Definitely one of the best parrilladas in town (maybe the best!?)! Go for the "entraña"! Very tender and tasty meat overall + cosy and rustic atmosphere. The option outside is also a plus. Very nice young staff. Only cash accepted though, which might be the only negative thing with the place, but as long as you on beforehand....

This place has a lot of success and is a local to many. I eat here 1-3 times a week sometimes. But is is true the meat is often not cooked exactly as you requested and that is a bad sign for a restaurant that does nothing but cook meat. Also coffee is to be avoided. Go and gave coffee... More

I had a fantastic grilled provolone with all toppings for starter which I enjoyed throughout, it was tasty, perfectly cooked, and very juicy. As a main I had the bifé, which I specified I like very rare and came very well done. The quality of the meat was great, I´m sure, but they overcooked it so badly I couldn´t help... More

Nice place, great food. Whenever I want to eat a good beef this is the place I choose. Prices are OK regarding the quality. Don't miss it !

I take my friends from abroad to La Otra and everybody likes the food and especially the waiters' friendly attention. The meat is very good. Try the grilled sweet potato ! Fabulous!

You can check the kitchen any time since it is all open...we watched a World Cup soccer game there. The atmosphere was great so was the meat! The provolone cheese and the wine that the waiter suggested was also great.

Everytime a foreign friend comes to Uruguay I take them here. First time I went there by mistake, because all restaurants nearby were closing, and so were them... but they let us in, sit by the bar in front of the parrilla and even go to the otherside to pick our meat and take photos! Amazing! Great price and very... More

We were only in Montevideo for a couple of nights, and we ate at two parrillas - La Otra, and Tintos Y Rubios a block or two away. On balance, La Otra came out on top. The food in each was excellent, superb steak and good wine, but marginally better in La Otra. There's also a great atmosphere, very welcoming... More
