Description: Moby Dick is a magical and unique spot in Punta del Este. It has a soul like no other. Upon entering you will feel a mystical air that envelopes you with, outdoor terrasses overlooking the port, and friendly and vibrant people dancing the night away to the most acclaimed beats at the entrance.As you slip through the jubilant crowd and head towards either of the floors and rooms of pub´s decor, you will be immediately pleased by the friendly service, food & drink varieties of this enticing open cottage Moby Dick was created as a meeting point for those who are willing to have a good time, in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.It is the music that will define the first part of the relaxing day from 10am onward, reshaping itself to accomodate a warm ideal mood to share dinner or cocktails with friends with live music, then transforming the atmosphere to make way for our resident DJ who will have you dancing until sunrise.We are open every day

This is a place where you will always find people. If you find yourself in Punta off season this is the place to check out. Good food.

Perfectly located in heart of Punta del Este in front of the marina. Nice outdoor seating if you want to sit with friends at nice tables with view of the marina. Food also served and is ok. But come here for the drinks and live music on weekends. It's one of the most popular places in Punta. Get there early... More

Moby Dick is one of the only drinking establishments to be open all year round. The Patricia is great and so is the wait staff the atmosphere depends on the night, but it is always a good pub to grab a beverage on any night.

While the ambiance may be different in winter with not even close as many people around as in summer, I do not think that the food would be. I went there because a) I had heard of it and b) I was hungry at a time (18h) when most locals would not necessarily think of having dinner and it was... More

Super location by the yacht marine. Its large outdoor seating caters to the young and beautiful of Punta del Este every evening during the summer season, with a relaxing approach to live. Live music shows and very loud music every summer evening. Incredibly busy in summer. Nice food.

As the title says, Moby Dick Pub is like Los Dedos, if you haven´t been there is because you weren´t in Punta del Este. It's the best pub in Punta, the only place that always has people at night, even in winter. Good food and a greater variety of whiskey in Uruguay! A UST PLACE!!!

Moby Dick is a classic pub in the marina area of Punta del Este. If you want to get a drink or eat or both you can go there and you will have a very friendly experience.

I found it to be the only place in Uruguay where you can find a hype place where people around 40 and even more could hang out. It's also packed with people really young... More
