“Great food, wonderful service”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our first night in South Beach we had dinner at A Fish Called Avalon. We were a little late for our reservation, so our table location was not the most desired as we were placed right in front of the hotel front desk, but that is the only negative we had. The food from start to finish was wonderful and our service was even better. I would return every time back in South Beach.

“NYE dinner - good food, good service, classy clientel”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our 2nd time at AFCA, for NYE, it is much classier than other restaurants on Ocean Dr. The salad might have been plated a little too long, but our sea bass was cooked delicately cooked to perfection. With pre-fix you never know about service, but ours, Torbjorn was so great we added tip to the already 18% added - he was so kind to advise us, and we said, we know! With fireworks right across the beach - this is a reasonably priced place to be for NYE.

“Great seafood in South Beach”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We read the reviews and thought this sounded like a good spot for dinner. As others said they were pretty much the only restaurant without a hawker and that alone impressed us. They took reservations but accommodated us and the food and service was great. I had seafood risotto and my wife had snapper. Both were excellent. Of all the restaurants along Oceann Ave this is one wholeheardtly recommend

“Fish Called who?”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Ive been 4 times and every time seems the food slips a notch. Not worth the $$$$ and lets not forget the mandatory TIP of 18% ! Not worth the money people, food and service was ok.

“Awesome seafood!”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

My wife and I walked by the restaurant, checked out its menu and got a table right away. Food was really tasty and fresh. They had some really interesting specials which I tried and enjoyed. The service was excellent also. Will come back for sure.
