Three of us stopped in and had lunch. We all ordered dishes made in the kitchen and were somewhat dissapointed. All I have ever read about this said it was a great place for grilled food. We should have stuck with the grilled items. It would have been better.

We had a wonderful meal here. The owner does all the barbecuing himself outside. Very quaint and relatively inexpensive dinner. The tuna steak was terrific. Bring pesos...no credit cards.

You are seated across the street from the restaurant on a widened sidewalk area. Lovely. The cook/owner is fun, friendly and does an outstanding job. I find Zihuatanejo to be excellent for restaurants but this is one of the best for sure. I had a fish dish while my friend had chicken breast stuffed with shrimp. Both were fabulous.

Read the reviews on trip advisor and was so happy we were able to find the restaurant while walking around the metro area. The food was delicious and the patio was pleasant. They had tuna steak as a special and it was very fresh. Bring cash as they do not take credit cards. The pricing was very reasonable.

We discovered this delightful, family restaurant in 2015. We've returned twice this week. The fish tacos and shrimp tacos are divine, as are the butterflied shrimps in garlic and oil. Another big advantage to dining here is the ease of parking on the street. The restaurant is not in El Centro; it's on the other side of the canal from... More

Mauricio and Veronica were amazing hosts and the food was amazing! It was bbq'd right in front of us and couldn't have been fresher. It's a great family owned restaurant with very reasonable prices. We will definitely be back!

I had read reviews for this and most other restaurants in Zihua, but never remembered the names of those I wanted to try. This is one of those that will stay with you. I ordered fresh tirades (similar to ceviche) and while it wasn't listed on the menu the chef/owner was more than happy to prepare it for me. My... More

It is located on a street with more options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have a small garden on the other side of the street where we located some of our tables, the area is characterised by the fact that most people walk down the road as it is a closed and there are few vehicles, it is very quiet And the sea, the square and the main market are only a few meters away. Restaurant "The Arrayán" account with service of breakfast and lunch hours of 08:30 to 16:00 hours, and from October to April Dinner service stretching up to the 22:00 hours. Attended by their owners. Thank you for your preference! It is a pleasure to serve you!!! Now is open friday and saturday grill dinner.
