Description: 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.

We discovered this jewel of a restaurant while looking for the no-longer existing Sixtinos Restaurant. What a find! Mauricio and his wife serve up the best food in Zihuatanejo at prices signicantly less than other upscale restaurants in the area. From the fish filet, arrachera steak, enchilada verdes, shrimp omelet and much more, this is our new favorite place to eat healthy and beyond-flavorful cuisine. The service is no less fantastic.

Thank Dan and Ellen K

The food is of average quality but the marina location is nice. Given what we experienced at most of the places we ate at in Ixtapa El Arrayan was much better than average. Prices are reasonable but not cheap.

We spend several months a year in Zihua, and watch restaurants come and go...along Adlita street for sure! El Arrayan is a few years old,and we took note of it right away because of its lovely painted walls of bright yellow and green, plants everywhere, very clean, and a most engaging owner. Mauricio is always sharing a new fruit (upon our last visit) or a new salsa, a new candy, or a new coffee bean to try and he always speaks to clients with interest. His wife is the main cook, I believe, and she is warm and welcoming too. Their little son was trying to ride his new bike on Three Kings Day...a very nice little family. We have had breakfast and lunch, and now they have crepes for dinner..sweet or savory...which we will try soon! They also operate next door, a small Internet space, all very clean and tidy.
It should be noted that this restaurant is NOT in Ixtapa but Zihuatanejo!

This is a fantastic restaurant run by extremely friendly people who speak enough English to understand your food order. We ate breakfast here most mornings as they have a great fruit plate with yogurt and granola on the side. I ordered freshly squeezed Mardarin Orange juice. It was without pulp and was a delicious treat at only 25 pesos. Their chicken enchiladas are excellent too. Everything we ordered was great; french toast, eggs ranchero, and eggs with bacon.
We sat in the garden area across from the restaurant and enjoyed watching the hummingbirds and the beautiful flowers.
This restaurant has just opened for dinner and offers crepes and salads. I am sure they will be very good. They are located near Hotel Irma near downtown Zihua.
