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

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

Ordered a bife de chorizo. The first one I was served was so salty I could not eat it. Replaced to problem but under cooked. Again fixed no problem but but by then chips were cold. Good wine Norton Malbec. Meat was very good. Service average and atmosphere very good.

This is one of the few top notch restaurants in Zacatecas where there is a smoking area in the restaurant in the area facing a classy bar next to the restaurant. This restaurant is a chain in which the first restaurant was opened in Aguascalientes about 115 kilometers away from Zacatecas and established a restaurant in this state. Steaks are... More

Had a very pleasant dinner. The meat cuts were correct for an Argentine stake and it was cooked as ordered. The wine selection was quite decent and well priced. The staff pleasant, even too obviously anxious to close out the evening, but that was just a detail.

Thank Bethesda2010
