Excellent Dinner Choice

Our first night we decided to try, A Fish Called Avalon, and it was the best meal we had the whole trip. I had a delicious cashew encrusted red snapper and a salad. It was exceptionally fresh and filling. The other diners enjoyed their grilled octopus and grouper. A must try for South Beach diners... read more

Restaurant is right on the beach with outdoor seating. Foot traffic makes this uncomfortable to dine outside unless you get a table away from the sidewalk. Food was okay and a little pricey.

White table linens, great service, extensive menu, and delicious, beautifully presented food...who could ask for more? But, there's more. Each evening there's a live band playing salsa and beach music!

We had a great meal at A Fish Called Avalon. We arrived a little early and were shown to the bar for a drink. The cocktails were great. We were seated at a fabulous table on the far corner of the upper patio. It was a perfect spot for watching the activity on Ocean Ave, but also enjoying a private... More

It was so nice to escape the restaurant hawkers on Ocean Ave who try to grab you as you go by with 2 for 1 specials or whatever. We noticed this nice outdoor restaurant balcony with white tablecloths, candles, and an elegant look about it. The prices were a little high but we had a good feeling about it. Luckily... More

Nice atmosphere and setting as well as a friendly service. Food was ok - not amazing though. A bit overpriced for the quality of the food. Deserts were great though.
