“Must see in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012 via mobile

A special highlight was the Grouper Fish, delicious and healthy,light and nicely served. Also the steaks are excellent, it was our third visit the third year on our third holiday in Miami Beach, highly recommended.

The best places outside are along the wall, indoor it is nice too, but only at too warm nights.

“Great food - Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Visited Avalon on a busy Friday night. The service was excellent, and the food was as good as we expected. The only thing that would have improved our experience would have been a table outside ... maybe next time!!

“Great seafood with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I would normally avoid eating at one of the hotels on Ocean Drive but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service at Avalon's. Our food was excellent and beautifully presented. The front porch was comfortable and the street scene entertaining. (One caveat: Ask the price of the specials!)
