We don't know how many idiots are needed to screw in a light bulb, but a platoon of uniformed waiters proved incapable of providing a minimum of acceptable service at this overpriced meat restaurant. Slow to take the drink order and then never asked again.... requested water Never came until third request. Large salad arrived simultaneously with large steak while... More

After hearing good reviews we were disappointed. The meat lacked flavor and was chewy. Enjoyed the grilled vegetables and the pasta was flavorful. The atmosphere was stuffy until they opened the windows. The tables around us were loud and we found the noise level annoying. Service was lacking. Sorry to say :( this won't be a go to place.

Garufa , is an Argentinian restaurant in San Miguel . The food we were served was ok at best . I found the service lacking and the meat not as tender as I would have liked it to be . Halfway through our meal the restaurant sprung a leak and water was dripping down from the ceilings , through light... More

Delicious food and great service. Great location, almost next to the city center. I highly recommend it if you are interested in having a great steak.

Garufa is a steak restaurant. It serves good wines and a largely meat based menu and salads and soups. The atmosphere at Sunday lunchtime when it was packed was largely local families. It was pleasant not amazing and to dreadful by any means. I would recommend.

No best stake place in San Miguel de Allende , hands down the best, I do have to visit this place every time in town. And always the entraña is my plate of choice. Other cuts are good too, but won't change my cut. Salads are great, and they have the best mojitos in town .

I really loved Garufa the first two times I dined there so I highly recommended them to friends and clients. On return, it was very disappointing but I returned several weeks later and it was great. A problem here in San Miguel, quality is always hit or miss and there is seldom consistency of dining fare.

This is an Argentinean place, their wine selection is exquisite.. Food is a bit above average and service is good. I would recommend coming here if you are looking for good wines with average prices... Otherwise I think you can find better food somewhere else.

The pizzas we ordered though plentiful were below average. The pizzas consisted of a runny yellow cheese under slices of white soft cheese; the entire cheese assembly was over a thin but uninspiring crust. I had the margarita pizza and my spouse has the Serrano one. The salad included unusual elements in it and was good. Of course everything is... More

I honestly believe that this is a great restaurant, we just ordered the wrong thing! The waiter was very attentive and the décor and atmosphere were great. I loved the modern pop music that they had playing on the sound system. It was our first night in SMA and we were trying to play it safe, which is why we... More
