OMG had my birthday lunch at the Avalon yesterday. Lovely warm welcome from the staff as always. Had booked a table on the terrace overlooking the whole bay, wonderful. My husband and I shared a fish platter as a starter, what an amazing feast, on both the eye and palate. For mains I had the seared Yellow Fin Tuna on... More

We went to Avalon as a group of four and were lucky to get a table on the terrace; this had great views over the town of Nerja as well as the sea and the mountains. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The only downside (a very small one) would be the parking which is very tight when... More

Just returned from a lovely evening at Avalon. It is our first time in Nerja and on day 3 we were panicking at our poor choice in underwhelming and expensive beachfront food choices so far. Thank god for Avalon! The service was great and the food excellent quality ( we had goats cheese and Serrano ham to start, chicken and... More

This was so close to a five-star review. Food is delicious and nicely-presented; service is personable and attentive. The chef offered to prepare my choice of fish gluten-free. However, my gluten-free bread arrived after everyone else at the table had finished the contents of the regular bread basket. And when my serving of potatoes arrived at the table, following my...

Staff were very welcoming. Ample parking. Beautiful setting with good views. Really relaxing venue- menu had plenty of variety for the whole family. The Albariño wine was very drinkable. Food was beautifully made and presented with great local produce. The deserts were well received by all. Would definitely recommend - worth booking.

Although the dinner was nice it was not as great as expected. Especially the starters were okay but not really great. The main course (tuna and pork fillet) were really good and the dessert was typical English with sticky toffee pudding. Good food and nice waiters, great view but slightly overrated

Fine dining without the price tag; it was absolutely perfect. It's our first time in Nerja so mum and I did some research using trip adviser before we came. We booked Avalon months ago as it was number 1 and the menu looked rather appealing. We were greeted by extremely friendly and attentive staff who brought us our requested glasses... More

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.
