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...More

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...More

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...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!

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.
