“Lovely lunch on the terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We called into Avalon restaurant for lunch on our way to the airport and had a lovely meal on the terrace.
We both had the gourmet paninis, served with salad and the best chips we have ever tasted. Followed by a delicious portion of homemade chocolate cake served with real cream and a good cup of coffee. Food and presentation are always first class.
The views from the terrace are stunning and the owners are also both friendly and welcoming.
This restaurant/hotel deserves to do well and we will continue to visit and recommend.

“Lovely food and terrific views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Located just outside Nerja above the Tropicana roundabout. The views of the bay and the mountains are stunning. The food is very good and well-presented. The staff were welcoming. One minor niggle was the time between courses - nearly an hour. Perhaps more staff are needed. However we will definitely return

“Avalon restaurant with style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Wonderful view, clean and stylish. Nice meal.
A reservation seems to be best.
Placed in Punta Lara, about 1km outside Nerja.

“Great views and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Another great meal at Avalon. Friendly staff and lively setting. My only complaint ......huge portions! So not really a complaint then. The home made pate was wonderful an the fish perfectly cooked. We'll worth a trip out if town - 6 euro taxi ride if you are not staying in Punta Lara or theMarinas hotel. Will be back.
