We had a lovely lunch at Garufa. Churassco steak and grilled vegetables were delicious. Our waiter and the manager were very attentive. My husband had an after dinner drink called a Carajillo which is Licor 43, coffee and cream. Delicious!!

Garufa is a very good place to dine if you are looking for a high quality steak dinner. It is attractive in side and makes a pleasant night out. I had the Cowboy cut. I ordered it rare, and it came a perfect medium. This is not a complaint, as in Mexico overcooked meat is more common than not. I... More

Ambiance is pretty peaceful, although the times Ive been there ut has been during low season. I highly recommend it if you want a... More

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 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 .
