I discovered La Otra the second after I arrived In MVD, March 2014. This parrilla has a very good quality of meat and you do not have a surprise with their standard of food. Once, it happened that my steak was too cook. I did mention the server and took it back and brought me another one Without hesitation. The... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation from our hotel of somewhere that wasn't too expensive in this nice neighbourhood but with really good food. They weren't wrong! We were welcomed with lovely bread as is customary and the great accompaniments that are so often served with steaks- parsley salad and the little tomato salad. This was followed by... More

Took a small table for lunch. My waiter spoke maybe 8 words of English, and demonstrated great patience as he had several tables to attend where English was the primary/only language spoken (I ordered in Spanish). Had a full salad and a bife entrée "a la punta". The steak was perfectly cooked, juicy, delicious. Skipped the dessert but ended with... More

This was pleasant with good service. We arrived early (about 7:30 pm) but it soon became busy. The steaks were good, but the short ribs were a bit tough. It was hot inside: we had a window beside our table, but it was too windy to have the window wide open.

Located in a safe Pocitos neighbourhood the location,atmosphere,service and food was excellent. We shared a tenderloin,ribeye,glazed yam and baked potato!More food than we needed and we ate every last bit!We really enjoyed a local tannat Cabernet. We are returning in a couple of days to gorge ourselves again. Haha

I had one of the best steaks I have even eaten at La Otra. Our server, Motto, was very helpful in describing the different cuts of beef and also on how to have it cooked. My only criticism is that if you are not a meat eater, this is not a place for you. My wife ordered chicken and it... More

Came here on a whim, what a great surprise. I had a salad with shrimp that was fantastic! Our waiter was honest too and not trying to upsell. We wanted two orders of fries and he told us to only get one, as the portion size was large enough for two. I appreciate this honesty, as it shows that they... More

We find this great corner just because... we did not know wether it would be great or not, and it happened to be our best meal in Montevideo! It is a very casual place, great parrilla, normal people serving at their best... don't miss it if you visit the city!
