This was a new part of town for us. Mauricio, Veronica and their son are great hosts and take pride in their menu. The arrecharia was the tenderest and tastiest we've ever had. Mauricio must pound the steak thin and soak it in his special marinade for the day. The coconut shrimp is grilled fresh and served in Veronica's mango... More

Every time we are in Zihuatanejo and walking Adelita we tell ourselves to try some place new. At least once (okay, maybe twice) during our stay we end up here for their amazing ribs.

Good food, great service in a very quaint location in Zihuatanejo personally attended by the owners. This is one of my favorite restaurants when I want to eat Mexican food.

We just had a quick breakfast here and enjoyed it a lot. We tried the French toast, fruit plate and sincronizada. Everything was delicious and the service was top notch. The owner came out and visited a it and was very friendly.

Stopped here for dinner after passing by in the morning and saw that one of the specials of the day were barbeque ribs. The grill is right on the street. Cute little tables and chairs across the street from the restaurant with lots of plants around. Our group ordered the ribs, shrimp with cheese and bacon, arracherra, and fish tacos.... More

El Arrayan is a very friendly, warm family run restaurant in an outdoor garden setting on quiet Adelita. It is one of our favourites for years. They have a delicious grill menu of meat, fish and seafood as well as tasty starters, salads and desserts.

Great restaurant! Family run, great drinks, amazing food and cute decor. Located on a quiet street by the canal, the owner grills, his wife mixes cocktails and his sons serve the tables... The hospitality is quintessential Mexico. We went back twice this vacation and will definitely go back next time we are here! Thanks so much!

We ate here our first night in Zihua this trip and ended up going back once again with another couple. I ordered the whole grilled Red Snapper and it was the most delicious fish I have ever eaten. My husband ordered the rib eye, which he said was very tender. The table area is across from the restaurant and it's... 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.
