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

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

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!
