Good food, friendly staff. Be prepared to eat to a funky soundtrack. A cold draft from the open door was the only downside.

Tucked behind St. Catarina Market, in its own little Placa, Obe rates as one of our favorites in Barcelona. Great menu selections, varied wine offerings and quality throughout. Lunch menu is excellent value not to be missed. Jean Claude is the owner and with his staff, provide warm, friendly service whether you want a full meal or just a glass... More

Very friendly staff, great with kids We loved the pasta and the dessert. Such a surprise you can find such great, fine and original dishes in a city filled with touristic paella serving restaurants. Too bad it was... More

We stumbled into Obe for lunch while exploring old Barça and had an excellent meal. The daily menu was very reasonably priced for the quality of food we received. There was also a very nice level of flexibility within the constraints of the fixed menu. Highly recommended.

Came here for dinner on a Saturday night. The service started a bit slow, and it took a bit too long to get the menu and first order, but then it turned. The food was authentic Italian and very good. The chef and the waiter were really nice, especially towards our 4 year old daughter, which is always very nice.... More

Kids were able to order simple tomatoes spaghetti which they loved. Husband and I both had the beef cheeks in red wine. They were tough and tasted like, well, tough cheeks. We had hoped they would be like the fabulous beef cheeks we have at Movida in Melbourne, which melt in the mouth. We had to leave most of it.... More
