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

Had a great meal of stuffed shrimp and kabobs. Wish we had found it earlier! We will definitely return in the fall.

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.

Had a wonderful meal here. One of the best preparations of grilled shrimp I've ever had. The chef was so careful, you could tell he cooks with love.

Backpacking through Mexico, this was our favourite eating experience. We ended up going here four or five times. The food was very high quality, cooked right next to us on the grill. The seating area was beautiful and romantic. The service was top notch with a smile upon each request. Definitely going back!

Ate here for dinner with a group of nine. Seafood, beef and chicken are most of the offerings, everyone found something they liked. Ask for the catch of the day, probably caught that morning. The fish and errachera were both very delicious (not over cooked). The chef knows how to cook. The restaurant is located on a quaint street, some... More
