Went to this Argentinian restaurant on business. We loved the cheese and the sausage appetizers. My steak was excellent, loved it. I ordered my steak medium however it was served rare. I tasted it and loved it so I ate it as served. The service was OK and the atmosphere was quaint!

We stayed in Zac for three nights and this was the worst meal we had! We were a group of four and when we arrived there were only two other tables occupied (one in each section of the restaurant). We were led to table stuffed in a corner, right beside the kitchen/desk and I asked if we could sit in... More

We went on the recommendation of our hotel staff! Beautiful walk through the old city! We ordered steaks for dinner, mine was ordered medium rare but cooked rare, the waiter quickly put it back on the grill and it was perfect! The ribeye was very big! Had clam chowder that was a bit too salty, and a great big bowl,... More

What can I say? Tired, disinterested service, very poorly cooked steaks. Mine was raw at the sides and overcooked in the middle. Started well with nice dips and accompaniments followed (too quickly) by a sashimi style tuna in soy dressing which was delicious. The problem was that the steaks (fatty, lazily prepared) arrived when my son was only half way... More

It has a variety of "empanadas" that each one is better tan the other. The meat is of very good quality, soft and cooked to your taste. Enjoy your lunch or dinner with some... More

In Zacatecas most of the restaurants are small. Its capacity is reduced and therefore it is necessary to make a reservation. The hotel staff recommended Garufa.The restaurant is located in a park closed to the traffic of cars. We made a reservation to lunch. We chose beef empanadas ( great flavor, the dough was great), mediterranean salad ( to much... More

Garufa is located right behind Hotel Meson de la Merced and is lovely for a more luxurious lunch! My boyfriend and I ordered an appetizer (the Argentinian sausage), a salad of grilled vegetables, as well as a Margarita pizza to split. The appetizer and the salad were lovely, but the pizza was a bit undercooked. Got all of this plus... More

We went a little early, before they had formally opened I think, so the atmosphere was a little lacking (they had to set up the dining room while we were eating and things seemed a little hectic). However, in general, this place was amazing. Wonderful food with diverse flavors I had never tasted. The pizza dough was disappointing, but the... More
