“Best thing is the view”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Having had this restaurant recommended to me I was rather disappointed. The food was just Ok - not at all exciting. Actually, I prefer my own cooking! I like to be inspired by a restaurant meal and surprised by the flavours and this was really quite ordinary. I don't even remember what I had now! A great meal is never forgotten. The view however from the terrace is wonderful looking across at the mountains with the picturesque village of Frigiliana in the distance and the coast on the other side. I wouldn't rush back.

“Great food with amazing views”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

We have been coming to Nerja for almost 20 years & this is our first visit, just wish we had heard of this place sooner. Great views, fab food & good service. Not cheap in Nerja terms but so worth every penny!

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

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.

“First time and we were not disappointed.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

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.
