Lovely family run restaurant. Grilled fish/steaks and the best flan ever! Seating is outdoor on both sides of the street. Mom cooks, dad grills, and the kids serve. Super friendly!

This restaurant is worth visiting while in Zihuatinejo. My wife and I ate dinner here 3 of our 7 nights! We couldn't stop going back for the incredible fish tacos - the best I've ever had!! The ingredients were all so fresh. The restaurant is tucked onto a relatively quiet street and while it is missing an ocean view, the... More

This place is wonderful to say the least! My boyfriend and I visited this past summer and it was by far our favorite place to eat. It is a family run business so every time we went in we were able to interact and have the best experience! The family even helped us with our struggling spanish! The food was... More

Arrayan is a three or four time visit when visiting Z. The owners are wonderful people and the food is always delicious. Try it for breakfast lunch and dinner.

Visited here while on our honeymoon. A really neat setting, family run restaurant, with excellent food. The owner was out front grilling our food and stopped over to visit with us, and the service was great!! Definitely recommend.

Best fish tacos, and bacon wrapped shrimp was delicious. If you go before sunset you can watch the hummingbirds buzz around. Get location as we enjoyed people watching and the chef is a master at the barbeque. Very freindly and family run. One of the best meals I have ever had in Mexico.

When in Zihua this place is a must. My wife had fresh fish taco's from a tuna that the owner purchased earlier in the day. I had the kabob's and they were perfectly grilled on the restaurants outdoor grill. You actually can watch the owner grill your food in front of your eyes as you sit at your table across... More

We happened to be wandering down a street when I saw El Arrayan, which I remembered from TA reviews. We walked over & saw hummingbirds everywhere & nice/ quiet atmosphere. The tuna tacos were the best I have ever had w cactus & cheese. The chef watches over the grill w such care. The restaurant is family run. Very sweet... More
