We ate out on the terrace and was perfect for people watching yet quiet enough to talk.

Always risky to go back to a place you truely loved the first time around...for us, it was something like five years ago but we were not idealizing our first experience since this one was as good or better! Don’t miss out on the keylime pie, as it’s the best we ever ate anywhere in the world including Key West!

Experience was wonderful at A Fish Called Avalon. Music was perfect, service was just right and food was fantastic. We had the Cremant Rose Brut from Alsace and it was terrific — long-lasting effervescence, slight yeast flavor, red fruits on the palate. Tuna tartare was great — aggressive, yet very balance in flavors and the tuna was fresh. Sea food risotto was wonderful and the chicken, yum. And if you want to taste a real key-lime pie, this is the best I’ve had outside of Key West. We will be back.

Restaurant is on Ocean Boulevard so expect the busy street traffic and cars passing close by. They do have a 3 piece music group which provides good atmosphere. The service is flawless. Great attention from our waiter and the manager. What makes it stand out is the food. Every course was 5 star. We went twice in our 3 day visit in South Beach.

Good quality food and service for an Ocean Drive establishment. My fiance and I each ordered a salad and the Paella for two. All were of high quality and very tasty - though they use orzo (pasta) and not rice in the paella. It did contain a whole lobster, scallops, shrimp, squid in a slightly spicy sauce. Before the meal they offered toasted bread with hummus and butter. The hummus was also outstanding.

Of course this being Miami on South Beach it was overpriced and you have to read your bill carefully - since the tip is added to the total - though unlike other places, they tell you when the bill is presented. I'd return. It was a good meal

The food didn't deserve the reputation or the price. Feels like it used to be good, but became a victim of it's own popularity and now everything is rushed and the quality has sufferes. $19 for two scallops that were overdone, mussels were overcooked. Feels like it is taking advantage if tourists. Skip it.

Took my husband and brother here for his first dinner in Miami Beach. He wanted fish and this restaurant did not disappoint! Excellent service, quiet dining streetside. I had the crab leg appetizer and it was very filling. They forgot my vegetables but it was all ok. Very good chaiprinias!

As much as we enjoyed our meal our waiter was robotlike. I couldn’t even tell you his name because he never introduced himself. He was not at all personable.we had much better waiters at other places. As much as we enjoyed our meals we won’t return because there are better places we can visit and have a better experience. Our bus boy was a doll
And took care of us when we couldn’t find our waiter when I spilled my water or wanted a plate. He never offered to debone my whole fish.

This restaurant was amazing! The food, service, and atmosphere are lovely. I had the Frose as a drink which was delicious. Went out as a group of 3 and ordered the Seafood Paella (for two) to share. It was so much food! We didn’t even finish it. Our waiter was very friendly. They were very attentive.
