You can eat out at many restaurants in Avalon and Stone Harbor, but Cafe Loren is one of the few where you can dine. The menu has changed little over the years because so many guests appreciate the consistent quality that has made this restaurant the top choice on 7 Mile Island. We usually dine at Cafe Loren three or... More

We spend a great deal of time in Avalon but never tried Cafe Loren. My husband booked it for my birthday and it was a delightful evening. It is a little place that has been in Avalon for years. It has a very pleasant vibe and the food and service are excellent. My husband had the halibut and I ordered... More

Enjoyed a evening here with three couples. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We were lucky to get a table. We tried to make a reservation a week before but were told that they were booked solid for the week. We were lucky that someone must have made other plans and a table opened up. I am... More

Six of us come here every year for dinner, while we're spending a couple of weeks in Stone Harbor. It is the best restaurant in the Avalon/Stone Harbor area. Excellent, well-prepared food in a comfortable setting. BYOB, but that's not a problem as there's a liquor store next door, so the wine list is what you make it and you... More

Every dish was flawlessly executed and presented making this one of my most memorable meals down the shore. All 4 of us relished the flavors, textures of all their cuisine. This is a keeper.

Thanks to other reviews on TripAdvisor and Open Table, we knew to bring our own bottle. Once we found parking and the entrance, we were seated immediately at our reservation time. Very professional and attentive wait staff. The menu was extensive with excellent additions. We thoroughly enjoyed the Black Bean soup but the portion was too big for an appetizer... More

Frequented many area restaurants in the area over the many years we have vacationed in Avalon. No other place comes close to the quality and innovative flavors and presentations. It is more expensive than the average but definitely worth the extra cost. Never have I had a bad meal in the decades I have visited. Not a place for kids... More

We had dinner here last night for the first time with another couple. The lobster appetizer was fabulous, as were the steamers and beets/goat cheese app. Scallops were amazing, lamb chops, salmon, and grouper special were perfect. Service was excellent. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant, and we can't wait to go back and bring more friends!

The food here is dependably good--I had the bronzino, and my husband had the filet on potato rounds and the seafood bisque. The filet was cooked perfectly, and the bronzino was flaky and flavorful For the first time, I was disappointed with the bisque--not as smooth and creamy as it's been in the past. For dessert, we had the ginger... More
