We tried the Miami Spice menu which was delicious. But the portions are way too big which is a pity because we left most of the food in our plates but still left the restaurant feeling bloated. I would focus more on the quality and less on the quantity.

An excellent experience. They took my daughter's birthday celebration to another level. She felt special from the time we walked in until we left. Exemplary service, delectable food, exceedingly friendly staff ... it was definitely worth the visit!

A fish called Avalon is a great place to enjoy seafood located in the heart of South Beach. We sat out on the front porch overlooking the strip. The service was attentive and very friendly. There was a guitarist playing great tunes for dinner. The whole fish I ordered was fabulous, full of flavor and tender. We highly recommend this charming eatery to all foodies!

What a great meal! Enjoyed a wonderful meal last night at Fish called Avalon. We decided to eat indoors as it was a “liquid sunshine “ evening in South Beach. Would definitely eat outside if weather was nicer. Our server, Marta, was both pleasant and professional. Service was excellent!
Or dinner included Ahi Tuna Tartare. Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, Sea Bass, Ribeye Steak and Key Lime Pie. All dishes were presented beautifully and delicious. Food temperature was excellent.
Enjoyed a nice bottle of Chery Pie Pinot Noir with meal .
Highly recommend this restaurant if you are thinking of dining in South Beach!
