It was a chilly evening and on googling " restaurants with a log fire" Avalon came up. Reviews were good so we booked a table and headed there. The young waiter gave us a very warm welcome and yes, the log fire was burning. The food was delicious and freshly prepared and My pumpkin option was imaginative and tasty. Ok,... More

After a previous visit 12 months ago, it's great to know that the Avalon continues to keep up its excellent standards. We ate dinner with friends and the meal was a culinary treat with puddings to die for. The outside terrace has fantastic views of sea, mountains and the town of Nerja. This restaurant is highly recommended for special occasions... More

The hotel was within walking distance to our apartment. The food was lovely and beautifully presented. The sangria was very pleasant to drink. Well worth a second visit.

It is such a treat to go to Avalon, the food is cooked and served with love .......... There is a big but, the plates are cold and if the food is standing waiting to go to the table, the meal has to be eaten quickly. But still love it .

Twelve people attended a friends fiftieth birthday evening. The food was fabulous and the service very attentive. Everything I had previously heard about this restaurant was correct, the prices are higher than usual but compensated by the excellent food and service. Definitely a place to go for special occasions.

Celebrated my wife's 65 birthday with friends at the Avalon, we chose the Avalon because the number 1 and 2 restaurants were closed. Well we are glad we did because we had a fantastic evening. This restaurant is a little more upscale than the usual Spanish restaurants in the area and prices are a little higher as well. It it... More

I wouldn't call this a typical Spanish restaurant, however for me the principles are all there. The menu was based on good quality ingredients, the execution was fantastic and each mouthful was full of flavour. The Yellow fin tuna and Iberico ham deserved a place alongside any Dali. Beautifully presented and savoured to the last. The Goats cheese was as... More

Service at El Avalon is professional and relaxed. We have a fantastic terrace with stunning views, and a cosy restaurant with an open fireplace for Wintertime.
