The service was amazing and also the food. They have good music and it's a very comfortable place to relax and enjoy! A little bit expensive as everything in Punta del Este.

It's a good place to go out, but it gets claustrophobically crowded around 230-4. You can't almost move. But the music is good! A bit slow bar, but we had a good night out.

Standard place to sit outside in a touristy area by the peer... Mostly normal tables but some with lounge couches. The half-liter beers were out so we had to go for 0,3 where you get an even worse deal. Which means $180, which is close to Zurich-prices... Although they have a quiet a big staff for their size we had... More

We were the only diners and went because of the taxi driver's suggestion and excellent views on TA. I ordered their special burger and it was the saltiest, most overlooked mound of beef I think I've ever had. My friends spaghetti Del Mar was also really underwhelming. She didn't eat much of it but wanted to take it back to... More

I really enjoyed the live band they had on stage. The bad side was waiting half an hour for an outrageously overpriced beer and then also being short changed by the barman,and when you mention it to him, he just pulls up his shoulders.

The restaurant is located in front of the Port of the Punta del Leste. Beautiful place to drink a good beer and to eat. The meat is a classic dish at this restaurant and I recommend it. There are also different drinks that you can choose. Very nice place.

We went off season, not so many bars in town were open. And this place still was crowded. Good music and beverage.

I went here on October 1st. It is still off season and some restaurants didn't open at all, even though it was a Saturday night. Even the McDonald's in town is closed. This place was open and still had customers. The atmosphere is pretty cool, and it was nice and warm on a cold night. The burger was pretty good... More

Moby Dick has been there for centuries. With its fireplace and cozy athmosphere is great at this time of the year when the season is over and wind blows from the south Atlantic seas. In summer with its air non-conformist more like being in south florida than the tropics is a must for the young as well as the not... More
