean-view dining in the Los Angeles area? There is not any more glorious stretch of coastline in America than the seemingly endless miles of California-shore that extend from Santa Barbara in the north to Orange County in the south. These regions are more popular than ever for ocean-view dining amongst our Los Angeles limousine customers. Having served Southern California now for more than fifteen years, we are proud to be the top rated provider of Malibu wine tours as well as limo service in LA.

With its unobstructed ocean views, flower-covered stone patio and larger indoor fireplace, this restaurant is the perfect romantic getaway. With plenty of Italian- and French dishes including pastas, spaghettis and more. On a Malibu wine tour, many clients decide to check out their walk-in wine cellar.

Cheesecake Factory, located on Mother’s Beach in Marina del Rey, is another popular limousine destination for ocean-view dining.
