We love the informal, friendly, cheerful, family atmosphere of Ayo's and start every trip to Nerja by maintaining our "tradition" of lunch there sharing gambas pil pil, ensalada de La Casa, pane, and drinks muy fresco. Needless to say we placate our "Ayo habit" from time to time after that including Sunday's for Spanish style roast pork, anytime all you... More

We came here when visiting my parents and ate here probably 3 or 4 times. Mixed reviews from people but then that is human nature. We all have different tastes and some of us have travelled around a bit more and had better or worse experiences. My view was that it is nice to see them make the Paella in... More

Nothing special I'm afraid, noisy, big and very crowded, all in all, chaotic! Paella nowhere near the best ever as claimed. And the old favourite, charged for bread we never received, won't go back.

As with other contributors we attended for one of the Wednesday evening paella events, the restaurant was packed. The atmosphere was very good and the flamenco dancers added to the enjoyment. We opted for the 'eat as much as you like' paella - not the best we've tasted; slightly unusual taste to the rice and very little meat/fish on the... More

I am embarrased to say I fell for the ALL YOU CAN EAT paella lunch on a beach at a tourist trap. This meal was terrible, terrible, terrible. Not a thing to recommend this experience. Tripsadvisor needs a new category called HORRIBLE that can only be used a few times in the life of a reviewer. This would be HORRIBLE.... More

Have been a couple of times to ayo on Wednesday evenings as our children want to see the flamenco dancing. Booked early and got a great seat. Food ok and service ok. Unbelievably busy.

This was highly recommended by a friend for the food and atmosphere although a good atmosphere it lacked quality and finesse. Resembled more of herding cattle then a restaurant. Seating was cramped and service slow, we visited just after midday and had to queue, the paella was good (but no more) with as much as you could eat - definitely... More

Went to Ayo to what people are standing in line for every single day, and if you come around 2pm the place is SUPER crowded and it is a struggle to get a table. The paella comes at a price of 6.75€ and consist mostly of rice approx. 2 prawns and 2 pieces of chicken. I have tasted a fair... More
