As other travelers have mentioned, we happened to walk by and Pablo's charm won us. At first we were reluctant. It seemed like a family run hole-in-the-wall place, but looks can be deceiving. The food was excellent. The service quick and the prices cheap. He has specials every day and the margaritas are better than a lot of well know bars in the area. There are only two outdoor tables. The inside seemed dark during daylight. But the food was good and the prices are great.

While walking by one day, Pablo greeted us at the door and handed us one of his pamphlets with the menu on it. He also has a few daily specials on a blackboard out front. A most personable man. So glad we went there a few nights later. A real charming, well cared for restaurant. We sat at one of the two tables that are outside. Lots of ex-pats always walking by, and they all know Pablo and obviously have eaten there at one time or another. Had a wonderful, and reasonably priced dinner. Pablo also serves Chilean wine for 40 pesos a glass, or Bottle for 150 pesos. Once seated, the daughter brought us some delicious homemade bread and and equally delicious tapenade spread. A small menu, but has something for everyone. Beef, chicken and fish. There is also a vegetarian dish which is mashed potatoes with a medly of grilled vegetables. I had that dish, it was delicious, and I'm not even a vegetarian! Now, have already been there twice for dinner, and when Pablo informed us he would be open for lunch now as well, tried that also. For lunch he serves 2 great shrimp tacos for 15 pesos, and a super margarita for 12 pesos. So, if you have not been there yet, at least try it for lunch! Guaranteed you will then return for dinner. A great find in PV. Thank you, Pablo and family.

We happened upon this restaurant by chance, saw the tripadvisor sign, and decided to try it. It is small, charming and the owner and chef,Pablo, gave us wonderful, personalized service. We ordered the fish specials, which were excellent and a very good price (95 pesos). We enjoyed the way the whole family was involved with helping in the restaurant and returned for a second meal. Again the food was excellent and we topped off the meal with the flambeed dessert. It's just a short walk off the Malecon, but nice to be in a quieter setting with nice soft music.

Small, family run restaurant with great food and reasonable prices. Just what you want to find in PV. Specials each day and nice menu choices. I had a delicious mahimahi fish fillet, for just $95 pesos. It was excellent -- and I'm not much of a fish lover. We chose to sit at one of the tables outdoors. Just a short walk from beach.
The whole family gets involved!

We usually vist PV in October to get our condo ready for the rental high season. Zirahen is located close by but has always been closed during the low season. It came highly recommended and fortuneately it was open our last night in town. Very small. The owner Pablo is chef, server and I suspect the dish washer too. His small son is delight ful too.
Our meals were excellent!!! We can't say enough about the food and the personal service.
We would recomment Zirahuen to anyone and the prices are a true bargain.
