Vacationing from Atlanta and stumbled across this gem of a restaurant. By far the best arrachera in San Miguel. Don't second guess this choice.

We go to Garufa every time that we visit San Miguel. (at least once) All of their steaks are always cooked perfectly. We especially like the entraña. It melts in your mouth. Their side dishes are also wonderful. We love the creamed spinach and the salads are very unique. The portions are large and we usually end up sharing dishes.... More

My husbands spaghetti shrimp dish was really nice. The white shrimp cream sauce was not overly rich it was actually on the lighter side. With a sprinkle of chili peppers and a spoonful of grated parmesan cheese it was superb! We both LOVED it!!! NOW.....my dish was a send back! I ordered the lasagna and unfortunately the chef went overboard... More

I used to be a fan of Garufa, but tonight I felt really bad about ' service , I walked in with a party of 4 and the waiter was going to help me, and some gorilla who was standing outside with a radio asked me if I had a reservation, I said no, and he said "sorry. We can... More

Ate dinner here recently and was not impressed. It is a beautiful place. Service is very good. Prices are high for San Miguel. Now about the food. My brother did not like his steak. He said it was stringy and over cooked. My tuna dish was just OK. My wife had a pasta dish which she said was "pretty good".... More

A great Italian restaurant in San Miguel de Allende. We shared a a delicious Salad with asparagus wrapped proscuitto and cashews. Then we had cheese ravioli's topped with parmasian. Then a great glass of Malbec red wine. Topped off with a very strong cup of Americano coffee.

We did not research on this restaurant but instead were looking for somewhere close to the square. It was raining fairly hard and we simply asked a person at the ATM for a suggestion. This was around the corner. The wait staff here did not speak much English but the menu was in English and we got along just fine... More

The chicharones de ribeye should not be missed. This dish consists of a cubed ribeye (including the wonderful fat) cooked in a cast iron pan with thick slices of onion. It is brought to the table in the pan it was cooked in and placed on a wooden trivet. It's melts in your mouth and leaves you begging for more.... More
