Tonight's meal at Avalon was wonderful. We shared some prawns to start with followed by Seared Tuna & Lamb Shank. Then I went for Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert & hubby had chocolate mousse. By far the best meal we've had in Nerja. Would highly recommend! Staff were very attentive too. Great experience all round.

a few km from Nerja towncenter, direction Torrox opposite Hotel Marinas de Nerja. Nice view from the terrace. I recommend the slow cooked shank of lam, and the chocolate mousse dessert is fantastic.

My daughter dined here last year and had a really great experience - the food was wonderful and faultless and her boyfriend is a chef! So, on that basis I was really looking forward to our night at Avalon. The setting is stunning and the welcome was warm and friendly. The amuse bouche was tasty if a bit underwhelming! Our... More

We had a Sunday lunch here. A cold, but clear day so we sat, in our coats, on the terrace overlooking Nerja and the mountains. The food was excellent, well prepared and served by attentive waiters.

Very nice meal ; everything all home made and you can tell the staff take pride in what they do - shows through the quality of the food and service. Great views of the sea and mountains - quite faultless we thought .

Stayed here for a wonderful week of de-stressing. Hosts Alix and Kevin offer a warm welcome; clean, characterful, spacious rooms with good-size bed, brilliant walk-in shower, your own terrace and great views of the sea and sunrises - Avalon is like an eyrie overlooking Nerja. The breakfasts, lunches and dinners are amazing - great flavours and techniques. The staff are... More
