Description: 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

Very nice atmosphere and installations (i WISH THEY HAD MORE LIVINGS-LIKE SPACES), good food and drinks and reasonably priced for Punta del Este! I think it is very nice to go AT night! Moby Dick is certainly a must go in PDE.

Had a great chicken parm sandwich at Moby Dick. Location is right in the port and encourages bar crawling with nearby bars. Beers were over $7, which was a high for my trip to South America.

Located along the water. Tons of outdoor seating. Some bartenders & servers speak English...plus if your spanish is not great! The bartender even gave us some other great recomendations for restaurants. It is a great place to sit outside & have drinks. All ages were there. I would recommend going after 23:00. My friend & I had a great time there!!

Moby Dick was a little pub close to the puerto district in Punta del este. We went early and had a beer and then returned late night as they had a live band. A but if a dive but for a Punta del Este that was fairly dead, this place was alive.

I wouldn't recommend eating here but, it is the place to be after dinner and before going out dancing.
Great music (generation X rick scene), great drinks, good prices and great, eclectic crowd. Live music in the summer and in the winter!
It is on the new port of Punta, great location, and for a 30something crowd.
