“Late lunch with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were welcomed on arrival and offered a table outdoors which had a beautiful view of the beaches surrounding Nerja. We choose a meat platter to sharte which was fabulous with some of the best tasting food we had in the area. The desserts were unbelivably good. I had "Kevin;s bread and butter pudding with fruits of the forres" - superb taste. Mt wife had "sticky toffee pudding" which was so light and resembled that served at the "Sharrow Bay" the home of this fabulous pudding in the Lake District. If anyone had told me we would have enjoyed these desserts with the ambient temperature being nearly 30 degrees i would not have believed them. Must be viisted and tried to be believed.

“Hen do and a friend's birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Absolutely fantastic night spent in the Hotel Avalon for a friend's birthday while staying in Nerja on my hen do. The food was some of the best we had ever eaten, the owners and staff were more than welcoming and had baked a birthday cake especially for us. We couldn't fault anything and if we are staying in Nerja again we will definitely be re-visiting this restaurant! Thanks guys for a really special night :-) x

“just popped in.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We just called in for a drink, late on a Friday evening and the owner made us very welcome. The diners were finishing their meal and we could watch the flamenco show from the steps. A fabulous view. I will try it for dinner next time I am in Nerja.

“30th Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

My family and I were on holiday in Lake Vinuela last week and Wednesday 19th June was my sisters 30th Birthday. After being told by some expats that Nerja had some excellent restaurants and a bit of researching on Trip Advisor we decided on El Avalon.

We weren't disappointed! We had a table on the terrace with lovely views overlooking the sea. Everything on the menu sounded great and it tasted fabulous too, the presentation and quality of the food kept us wanting to order more so three courses later... we were all very full and its so reasonably priced too! The chef was lovely I asked him if they could put a candle in my sisters dessert, she was so impressed when it came out the candle was more like a sparkler which topped off a perfect evening.

The staff couldn't do enough for you, really impressive and if we are ever back in the area we would definitely go back.
