The wonderful views from the elevated terrace were a very good start to our lunch. The very nice and helpful owner was a bonus, but the best thing about the Avalon is the brilliantly presented, excellent food. I would highly recommend eating here.

Wonderful view - beaches and hillsides. Wonderful food - try the salads, they were mouth watering. Top class customer service from Alix and her team. Definitely worth a visit.

When we entered the terrace to be shown to our table we couldn't fail to be in awe of the view across the town of Nerja. From our elevated position the main coast road resembled a spear piercing the heart of the town, with the edge of the Mediterranean to the right, sweeping round the beaches and the Almijara mountains bordering the left. Stunning!

With a start like this, the food was going to have to be outstanding if the scenery was not to be the star of the evening. Sorry, I'm getting carried away.

Our starters, smoked cod croquettes with horseradish for me and crispy lamb on a bed of humus for my husband. Wonderful! For main course we both chose fillet steak medallions with shiitake mushrooms in an oyster sauce and some really yummy chips. Clean plates all round. To finish, I selected sticky toffee pudding with ice cream. The house wine was a young Rioja red. To summarise, the most beautiful scenic surroundings, best gastronomic experience in town.

I have to say i have been to many restaurants and i love the Avalon Alex ,Kevin Dawid and al the other staff made you feel so welcome nothing was to much trouble, if people would take the time to watch Kevin prepare the food they would understand how good he is as he takes pride in every dish that comes out of his kitchen and no i am not related i just appreciate nice hard working people and good food
we ate there a few times on our short 5 days from tappas to full dinner

Alix is great, funny ,charming and all round good company if Kevin gets a chance he will come out and have a chat with you but he was really busy when we dinned there but he still made the effort
i read some reviews and just wonder did they complain if it was that bad ??? as i am sure Alix and Kevin would have sorted it for them
well worth a visit and keep it up Alix ,Kevin and all the team
