Francisco Ortega Olalla ‘Ayo’, an almost legendary character in Nerja, has been making his world famous paellas the same way since he opened his restaurant in 1969.
Ayo’s is always popular, particularly in the summer season, and it has a great atmosphere. Be prepared to have to wait a few minutes for a table during peak times.
Paella cooked in a huge dish on the barbecue.
Frequent Flamenco Shows.
‘The restaurant at the end of the Playa Burriana is called AYO and for me after 16years of going to Nerja and seeing restaurants appear as well as disappear this one stays. Its the best!
Excellent paella and gambas at a fair price (your get to go and get seconds of paella for free!!) and if you go there keep a look out for the hunkiest waiter in town….. he works there and goes by the name of Alex. he’s reallly friendly and speaks quite good english.
go check him out.. o euhm sorry I mean the restaurant.’
