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.

“best fish tacos EVER”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

This restaurant is worth visiting while in Zihuatinejo. My wife and I ate dinner here 3 of our 7 nights! We couldn't stop going back for the incredible fish tacos - the best I've ever had!! The ingredients were all so fresh.

The restaurant is tucked onto a relatively quiet street and while it is missing an ocean view, the owner's friendliness definitely makes up for it. We found ourselves staying after dinner just to chat with him and enjoy the dozen or so hummingbirds that frequent his feeders.

“Welcoming and Delicious!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

This place is wonderful to say the least! My boyfriend and I visited this past summer and it was by far our favorite place to eat. It is a family run business so every time we went in we were able to interact and have the best experience! The family even helped us with our struggling spanish! The food was just as amazing as the family itself! I fully recommend dining at this restaurant.

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.

“Lovely cafe, people and food!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

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.
