Barcelona offers a lot of dining choices. We chose Obe Restaurant on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and proximity to our accommodation. We were not disappointed! The service was attentive and excellent. The wine options ranged from extremely reasonable to very expensive and the (reasonable) option we chose was great Italian wine. The menu choices are extensive without being overwhelming.... More

If you are in the el born area, this place, two blocks south of the market, has an amazing menu and fantastic food. The octopus with the chickpea soup was fantastic. One of the best place for lunch that I have eaten in el born and I have eaten there many times.

Obe Restaurant in has a very pleasant atmosphere and a lively terrace. The food is excellent, the menu is extensive, with good and fresh products. It is a very good option in this part of Ciutat Vella, around Santa Caterina market. The waiters are very nice. However, the service was slow. Maybe the only bad thing about Obe is that... More

Excellent service, food (pasta bottarga and the coulant de xocolate are to die for!) and atmosphere on wonderful terrace. Definitely worth it.

after touring the museum d'Historia de la Ciutat and had a fantastic lunch. The food was sublime- a quiet, relaxed atmosphere in the old city. And they were able to provide pasta con mantequilla for the picky children in our group. Everyone was happy. We may have to go back...

We stumbled across this restaurant after the picasa museum. They had a fixed price lunch 13 euros, including drink, and was an excellent value and had a very nice food. I see that some people have said it may be pricey for dinner, but it was an excellent one hour break before doing some shopping.
