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

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

Really fun bar with good food & great service. Band was great. It was an eye opener for us regarding the time that people come out to party. We had dinner at 11pm by 12:30 it was busy, by 1 am packed. Throughout our time there the service was great

Very cool/popular pub on the strip in Punta del Este. We only ordered appetizers and drinks because it was still early, which were good. Staff was great and prices were fair, considering everything in this city is expensive (I'm talking Hamptons expensive!).

I came here 7 years ago when Tuto was the bartender and fell in love. Great local crowd, totally welcoming to us Norte Americanos, with cheap drinks and a great scene. This year, Tuto is sadly gone but the staff there now is fantastic! Fun atmosphere, full bar, outdoor seating both street level and upstairs, with a good mix of... More

The atmosphere it´s not nice during summer season. But, if you go to PDE during other holidays weekends and have fun at night. Its a kind of little disco.
