Not sure what all the fuss is about. It was OK but not much better than your average barrio parrilla in Buenos Aires. Wine was average, the meat wasn't bad, the chips were crap. Good price but not one to remember.

Montevideo at midday has a smell of burned wood and "asado" (barbecue). There are lot of places where to have a good barbecue you can choose from the simpler to the more sophisticated with fancy gravies and sauce. At night, starting at 20:00 there is "La Pulperia" and then the others. It is a very simple restaurant, do not expect... More

We ate here both nights we were in Montevideo. There's nothing flash about this place but the food is great, the beer is cold, good service and the prices are reasonable. Make sure you arrive around 8 if you want a table straight away as people line up to get in.

This is the place travelers dream of - good food, friendly service, good prices and an atmosphere that makes you feel like one of the locals. Had a great steak and big beer for less than $15 dollars US. Amazing.

Basic parilla but done brilliantly. No pretentions, just excellent meat in a lively atmosphere. Very friendly service and excellent value for money.

We have been walking by this place for about 5 years and always thought that it was a bar until we read about it on TripAdvisor. We said that the next time we were in Montevideo were we own an apartment just down the street from the restaurant, we were going to give it a try. We got there at... More

la pulperia was a vey nice place I went twice during my last trip to montevideo. They have good prices, good service in a very cozy place. The recommendations are, ask for the entrecot, amazing, with a green salad and a Patricia.

Not sure why this is not listed as the best restaurant in Montevideo. It was amazing! Now with only a few tables you have to either get there early or wait for the next available table, but the has nothing to do with the excellent quality of food. Easily one of the top three steaks I have ever had.

I went 5 years ago and now I came back. It's still the best meat and vibe in montevideo. Everything is delicious and worths every penny. The attention is familiar and fantastic. Is very small and gets busy very early, so move your feet quickly. I wouldn't recommend it for large groups or families with kids, unless you go with... More
