Good place to eat

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

Outdoor seating very nice. Service ok. Not the best beef in town. We were served steaks that looked more like contra filets than the ojo del ancho the locals were served.

We went to La Otra based on reviews from here, from an acquaintance and from our hotel receptionist. Looking back at the reviews again confirmed what we found out for ourselves. If you are a local, or at least speak fluent enough Spanish that they might think you are, then you should probably try it. If you are a tourist,... More
