El Arrayan: Touristy or not?
Can someone give me the low-down on whether El Arrayan is touristy and overpriced or not? 100% of the reviews I've read say the food and service are great- that's no question. But many also stay that despite the good food, that it is touristy (always filled with Americans and other tourists) and overpriced.
We have been many times and don't find it too touristy or too expensive. Mixed fairly hip crowd of locals and non-residents, great atmosphere and wonderful food.
The website has the menu with prices http://www.elarrayan.com.mx/home.php?...
They don't seem out of line for a "good" restaurant in Puerto Vallarta but of course that's not the same for a local Mexican neighborhood restaurant.
Probably the reason all the tourists are there is because it is consistently ranked in all of the guides as the best Mexican restaurant.
