We also had the croque monsieur, it was as good as in France. We took some macaroons home they were very good. Will definitely return to try more of... More

I went to Avalon for my birthday the first night I arrived in Miami on Tuesday January 10th since its one of my favorite restaurants in South Beach. They have a great wine list and the paella is the best I ever had, I get it everytime I come to the restaurant. Their servers are wonderful and even at the... More

Average stone crabs and crab cake (lots of breaking). Good macadamia encrusted snapper. Great service by Jacob. Wonderful guitarist musician. Great outside table soaking in the vibe of the deco annual street fair.

Followed the recomendation of the tripadvisor, which value this palce as N1 seafood in the city. Disappointed a little. The service was ok, the restraunt was overcrowded. But the food is tasty, but not outstanding. Best seafood place on the ocean I usually imagine with a variaty of fresh fish on ice and a little better assortment, than Lobster+shrimps+salmon+2 local... More

We wanted to have a high end meal, in a romantic and intimate setting, on Ocean Drive for a reasonable price for our last evening in Miami and we were not disappointed. There is a small bar area if you would like to have a cocktail while waiting for your table. We sat outside to people watch a bit. Our... More

We were grateful to find this restaurant after running the gauntlet of the cheap food outlets along Ocean drive. The fish is absolutely superb. We had octopus to start which was tender and delicious. Between us we then had Crab encrusted grouper, wild salmon and scampi. Every dish was excellent and served simply with vegetables. We sat outside and there... More
