Loved this place. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. Place is small, so make sure to arrive no later than 1900 hours to secure a space to seat. Cash only, no credit cards.

Small local place with an open pit bbq. Simple no fuss bbq steaks, potatoes and sausage. A must try.

La Pulperia is known as one of the best parrillas in Montevideo - well I agree! Not your typical sit down restaurant which makes the experience even more amazing! It’s busy and the line is out the door. A must try in Montevideo.

Best steak I have ever had and that is saying something because I'm from Texas where we have lots of steak houses. I wisely just got a half portion as did my son and daughter-in-law and we all ate for under $50.00.

A place like in a movie - planks as bar, stools to sit on, no reservation possible ... and excellent grilled meats with a good wine selection. Coffee? You have to get there somewhere else. But by this time you have had an excellent meal...More

We have a place to eat inside the premises and a few tables just outside for those who like to be outdoors. Our goal is that our customers leave satisfied in order to come back and tell their family and friends.
