The décor is warm and inviting with the use of brick work, comfortable tables and chairs, an open kitchen, handsome bar and lots of windows to make you feel right at home. In the hostess station area there are chairs to sit in while waiting for your table. From the front entry, you can see one of the 2 private party areas. The lighting is soft but you can read the menu with no problem. This time of year, dine on the outdoor patio and soak in the wonderful Rocky Point weather.
Garufa Argentinian Steakhouse opened their doors for a pre-grand opening party on October 5th in Puerto Peñasco to their family, friends and dignitaries. As you can see from the photos it was a huge success. They served aprox. 120 people in a professional timely organized manner. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the food and their wines.
The meal consisted of wonderful Beef Slider appetizer .. next came Empanadas, that were divine. They feature 8 different types of Empanada’s on the menu and our table was really fond of the Blue Cheese stuffed ones. This was followed by a lovely salad to share. After enough time to let everything settle the staff came out with melt in your mouth Arrecherra Steak (which is known in the United States as a marinated Flank Streak). The meal was finished off with like little round pecan pies. The meal was served with a Sangria, a Spanish wine or beer. They make their own bread and rolls, which is a real plus as they are light and tasty.
There wine list is outstanding and it includes wines from the Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico as well as Spain and other places. The presentation of the wines is one of the most unique we have seen. They feature a full bar with a lot of very nice Tequila’s also.
A couple of days later the out door patio was finished and just in time to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather in Puerto Peñasco. They open daily at 1:00 p.m. One thing that makes this stand out beside the food is that it has ample secure parking.
Planning to come to Rocky Point for Thanksgiving, get your reservation for lodging in early. Many restaurants will be serving up Thanksgiving dinner so check out Latitude 31 as they fill up fast.
