We went there because of the Tripadviser reviews and were not disappointed. The food is the best we've had in Nerja. Tartar was excellent. The staff were friendly and professional. The view from the terrace is lovely as well. Beautiful place I love to recommend.

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.
