Just a the best mollejas. Well seasoned, perfectly cooked and amazing taste. Beside the mollejas I'd ordered a medium rare entrecôte but I ended up with a well done entrecôte (not nice at all). Don't miss the mollejas!

What a pleasure joy finding a barbecue joint like this near my hotel! One of the best entrecotes and flank steaks I've ever had! Waiters and cook really caring and considerate!

Simple place with a wonderful environment. Honest price and a very cold Zilertal beer! I've spent 42 usd in a dinner with my father.

Loved the asada steak, and the sausage. Perfectly cooked and seasoned! Service was top notch. Definitely arrive at the opening time, or expect to wait for a table as the tables were full prior to the restaurant actually opening :)

I have been to Uruguay about seven times to teach golf. La Pulperia is my favorite restaurant every trip. It just so happens to be up the street from my friends house, and I always make a point to eat one meal here. The owners...More

La Pulperia is a very typical Uruguayan feel restaurant. Actually, it is more like causal food. Foods are good value and good taste. I like the most was sitting in the bar, facing the "parilla" (BBQ place) having a beer or wine, watching chief to...More

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.
