Location and contact

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.

Arrived at 7.14 and got the last free table. Small place but absolutely rammed with locals and tourists enjoying good food and great ambiance. It’s a traditional small parilla so expect to sit outside but the will enjoy it!

Everything about the food was great. Seating is limited and it was extremely hot in the interior with the grill. Salad was shredded tomato and onions. Rib eye was perfect. Tiny potato puffs were hot and delicious.

This is a great parrilla in a very small busy setting. Most seating is outside looking into the parrilla which is part of the charm. The homemade bread and chimichurri sauce were delicious as were the salad, fries and wine. The steak is a good...More

It is a simple and small restaurant. The waiters are amazing, the meat very soft. We ate meat and a nice salad. The price is not high.
