A quiet Valentines Day dinner for my wife and I. We are presently wintering in Spain, and Avalon was recommended by friends. I phoned last week to reserve a table. Member of staff ( Spanish, male ) spoke perfect English and reservation made. Glad we did. Arrived this evening. Every table was booked. Warmly greeted, and given complimentary glass of... More

We were there own a sunday evening. Very quiet and with two others we were the only guests. The waiter welcomed us and gave us a nice glass of wine. Excellent menu cart to choose from and great quality of food accompanied by a good glass of wine! Absolutely worth the visit.

It's been four months since I last visited and and business mist be good as the restaurant has been extended, as has the terrace and it's looking fantastic. The food, of course, is the main act and is ever better - the tuna tataki was melt in the mouth delicious and a lamb shank dish gorgeously rich and perfectly cooked.... More

Really good food. Soup and Grilled prawns were our starters, with Steak and Lamb as mains. Good wine also, but little in the way of atmosphere and a waiter who thought he was very important!

Been to a lot of place in Nerja but this was the best. Little bit out of the town but with a taxi easy to get there. All fitted from start to finish and will come here again for sure everytime we are around!

We always eat at the Avalon when we stay at our timeshare in Nerja and it is undoubtedly the best on the Costa del Sol. Superb food, great service and fantastic views, particularly at sunset. Highly recommended.

Another excellent meal professionally prepared by Kevin whereby he may just have surpassed himself this time. 7 courses, each one, tempting the tastebuds to savour every mouthful as so many flavours complemented each other. Thanks Alix and Kevin for giving us a Christmas dinner to remember. You've now set the goal even higher. Chris and Sue

Recommended by a friend for its spectacular views and good. Certainly wasn't disappointed. It's about 1km from the town centre, €8 euros in a taxi. Not the cheapest of meals but perfectly cooked, quality food. We had the pork special dish cooked in red wine and the lamb dish. The home cooked chips as a side order are amazing. Lovely... More

We were a group of over fifteen couples who had sole use of the restaurant for the evening. We started off by having cocktails and canapés on the terrace, from which there is a fabulous view to the east over Nerja. Dinner, pre-ordered from a limited menu ( I had roasted prawns, followed by shank of lamb and then "Everything... More
