We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we ate there twice. The seafood dishes are so good, and it is wonderful casual dining with a sophisticated wait staff that just the right amount of attentive so you can enjoy your dinner & know that the next course will be arriving just when you want it.

Late arrival after 9pm but still welcome, indoor sitting preferred although there is more to see outside but the crowd and the heat and the car passing by made it our second choice, seafood risotto, pasta and salmon were all great, no surprise very classical cooking but very well done, slow service but we arrived in the peak hour for...

Don't have much to say, but the food was amazing, unique and delicious. The staff was nice and attentive to us. It's right on Ocean drive so great location, close to the beach. Definitely going back if I want seafood.

Prices are typical of ocean drive. Paying for the view not the food. They have the right idea of "fine dining" but don't quite make it in the quality and freshness.

There were 4 in our party, we were seated on the patio as I requested when I made our reservation. A good place to observe the Ocean Drive night life. The service was excellent. The Mojito's were superb. I enjoyed the lobster - both of them. My wife enjoyed the salmon. Overall a good dining experience.

My husband and I just left the restaurant. I had a fresh and delicious spaghetti alfredo and my husband had a precious and also fresh crusted snapper. The service is perfect. I strongly recommend. We spent more $$ but it worth each cent.

A friend recommended this place and the reception in our hotel also said it was excellent for seafood. We booked but when we arrived, they'd allocated us a table inside - which seemed a bit dire - so we waited for half hour to get an outside spot. The food was really good - my friend and I like lobster... More

Knowledgeable wait staff and the perfect veranda location to watch the Ocean Drive activity. Our food was fresh and innovatively prepared.

If you like patio dining on warm evenings, people watching and quality food, then Fish Called Avalon is perfect. Ocean Drive is a long line of bars and restaurants, so picking a place that's above average can be tough. This one is definitely a keeper. Dine on the patio and if, like us, you get caught in a downpour part... More
