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.

Went there for dinner with friends and all of us enjoyed the food. We ate at one of the tables on the sidewalk. Great beef, good Uruguayan wine at affordable prices.Very friendly service. Highly recommend.

This is THE place if you love beef! There are many parilla restaurants throughout Montevideo but this is our favorite, after finding it by accident 3 years ago. Located in Pocitos, it is a neighborhood place, patronized mostly by locals. I favor the "petite bife de lomo" -- cooked to perfection (at least exactly as I requested!) -- accompanied by... More

We had a provolone de la casa ($240), french fries ($100), an Ojo de Bife Ancho ($410) and an Entrecote ($400). Too much food for 2 people. Would skip the provolone next time. The food was great, but the service was a bit slow, below the average I would say. Ordered a beer and there was only one glass at... More

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 😄

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.
