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!

Here we go then. I'm a little disappointed that I'm writing this but feel the need to let people know how the standards have dropped in La Otra. This is my third visit to La Otra and I have been telling my wife and anyone that will listen that this is the best Parilla in South America. Well how disappointed... More

It is crowdy but as they told us 10 min wait,that it was.Wine was good but fries just average. No space for desserts that looks really... More

We had a great time at this Neighborhood Parilla which was packed with Locals. We went early in the evening which was great as the waiter gave us lots of attention and had good suggestions for wine and dishes. The sirloin and short ribs were very good - done perfectly. Baked potato with roquefort topping was amazing. The bill was... More

We have seen a lot of Restaurants during the last 3 weeks but in La Otra we had by far the best Meat! The atmosphere is nice but the service is a bit slow unfortunately.
