Very attentive and friendly staff. Seafood Paella was amazing. So much seafood in every bite. Huge portion, description said this was for 2, easily could have shared with another person or two! But true winner of the night was the Creme Brûlée!!! I have travelled all over the world and NEVER had better!!! A must have!!! We will be back!

We had one of the best dinners ever at this glorious restaurant. Well located at the beginning of Ocean Drive, we were seated outside on the terrace. The Bang Bang Shrimp was just divine. I cant stop thinking about it. Followed by more shrimp (well it is a fish restaurant), we had the Shrimp Scampi, also excellent. Excellent service even... More

We went there with young children and the usual thing happened early on - we did spill a glass of water. The staff noticed this straight away and took care of our table within seconds. The food is terrific, try the paella and leave room for the dessert!

Few places offer a greater selection of fine dining than Miami Beach. But alas, fine dining in Miami comes at a steep price. And often the portion size at the top tables are, well, underwhelming to the point of being un-American. So you pay a lot and get a little. That's not so bad, if you get true quality. But... More

We had very tasty meal; crabcake as a starter, lobster and tuna as main course. It was delicious. We had a table outside and Andrew is an excellent service minded waiter who cared for us all evening and an excellent example of a perfect waiter. Absolutely recommendable.

Just had a super meal at this restaurant at the Avalon Hotel. A haven in an otherwise noisy and boisterous South Beach. It was recommended by our hotel- The Betsy which itself has a very good restaurant. The fish at Avalon was fresh and well presented and the portions were large. It's not cheap-$200 for two including wine and the... More
