Sad that for late night drinks, escaping from rain we were charged nearly $20 AUD for a Margarita & coffee. Never to frequent again. Short term gain, long term loss

We've eaten at this restaurant many times over the past 4 plus years with various results and tonight was the low point., The staff mixed up the orders, brought main courses before starters, brought the wrong starters, main courses were cold, steaks were toughest that I've ever tried to eat at 450 p per steak. Tried to bring this to the attention of the manager but "none was available".. will not return.

In one word... WOW! This place really exceeded my expectations... It was simply AMAZING... The ambience, service, drinks, food, etc was really special... The Empanadas and Beef Soup were great Appetizers... the Tomahawk was out of this world!

We had not been back to Garufa in a couple of years. The steaks here are exceptional. They are well prepared and tasty. The sides including sliced tomatoes and a couple of kinds of potatoes and creamed spinach are a great complement to the steaks. The service is attentive but not intrusive.

San Miguel used to have a couple of steakhouses but all of them for one reason or another have gone by the wayside - not Garufa.

This is not an inexpensive restaurant - expect to pay premium prices - but you will get premium food and service.

Visited on Wednesday. Brought a bottle of wine. The restaurant is a participant of VIP. Under the VIP website Garufa advertises that on Wednesday and Thursday nights their corkage fee is one peso. Upon our arrival I confirmed with the waitress that the corkage fee would be 1 peso.
We ordered tenderloin (medium) steak, chopped salad and a baked potato which we would split. The steak was served but was undercooked and very rare. We asked that it be put it back on the grill. Asked if we could have the salad and was advised that it was on its way. It finally arrived along with the baked potato but no steak. When the steak (cooked very well done) arrived the potato was cold. The service was very disorganized and very poor.
When we received the bill, we were charged a 250 peso corkage fee. We protested to the waitress without any satisfaction. We asked to speak to the manager but without again any satisfaction or resolution. The waitress continued to argue that the corkage fee was correct regardless of the VIP advertising. We will not return to this establishment.
