Catalina Island Restaurants
If you are visiting Catalina Island or have recently moved to the community, then you will be interested to know where the best restaurants are located. Let’s start by saying that the food here is highly diversified.

Other Catalina Island restaurants offering a fast meal are Avalon Seafood – Fish & Chips and Eric’s On The Pier.
If you want Mexican food, then check out the family friendly Mi Casita on Claressa Avenue offering traditional Mexican breakfasts, lunch and dinners. Coyote Joe’s on Catalina Avenue is another favorite local spot for authentic Mexican dining.
