The quality of meats was incredible for a place that does not even have a sign outside. Get there 1 hr before and take a seat at one of the 4 tables outside. The last 2 pages in the menu are in English. We tried kidneys, blood sausage, chicken thigh, rib eye steaks (a must!) and went there twice during... More

This neighborhood grill is not much to look at, but the food is delicious and prices are much lower than other paradillas I visited in Montevideo. Be forewarned that there are only small stools to sit on inside, but there are a few tables with chairs outside. This is not a fine dining establishment, but the food is excellent. My... More

Have had the best beef at this hidden gem in Montevideo. It cannot become more genuine when it comes down to uruguayan beef. Service is perfect. Prices unbeatable for what you get. Non of these fancy restaurants, but by far one of the best restaurants in uruguay.

If not for the food they serve, you might think you are in Tokyo or in Madrid. It is a parrilla (bbq) with the best meat, chorizos (sausages), mollejas (sweet bread), etc., cooked in front of you, served hot and juicy by well trained staff. They are as fast and efficient as in Tokyo or Madrid! The place is tiny,... More

MEAT TO PERFECTION! In a small and traditional place where they simply serve you the best meat around. Amazing, friendly, genuine. Not a great choice of wine, but who cares go there for fill up your neat cravings and restore your cholesterol level. A feast, an orgy of meat. Fantastic.

Are you a meat lover? Fancy a beer by the sidewalk? This is your place! A very small, local parrillada place. They like to keep it simples. 4-5 wooden tables by sidewalk and a few benches on a bar (la barra) and that's it. The place gets crowded, mostly with locals! We went for lunch on a Sunday and arrived... More

Probably had the best rib eye of my life, so much so we returned the following night for short ribs. Had bbq in Brazil and Argentina and I would say so far this is my favourite. The place is small and local, and the people running the place are friendly and down to earth. Pricing is definitely kind. We arrived... More

We went to La Pulperia on our first evening in Montevideo and enjoyed our experience, but not as we expected. The place is really small, with counters and barstools inside, surrounding the parrilla, and some tables on the sidewalk. We arrived as they opened, 8:00 pm, and most seats were already taken. It fills up fast, with locals mostly. We... More

All we heard on our visit was how great the food was and the price being cheap. The steak was burned on the outside and cold in the middle. There are other places in Montevideo not as crowded, food is better, and cheaper. But, the service was very good.

Yeah, so the location is nothing to speak of. It is in one of the nicer neighborhoods, a few blocks north of the Punta Carretas shopping area on a corner in a green unassuming building. Then again, that describes many of the "nicer" restaurants in the area. Don't let the quiet neighborhood or shabby decor turn you away. The restaurant... More
