No trip to Nerja is complete without an Ayo's Paella. The food, the prices, the staff, the location, are all excellent. There's nothing better after a hard day on Burriana beach ... Thank you once again Ayo!

Busy chiringuito serving its famous paella. I think the recipe has changed since we last ate here, as I couldn't taste saffron in the rice. First paella sent back as only lukewarm but the replacement was piping hot. By the time we were finishing eating...More
