Had a great meal tonight at El Arrayan. We've now had breakfast, lunch and dinner here over our last 3 trips to Zihua. All have been very good. Mauricio has been consistently hospitable and genuine during our visits to his restaurant. We had the grilled tuna for dinner and it was excellent. Medium rare and Mauricio seared it beautifully with... More

This restaurant was close to my motel and I wish I would have discovered it on my first day of vacation. I would have enjoyed dinners here much more than I did. My first experience was walking down the street before they were ready to open. I was offered to sit and share a plate of finger food and beer... More

You want reservations as the food is good and prices are cheap enough that the tables are always full.. We asked on our morning walk and were able to pick our time for the evening. Excellent grilled fish--we had grouper and the tuna. Desert was very good--lime pie.

We ate here twice during our stay - once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both times we were very happy with the meal and the staff. If you like shrimp - try their bacon wrapped shrimp...you won't be disappointed!

Our last day of vacation we walked down Playa la Madera and stopped at the busiest restaurant. We had to wait for a table. As we waited for our food we just watched how some of the food was being prepared and cooked on the BBQ right in front of us. The smell of the food on the grill caught... More

Sensational food and very friendly service. We had dinner here during our vacation last year, and we've already returned twice this week. Fresh tuna steak was awesome but really everything is excellent.

The moment we were seated at our beautiful table we became part of their family. Our meals were beyond fabulous! Bacon wrapped fresh caught tuna was delicious. It was so much fun to watch the food being grilled right in front of us. The portion size was just right. This was our first meal at El Arrayan and we look... 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.
