Wonderful cozy restaurant with great service and vibe

We went here based on the reviews on TA and we weren't disappointed. We had a short wait for a seat as it only seats about 20 people in a small space. But this adds to the atmosphere of being at a BBQ with friends. Service was homely and genuine and we wouldn't hesitate to return

This is a fun place with great food and a friendly, informal atmosphere. It is counter seating for about 25, so you need to cue up early if you want to be in the first shift. We had the rib eye, which was fantastic, but they seem to have other great beef cuts and sausage. The wine list is not... More

I used to live in Uruguay and this is the one place we all went to on a weekly basis to get the best steaks in the city. A very small, unassuming place but the meat and the service are just to die for. Get the ojo de bife for a most flavorful cut. The house wine is perfectly fine... More

This is a very authentic uruguayan barbecue place, but for me is the best place to eat uruguayan asado. The have good meat. The place is really small, but the food is good. I recommend the ojo de bife and papas al fierro.

I have no doubt this is the place for parrilla in Montevideo. Outstanding ribeye and parrilla. I was there every day during my stay in Montevideo... I just could not avoid going there every day.

No doubt this is one of my places in the world, carlos, the owner and roaster with his wife who prepares the salads, serve a meal of excellence with simplicity, they handled the best barbecue in Uruguay. Surely will leave this place happy having enjoyed a taste impossible to replicate

Simple little place, delicious meat. You for the meat and one of the best is what you get. Don´t expect side dishes, you can get some french fries or other potatoes or some simple salad, they are just really side dishes for what you gonna eat is great meat. Simple and very well done.

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
