Fonda Garufa is situated in a nice part of Mexico City & the restaurant has street side seating on the ground floor. We were upstairs in a nice setting overlooking the street with large, open windows. The bread was amazing. Lovely flavours, sourdough, olive & raisin to name a few. The homemade tomato salsa & herb oil dips were great.... More

This is one of my favorite places - their food is great and they have a really nice terrace in the second floor. They have great huitlacoche empanadas and very nice pastas, and great drinks so its nice to just hang out with friends but also good for a romantic dinner.

We found Garufa while exploring Mexico City. The roof top terrace caught our attention and we went there for lunch. The restaurant is located in Condesa in an area with plenty of restaurants to choice from. It was not very busy when we arrived but as the afternoon progressed it got busy with people, mostly locals, came in for lunch,... More

I was pulled towards this place due to its nice ambience, apparently diverse menu and several good reviews. Although I was not super excited about the food I cannot say it is bad, it's just too simple to come back for it. The location is quite nice, the music playing in the speakers is enjoyable and you can sit here... More

Very good experience having lunch in Condesa. While most places in condesa are either too cheap or too noisy, Garufa have a quite decent environment and you can enjoy very good Mexican and international dishes. Good place for a casual meal if you are tired of classic noisy or touristic places in condesa.

There so many restaurants in the Condessa area of Mexico these days so we just went to the first one where the taxi dropped us off. There were no street side tables available so we were seated upstairs in probably the worst seat at the back. BUT the FOOD and SERVICE were Excellent. Will definitely this place again, many times.
