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

Although we arrived before official opening time the owners invited us in a served us a drink 'on the house' whilst we waited for the kitchen to open. The staff could speak English and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our food and evening. Prices are very reasonable and the evening was very enjoyable.

This well-located beachfront bar near Punta del Este's harbour has a good selection of beers and drinks, and live music after midnight, but food is poor, unsavory and tasteless.

pub food outside by the yacht club. Busy street. Great beer. Comfortable surroundings! Good for a snack mid lunch. Local fish was excellent.

I like the feel they are making- a lounge playing house music. I also liked the fact that I could chose to get my mohito without sugar, to mix it myself, but still - the prizes are crazy. A Moscow Mule contains two ingredients, vodka and ginger ale soda, and still it had the intriguing prize of 350 UYU pesos.... More
