Best asado in town

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

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.
