The best in Zihua!!!

I went to Coconuts last Saturday with my boyfriend for my first time, some friends recommended it and we were hesitant to try it. We did try it and we are so glad we did, this is the best restaurant in all of Zihua and Ixtapa combined, hands down. The food was excellent, I had the Coconut Shrimp... read more

Great service, every reply from the waiter contained "it's a pleasure". Head chef gave us a sample of the grilled tuna which was good. We all had the coconut shrimp. It was hand breaded and the sauce was good. However I would not call it 180 pesos good. The 40 peso margarita was in what appeared to be a small... More

This little gem has very good food at really reasonable prices. Family run, the chef does a great job, and also can whip up some speciality items as well. Try the fish tacos, and get an order of guac on the side.

Beautiful family run restaurant, serving the best seafood in town. Amazing Mahi Mahi. Dining tables under the stars, very relaxing. Perfect Mexican dining experience

It was an amazing dinner experience. Dining outside, with small lights, a special appetizer made daily, food and drinks were all wonderful. Dessert - chocolate ice cream over frozen strawberries was to die for.

We had lunch. The help and owner are very friendly. 4 of us had dinner. One meal (chicken grilled) was overdon. The owner was very good about the obvious issue and gave all a free after dinner cocktail. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

A very reliable choice for a great meal at a very reasonable price. This family run restaurant features Dad working the grill and a surprisingly relaxing street-side location. Lots of plants and low-ish lighting. My one wish would be to turn down (or off) the American 80s music and replace with local tunes.

El Arrayan is our Not To Be Missed restaurant while we are in Zihuatanejo! Mauricio does not disappoint. This year we brought another couple with us for dinner who were equally impressed. Our favorite dishes are the mixed kebab, grilled shrimp with garlic and the mahi mahi. Grilled with love! Enjoy this gem on Calle Adelita!
