All what's said about this restaurant is so true: modern European food influenced by North Africa is sublime. Service is professional and relaxed. Fantastic terrace with stunning views, also inside the restaurant, not to forget the open fireplace for wintertime.

The Spanish and English chefs at El Avalon pride themselves in providing modern European food that is influenced by their extensive travels in North Africa and South East Asia. Service at El Avalon is professional and relaxed. We have a fantastic terrace with stunning views, and a cosy restaurant with an open fireplace for Wintertime.
