This place is famous but that does not make it good instantly. The food was OK. Nothing special. Try the paella and get out, good to stave off hunger but don't expect anything exceptional.

A must place to visit when in Nerja. Located at the far end of Burriana beach you can watch them cook paella on these gigantic pans over a small bonfire then have as much as you can eat for 6 1/2 euros. Try the lamb shanks in tomato sauce with baked potatoes amazing !!

In my perspective, paella must be prepared big portion. Such a big fun of watching paella making scene and unlimited refill your dish. Not salty, not dry, simply best! Worth to drive 2 hours.

We had a nice lunch here. Located at the end of Playa Burriana, with a large terrace. The service was quick - boquerones en vinagre were delicious (raw anchovies), as were the fresh fish and prawns.

Ayo's is in a great location right on the Nerja's trendy Burriana beach. primarily known for it's paella which is cooked in huge, and I mean monster pans over a wood fire. Whilst it is ok there is much tastier paella to be had at other locations, even along the same beach. The rest of the food is pretty much... More

In my opinion, the best paella in Nerja (also the best value!). It always has a great atmosphere and is a favourite for tourists and Spanish alike. Well worth a visit for a long relaxing traditional lunch.

Not sure if there is such a thing a gourmet Paella and can't say I ever tasted any. What you get here is quite lovely. Lots of chicken, pork and shrimp. If you are lucky you get to see AYO cooking and if you are really lucky you get to meet him. We arrived late afternoon on October 6th, seated... More

Having just returned from Nerja for the second time, we have eaten at Ayos on a few occasions and have never been disappointed by the quality of the food. Situated at the end of Burriana beach, this beachside restaurant is the perfect spot for a quick and very reasonable lunch if you are a beach worshipper. The house speciality being... More

Twice we tried to eat here in October on a Monday and Tuesday evening, it was closed. Eventually we had lunch here, the paella is good as is the Spanish omlette. It's right behind the Burriyana beach so perfect location for a spot of lunch. Staff do speak English.

We always visit Ayo's when in Nerja. It is one of the resorts great attractions and is one of the main reasons for returning. The atmosphere is truly Spanish, the food is freshly made and not expensive. The food can only be described as 10 out of 10. Well worth a visit.
