Went for supper last night based on the reviews and have to say not disappointed in t food or service. However when the bill came i did question a charge for "Cubiertos" times 2 as it wasn't something we ordered. I was told this was...a standard charge in Uruguay restaurants so dismissed the 240.00 peso charge. The bill also included a tax and a tip so I don't understand why the try to hide this "cutlery charge" in the middle of your bill.More

As a Uruguayan leaving abroad, every time I travel back to Uruguay to visit family and friends, having proper "parrilla" it's a must for me, I usually go to La Otra and it never disappoints. Great servcie, food, and atmosphere. It's a qutie simple place,...no luxury but it really doesn't matter because the food is absolutely fantastic. I used to live a few blocks away from La Otra before I relocated ot Europe and at very beginning it was even simpler....just food, no desserts, no wines and they accepted only cash. Is great to see how they evolved adding desserts and wines to the menus what makes the dining experience even more enjoyable.More

Otra is a proper parilla, and worthy of our four visits in a three week span. The Chef and his staff are all about service. The wine list is affordable and varied. Steaks and sausage are delicious. The sweetbreads are, without a doubt, spectacular.

Fantastic parrilla (grill) in quiet neighbor a fair hike from Rambla. Has locals feel. Cozy inside, sidewalk tables outside. Friendly staff. Wood fired grill. Excellent meat choices. It is well worth exploring to find this gem.

So glad we listened to the rave reviews of other travelers and booked our last dinner in Montevideo here. The owner was so welcoming to everyone who walked through the doors. We enjoyed a fabulous rib eye steak and salad. Perfect! Wines by the glass...were very nice and service was excellent.More

This is an authentic Parrilla which is located away from the touristy area of old town & closer to an area where some of the embassy’s are. We visited there at lunchtime. Arrived early ?(12:30) so good choice for seating. The service was good, the...wine (Tanner) was fabulous. The two appetisers (tomato salsa & chimichurri) were nice to. We ordered Entranya which was wonderful; as was the baked potato with Rockford cheese. By the end of our meal the place was very busy - a great vibe & very enjoyable lunchMore

This place was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. We arrived at lunchtime and it was quiet but it got busier after 1pm. Entranya meat was great - huge portions and I enjoyed the baked potato with Roquefort as a side dish. The...tannat wine is really good accompaniment. As it was off the beaten track it was not full of tourists. Worth a visit.More

This restaurant is off the beaten path for tourists, but it is heavily trafficked by locals. Uruguay is known for its beef and this restaurant grills it over open flamed grills. It is outstanding; the servings are large so come hungry. The menu is in...Spanish, but they do have an English menu available if you ask. The wait staff is leisurely, waiting primarily on your sign that you are ready so be assertive. Eating here was a unique experience that couldn't be replicated by eating in a touristy restaurant.More

ate here after a while of going to underwhelming restaurants and was not disappointed, the garlic and tomato pizza in particular was so worth smelling of garlic for a week. delicious!

The restaurant is simple. It was crowded when we arrived (Sunday, 3:00 pm). The waiter was very very nice and the food was super tasty and good. It was the best meat we ate In Montevideo.

We´ve been to a lot of places in Montevideo during our trip and La Outra gave us the best dining experience. The meat was amazing and the service outstanding. We were sat on the second floor with a great view for the parrilla.
