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

There is nothing special about Moby Dick. The food is average, not especially tasty. The server spoke good English and seemed preoccupied; in my opinion she was expected to cover too many tables.

The menu remains the same thru the years, nothing to die for,and they offer the same type of dishes you may find in any other beach pub. Cocktails and wine menu are better in variety,though. The place is hip and there's live music some nights a week. The pub attracts young people that are, basically looking for partying and flirting.... More

We've been there during the new year's eve holidays. We waited more than one hour for only two sandwiches! And we also had to wait for pay. Crazy!

We heard this was a fun place to go to with good live music (not electronic nonsense). We went and enjoyed the great vibe and fantastic service so much! All the barmen were extremely friendly and they work hard! The place gets packed!

The food was good and staff was very friendly. I specially like the vegetables served with main dishes. The staff spoke English very well and help us with everything. The fish which was supposed to be catch of the day was just ok. That was the only bit which we didn't enjoy. Rest a very good restaurant.
