Wonderfully attentive service. My waiter was Juan, and he made excellent suggestions. The Bang Bang Shrimp with tzaziki sauce was great! Could have been a larger portion, but the taste was excellent. The 60 day aged Manhattan was outstanding too. The real portion of the meal that will make me return was the Snapper. It was encrusted with Macadamia nuts... More

Selected off open table because we wanted some fine local seafood and our wish was granted. Everything was fresh and well prepared. Prices what you should expect for this quality. Service was efficient and friendly in spite of the presence of a large group. Will return the next time here.

We never go to Miami without making a reservation for this great place. Get a seat on the outdoor terrace. they won't reserve it but if available take it. Great food, service and watching the nightlife go by. Good value for great food!

We also had the croque monsieur, it was as good as in France. We took some macaroons home they were very good. Will definitely return to try more of... More

I went to Avalon for my birthday the first night I arrived in Miami on Tuesday January 10th since its one of my favorite restaurants in South Beach. They have a great wine list and the paella is the best I ever had, I get it everytime I come to the restaurant. Their servers are wonderful and even at the... More

Average stone crabs and crab cake (lots of breaking). Good macadamia encrusted snapper. Great service by Jacob. Wonderful guitarist musician. Great outside table soaking in the vibe of the deco annual street fair.

Followed the recomendation of the tripadvisor, which value this palce as N1 seafood in the city. Disappointed a little. The service was ok, the restraunt was overcrowded. But the food is tasty, but not outstanding. Best seafood place on the ocean I usually imagine with a variaty of fresh fish on ice and a little better assortment, than Lobster+shrimps+salmon+2 local... More
