Their website maintains an up to date menu. The choice is not massive, however I prefer that as it proves that they rely on good, fresh and local ingredients, plus everything is cooked to order. It's a fab restaurant and... More

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.
