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.

When in Zihua this place is a must. My wife had fresh fish taco's from a tuna that the owner purchased earlier in the day. I had the kabob's and they were perfectly grilled on the restaurants outdoor grill. You actually can watch the owner grill your food in front of your eyes as you sit at your table across the street from the restaurant. We did have some trouble finding this place. We got in our cab the night before and asked them to take us here. They did not recognize the name. It wasn't until the next night when we had the address and cross streets that the taxi driver was able to drop us off at El Arrayan. The owner is very friendly and hospitable. He actually left towards the end off our meal and returned as we were paying. He came over and showed us a freshly caught tuna fish that he had purchased locally. He did let me hold and take a picture with it.

Had a great meal of stuffed shrimp and kabobs. Wish we had found it earlier! We will definitely return in the fall.

We happened to be wandering down a street when I saw El Arrayan, which I remembered from TA reviews. We walked over & saw hummingbirds everywhere & nice/ quiet atmosphere. The tuna tacos were the best I have ever had w cactus & cheese. The chef watches over the grill w such care. The restaurant is family run. Very sweet gem in Zihua!!

Had a wonderful meal here. One of the best preparations of grilled shrimp I've ever had. The chef was so careful, you could tell he cooks with love.

Backpacking through Mexico, this was our favourite eating experience. We ended up going here four or five times. The food was very high quality, cooked right next to us on the grill. The seating area was beautiful and romantic. The service was top notch with a smile upon each request. Definitely going back!
