Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great atmosphere, food and drinks, good music but doesn't drown out conversation plus friendly attentive staff. Could do with a few more veggie options but overall this place was a great discovery, I will be back. Their veggie mac and cheese with cauliflower was amaaaaazing, highly recommended.

La Pulpería has an amazing menu: very tasty food (mostly focused on seafood) for a very good price. I especially recommend the mussles in a coconut-sriracha sauce or the fried shrimps. The waiter outside, Yoxander, is very attentive, spontaneous, friendly and works quickly. 100% recommend a visit to this restaurant.

An excellent casual place to grab a bite and drink. Excellent service and quality of food. We had the chupones— their version of wings—- which are drumsticks cooked to perfection. The octopus is excellent, as is the “rompecholchon”... highly recommended on a lazy weekend when you want to stop by and relax in a laid back corner of the casco viejo. Enjoy!

The place is beautiful and a great concept around the panameñan "pulperia"which I found out has nothing to do with the actual octopus. Nevertheless they do offer an octopus dish, and what a dish - deliciously grilled, fresh, non-chewy, lots of flavor. The service was really super friendly and will advice you regarding wht to eat (sizes, taste, appetite). Would vidit agsin any time. The margarita was also quite tasty (managed to catch.the happy hour by chance).

My friend and I went to La Pulperia on three separate occasions in our short time in Casco Viejo and each time was better than the last. Our server, Justin, explained ingredients and answered all the questions we had. We learned a lot! Stacey has also been our server and is so, so nice and patient as I tried out my espanol. The empanadas are the best I have ever had. In my life. Anywhere. The octopus and potatoes are divine. The fish sells out quickly but if you get in before it does, you’ll immediately know why. Everything is perfectly cooked, flavorful and the ambience is neat too.

Apologies for the overzealous description! Let me try again: Andreas, the bartender, is simply fantastic! His drinks are wonderfully crafted, each sip a delightful adventure. The ceviche he serves is a burst of freshness and tangy goodness, perfectly complementing the drinks. Cheers to Andreas for turning every visit into a flavor fiesta! 🍹

Really cool vibe in the restaurant with excellent service. Daniela was very patient with our attempts at Spanish. The Cerviche was delicious. The octopus and green salad was very nice. The kids enjoyed popcorn chicken Mac and cheese, fried shrimp and the enchiladas. Reasonably price.

We spent a wonderful afternoon at Pulperia. We started with passion fruit mojitos followed by lollipops & bbq fries. The food as well as the drinks were fabulous. Super quality! If you are searching for a sweet adventure, I can definitely recommend the signature drink Calle Nueve. To finish we had the best chicken quessedillas ever. The interior is very well done, pleasant atmosphere. The service was more than perfect, special thanks to Natalie, Dante & Coti who fulfilled all our wishes. We will definitely come back again! Muy rico!

We had a dinner of mussels and Peruvian ceviche. Very delicious. And the mussels are served in a creamy curry sauce over a bed of fries! We also tried the coleslaw. It is finely shredded with a little unexpected heat from Siracha? Whatever it is I want the recipe! Elizabeth was our server, and she was kind and patient with our broken Spanish. We met one of the owners who told us about his family, and showed us his octopus tattoo. I highly recommend this restaurant, and not for octopus exactly. You’ll see what I mean when you learn their story.

I ordered the octopus and while the quality of the food was excellent, unfortunately the portion was absolutely tiny - less than half of a small plate. I understand that octopus is something of a delicacy but a lot of the dish was potatoes, so there was really no excuse for providing a portion that would barely qualify as a starter. I'm not sure if this was intended to be tapas but it wasn't made clear if so, infuriatingly this was also one of the most expensive items on the menu. Sadly I was still very hungry after finishing the dish, I also think we were overcharged on the bill due to confusion over the happy hour (which I'm not convinced was not deliberate) however we didn't quibble and paid the inflated price as we needed to leave ASAP in order to return to our apartment and cook a proper meal. We were less than an hour total in the restaurant, paid over $50 and had to cut our evening short to return to our apartment and cook dinner afterwards. A real disappointment.

Great food. Great service from Alexandra and her coworkers. The mussels were fresh and the octopus was cooked to perfection. The drinks were delicious. Mezcalito was very smoky and the tequila drink (blanking on the name) was strong with a subtle sweetness to it. The decor was beautiful! Definitely will go again.

What an experience! These guys are leaders in the new restaurant game of Casco. Yoxander provided world class service. Highly recommended if weighing other options. Cuisine was top-notch, reasonable prices. The corvina and langostinos served were fresh. Notable cocktails. Infusions mix well together. Whoever created the menu knows how to match flavors.
