Location and contact

Since Dec 2010 Arrai Beach Bar is definitely a meeting point in Punta del Diablo. Its panoramic terrace offers the best view towards the hill of the Fishermen, the rocky point and the hill of the Rivero simultaneously. A simple menu with original dishes, made with fresh products accompany this wonderful environment. Arrai means fish in Basque, summarizes the main characteristics of this place, highlights the owners' Basque descent, a rich menu of seafood and the history of the fishing village. The musical selections and their live shows stand out above the rest. Spanish, English and Portugues is spoken. We don t have toilet.

Delicious à la carte meals, plus an everyday changing main course and enjoying a lovely atmosphere with musicians among the three siblings owning the restaurant, offers the opportunity to spend a most advisable time at this place

We had only an appetizer and drinks here one evening, but we enjoyed the experience. The establishment is on the beach, and from the deck, we watched the crowds slowly leave as the sun went down. It’s a nice place to chill, and the hosts...More

Very good food, nice and friendly staff and a very nice view of the beach! I guess the only minus is that they didnt have any bathroom, but maybe thats too much to expect from a beach bar.

I spent a week at Arrai in Punta del Diablo in January--i.e. I went to the beach by the bar every day. The food, the warmth of the Algorta family, the live music and the endless days of sun and drinks--everyone should experience this once...More

I stumbled upon Arrai without having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor. There are not that many bars literally on the beach but this one has a perfect location. The wine is excellent (can't say that of all the places I visited there), the food is...More
