If you've had your fill of Mexican cuisine and are looking for some BIG cuts of meat with fairly traditional sides, this is your place. While I am always ready to keep looking for the absolute best Mexican, our group as a whole wanted something different. Lots of meaty selections and yes the wine list is extensive and expensive but... More

Superb location, very good Argentinian "parrillada" place. Try THE VACIO (Flank steak)....very juicy, not too tender (which give a special flavor of wild animals that walk a lot of the plains) but delicious. Always ask for the Modelo Supreme beer...very cold

This restaurant was a big disappointment, the food was mediocre for all three of us - the service was not great and it was very overpriced. The wine list only comes in digital form and is not exactly easy to negotiate - we chose a bottle of Mexican wine which was priced at $380 - when the bill came our... More

An Argentine delight that is pricey but worth it (with muy generous portions). Good wine list (though again pricey...dont get confused with the two sizes of bottles). OF course, its the various cuts of beef that stand out, with a 14 oz steak that literally sizzles on the hot plate when it gets to your table (and they tell you... More

As always we spent a very good time with my family. You can easily share the cuts given that the portions are quite generous. Longaniza at this time was fantastic. Very recommendable place!

Great service and delicious food 😃 Great options for vegetarians like beet carpaccio and wonderful salads. Cannot make reservations in advance. Great location near center square of the City.

Garufa was amazing- we enjoyed the staff and excellent service. The dining room is elegant, the steaks were terrific and it offered a wonderful wine selection. We will visit again

We had dinner here with 4 friends visiting from out of town. It was a quiet evening in the restaurant and it seemed that most of the management were sitting at the bar socializing leaving the wait staff unsupervised. There were only three tables of guests in the restaurant with 7+ wait staff and still service was slow...not just typically... More

No one in our party of four are carnivores, so, we ordered pizza. It was a sturdy crust with lots of cheese and the thickest tomatoes. More of a hearty country-style pizza that fills you up before a long journey. The friendly and affable general manager offered a round of mezcal that we later learned was being promoted by the...

Argentine steakhouses are very popular in Mexico. What makes this one different is the decoration and ambience. The steaks are very good, as are empanadas, and wood cocked specialties. There are NO surprises here. You will find what you find in typical argentine steakhouses. Wine selection leans towards wines from the mendoza region of Argentina which pair very well with... More
