Go here if your group wants paella. Everyone orders a plate for 7.50E and you can fill up on as much as you like (Cash only).. Generous portions of seafood and chicken, you can watch the paella made right in front of you - if...More

Not the best food in Nerja, but it is cheap if you are eating paella. The paella is not as good as when we first tried it in 2002 as the chicken and seafood are very sparse now. It’s worth going once just for the...More

I hAd sardines which were fabulous whilst my wife had the buffet style (eat as much as you want) paella and it was excellent. The building looks like it’s not changed since the 60s and it’s well worth a visit.

Good food, good staff. Many years the same staff. Low prices, quick service. Crowded with guests but always a good seat and nice view on the paella eating people.

We all had the paella which was nice and the price was good. We all would have appreciated some additional seafood in the paella mix. Lovely location on the beach watching the people walk by. We would go again if we are in the area!

We have been here before but it's been a while since our last visit. When there for Sunday lunch on previous occasions there was always a great buzz & a sense of occasion as Ayo used to cook the huge paella in the open air...More

This Burriana beachside restaurant was recommended to us for the paella and did not disappoint. I had the paella at €7.50 with as many refills of your plate as you like included. Very large portion on plate and everybody was going back up for seconds....More

Lovely paella piled up high and sold cheap - if you haven't had enough go back for free seconds. This establishment has been going for decades, in that time they have learned a thing or two about paella. This isn't a fine dining experience but...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
