We came here following all the great comments at TripAdvisor. It's a small nice place with bar chairs around the parilla grill. Very reasonable prices. Ordered provolone- found it a little flavorless, chorizo was great. However, the entrecôte was definitely not the best I ever had.

La Pulperia is by far the best kept cullinary secret on the Rio Uruguay and one of the best restaurants in Uruguay. It is located in the very small town of Casa Blanca just south of Paysandu some 360 Kms north west of Montevideo. From its terrace on the shore, offers tranquility and beatiful views of the river, its islands... More

I first came to this restaurant 3 years ago. It was great. The blood sausage and sausages were great, the best quality I found in Montevideo. On trip my wife and I noticed a decrease in the quality of the ingredients, and in the preparation of the sausages. On two occasions on this trip the sausages were partly burnt.

PROs: Culture Food ... Food. Cons: Packed - but part of culture Limited operating hours. In Uruguay dinner is later (like Europe) so they open around 7pm... More

Be there early at 7 pm and enjoy the best piece of meat at the best price in Montevideo. It is a sidewalk treasure.

I always enjoy eating at La Pulperia. The good is very good and the value is hard to beat. Visited Saturday evening with my son. We arrived at opening 7:00 PM and selected a table outside, as it gets quite warm inside near the grill. Tables filled up quickly and by 8:00 PM, people were waiting for a seat inside... More

I'm disappointed to report that La Pulparia has fallen in quality in the last year. I visited on Feb.7th and again on the 14th. My visit on the 7th was an early seating right after they opened. I brought my son along on this trip as he had never been to Uruguay in the past. I did kind of hype... More
