Only called in for a quick drink on our first day in Punta - it was to be our last visit. The drinks prices were extortionate. Daren't even look at the food menu! Much better places in the town.

We stopped at this place for a drink as first impressions was that it looked like a nice place. We sat outside and it wasn't very busy. It took me ten minutes to get the attention of the waitress to order a beer. I asked for a large beer to share and after she brought me a small bottle of... More

Instead of a 3-course-menue only one course was offered without deducting the invoice accordingly. Helpless waitresses.

This is a place for some good pub-style meals with a great selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. It is quieter at lunch time and pleasantly casual. They build great hand-made juicy burgers. I recommend them, but only if you understand they are huge and messy to eat. Fish and chips are great, but do not appear on the menu... More

The food is tasty, but the price is kind high. I'd go again as the service and location were great, but wouldn't recommend for someone in tight budget.

Had an excellent meal at the Moby Dick Pub which also happens to be in a brilliant position with a view of Punta del Este harbour. We were served by a really friendly waiter who spoke good English and they played lots of British music which was an unexpected plus for us. Would go there again!

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
