Very good steaks

If you're into meat, meat and more meat this is the place to have dinner at. High prices, even for Montevideo standards, but the waiters did very well even with a incredibly full house. They even spoke portuguese. All good.

I went in to try the food because I heard so many good things. It was very delicious, and the servers were very nice. The atmosphere was very chill, and they let me try some meats without being charged! Also, the wine is fantastic!! Enjoy these wonderful people and their delicious food 😄

I had a vegetarian pizza with no cheese and it was delicious. Actually I went to this place twice for it and both times they were great

Food is simple but good (beef based) Price quite reasonable. Ambiance very informal though comfortable. Acoustics terrible. Very noisy. Weather permitting seat outside on the sidewalk.

This was the first restaurant i visited with my husband when i came to Montevideo. The food was delicious and for me this is the best parilla place in Montevideo. However, the dessert was pathetic and we had to leave it unfinished. The waiters were very slow and we had to call them several times to take orders and get... More

We had dinner here on 2 nights during a recent stay in the area. On each occasion the food, service and price was very good. If you do not book it is advisable to go before 8-30 pm as it fills up very quickly from the local population.

La Otra was one of the best dinning experiences we had in Montevideo. My wife and I arrived early (around 7:00) which is not too common, but the staff was very welcoming. And the food was delicious. Great ceviche. Excellent parilla.

First molleja plus provolone, thereafter the baby beef with salad. Quality of the meat is mostly very high. La Otra focusses on what they can do: meat. Which is non nonsense Uruguayan style reflected also in its decoration. Quality of wines is good as well. After many years it is still a rather "in place", Uruguayans as well as foreigners... More

A native Montevidean took us here as one of the best examples of an authentic parilla -- Uruguayan grill -- in the city. Centrally located just a few blocks off the Rambla in a leafy, pleasant neighborhood, the restaurant is comfortable, with seating at attractive wood tables in a lovely, rustic setting, complete with an open parilla where you can...

A great resto, on a lovely side street, the waitstaff is great and so is the food. Nothing against La Otra but for goodness sake this is 2015, why don't they wake up and offer Visa. The menu is not cheap, and having to carry lots of cash to eat out is passe, particularly when so many other good restos... More
