62 minutes. That is how long it took from order placement to delivery of the meal. The food is nothing special that you could not duplicate at home with your own barbecue. Waiters are nice, but helpless.

7 friends out for dinner on a Wednesday night. We had delicious food here. Friendly service. Unfortunately we had to wait well over an hour for the food to be served.

My wife and I decided to eat breakfast here on our last day in Zihuataneo. We walked down from our hotel room at Villa Guadalupe and took a table on the street. The street where the restaurant is located does not get much car traffic, so it is pretty laid back and is quite colorful. The proprietor's nephew was our... More

We had the most wonderful evening and dinner! The food is cooked on a BBQ grill right in front of you, by the owner/chef Mauricio. You feel like family from the moment you sit down. At the end of the evening we found out there was a taxi strike and we wouldn't be able to get a cab back to... More

Nice local restaurant, easy to get to, right along side the canal. I have tried their mahi mahi fish tacos and sopes, enjoyed both.

We stumbled on this restaurant while exploring the Zihuatanejo area one afternoon. We ordered the shrimp tacos and were pleasantly surprised. Very good. We had 2 different young men wait on us and they were both charming and friendly. We will definitely be back next year!

This is an amazing family run resturant! By far the best fish tacos, and the fresh fish wrapped in bacon was insane. The owner and his family are truly special. This is a must for anyone traveling in Zihautanaho.

Great food. Great drinks. Great atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat. When we arrived the waitress noticed I was very hot and immediately brought over a fan and plugged it in. I thought this was very sweet of her.

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.
