Excellent parrilla!

Finally, after trying some steakhouses in Uruguay, an excellent parrilla! La Otra is a restaurant without sophistication, but the food is well made and justifies the fame of Uruguayan meat. There are few but good wine options (for example, the excellent wines of the winery Narbona, Carmelo). The... read more

Found it while preparing and only 2 blocks away from the MySuites Hotel. Authentic place, caring staff and their recommendation was outstanding: pulpa meat. You smell pampa, gauchos and fire. Being used to and loiving US steakhouses, this meat was the non-refined, original version of great meat.Great experience and the best meat we've had in 4 or 5 occasions.

Our first Parilla experience in Uruguay, and this place did not disappoint. Before the perfectly grilled Asado even arrived, we had to force ourselves not to fill up on the (free!) fresh baked baguettes and tomato, cilantro chutneys. Wine comes in red or white, 1/4 jar (about 2 glasses) or 1/2 jar (4 glasses). The smallest portion which I ordered... More

When I want a good steak, I love this place. It has TOP quality meat and a casual atmosphere. These guys know what they're doing and have several cuts that are a bit less common but soooooo good!

Decided to try this because it was rated well and very near our hotel. What a great meal! Nice selection of wines to compliment the great choices on the menu. Our server spoke good English and helped us with our broken Spanish. Really enjoyed the ribeye. Done just was I wanted it.

After reading many of the previous reviews we decided NOT to go here. The receptionist at our hotel was surprised when we said this. However, on her recommendation, we went.

All things considered this might be Montevideo's best. Rustic decor, spacious, ventilated( even in front of asado grill bar - you can watch without being grilled yourself like most other places) excellent cuts of boeuf, poultry and viscera all cooked perfectly. booze plentiful and not too expensive.Outside seating like being in Athens, Greece.
