Very busy with locals and family groups but got seated without a problem. The rustic cooking of the paella in huge pans over wood was what drew us in. Loved that you could keep going back to get your plate topped up making this excellent...More

Our first Sunday at the resort thought we’d try it but there was a huge queue-says it all really! Found another good place and returned to Ayo the following week. Cracking paella and couldn’t believe that people were allowed to go back for second helpings,...More

We’ve been here before and again and again. Paella served constantly and it’s so well attended and quickly served, its freshly made and freshly eaten. You can watch the chicken sizzling away and the rest of the ingredients added over a blazing hot fire in...More

We went there for Paella and it eas really popular. The Paella was good but the wine price per glass by far the most expensive. Would never go back eventhough the food was good and since they do not take credit cards. Cannot understand that....More

Very popular beach restaurant best known for its Paella. Although tasty, there is relatively little in the way of shrimp or chicken and an over abundance of rice.

Great spot on the beach for authentic paella. Didn’t have any better during our week in the Costa del sol during Feb. 2020. 8€ with chicken and prawns! Big beer for 3,95€. Definitely a hot spot during high season! Lots of restaurants and bars with...More

Perhaps we should have had the Paella. Alas seafood allergy so opted for chicken and anchovies. Nothing special but our friends did say paella was great. Fast service but felt it was all about getting you in and serving quickly. Ok but certainly not memorable...More

To be honest I don’t think they could be relied on for vegan food. We asked for a serving of paella with just chicken, no seafood, and they told us to pick out anything we didn’t want. They were not being rude, just very... More
