Simple place with a wonderful environment. Honest price and a very cold Zilertal beer! I've spent 42 usd in a dinner with my father.

Loved the asada steak, and the sausage. Perfectly cooked and seasoned! Service was top notch. Definitely arrive at the opening time, or expect to wait for a table as the tables were full prior to the restaurant actually opening :)

I have been to Uruguay about seven times to teach golf. La Pulperia is my favorite restaurant every trip. It just so happens to be up the street from my friends house, and I always make a point to eat one meal here. The owners are very nice, the Asado is the best. I always start my meal with some...

La Pulperia is a very typical Uruguayan feel restaurant. Actually, it is more like causal food. Foods are good value and good taste. I like the most was sitting in the bar, facing the "parilla" (BBQ place) having a beer or wine, watching chief to cook. If you wanna to feel the real feeling of Uruguayan life, here is one... More

Seeing how the name of the restaurant is not on the outside, adds to the wonderful ambiance. It's an intimate place to enjoy Uruguay's famous asado! And let's not forget tour talk about how amazing every dish tastes! Bottom line, if you are in Montevideo and you do not go here, you are missing out big time.

Making this review on the magnificent "La Pulpería" is giving me some a hard time.. On one hand, I'd love to recommend this little spot to all the visitors so that I can feel even prouder of one of the most representative places of the "asado" culture. One the other hand, I should try to keep this little "pretty much... More

Excellent place, nice people, great meat. Must go place in Montevideo. Price is average for a restaurant of this kind. Just make sure to arrive early as capacity is always full.

The food has been well reviewed by previous scribes - they do not lie! The wine is decent, the beer is cheap and cold. But the great thing is the atmosphere, the people, and the opportunity to be part of (and enjoy) a classic neighbourhood parrilla - seek it out, and you will not be disappointed. My absolute 'go to'... More

Beautifully rustic with a welcoming atmosphere created by the grill (Braai) as the center of attention. The food is created in its honest form, delicious and tender. Simple is the best! Our highlight of Montevideo

The best place I've been in Montevideo! It is a small restaurante with tables around the sidewalk. Meat is really great, beer is really cold! You can't miss it but it is a small and simple place. Don't expect a premium service: it is a place to eat and drink very well!
