Business Trip - heard of this place that the locals partake. It is small but packed with people and experiences. Traditional Uruguay steak house. Once of the best steaks ever in my life. 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

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

The food is cheap, so if you are in a budget I would definitely recommend it. But if you are looking for great Uruguayan beef, this is not the place.

Absolutely loved this place, my fathers personal favorite too. Worth the wait if you have people ahead of you, just order whatever is on the "parrilla" that night, you won´t be dissapointed!

We had really high expectations for La Pulperia due to its Trip Advisor status (currently no. 6 in Montevideo) however left super disappointed. It looks as though it's going to be good, lots of people waiting out the front, busy staff, nice atmosphere etc. The staff are nice but the service is poor, we had to grab our waiter as... More

This place is particularly fine if you want to eat BBQ, in a country where BBQ is regarded as essencial as breathing. The place is located in Punta Carretas, a lovely, expensive neighbourhood. The place is rather Not elegant of trendy at all, and fancies small tables

Welcome to La Pulperia, a family business that already has more than 20 years offering a unique place to eat the traditional food of Uruguay. We are a small place but with very warm atmosphere, a spectacular food, and a friendly and attentive staff. We have a place to eat inside the premises and a few tables just outside for those who like to be outdoors. Our goal is that our customers leave satisfied in order to come back and tell their family and friends.
