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.

...and the bubbly was very nicely chilled! ;) With the exquisite balance of tastes on the palate, light sparkles was exactly what the dishes deserved..

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

We had the seafood linguini special and the pork shank, both excellent , followed by the most mouth watering deserts of our trip, nougat, and poached pears in a red wine... More

After visiting several markets and finishing at the Santa Caterina, it was time for lunch. We hadn't planned to eat here, but it is just around the corner to the market and we were too tired to go any further. Obe looks good from the outside and is very bright and well decorated inside. There is a board outside the... More

Stumbled across this lovely little Italian after not being able to get a table at another restaurant we had planned to visit. So glad we had to change our plans as this is the best we've had so far in Barcelona. Beautiful presentation, inventive dishes, all beautifully cooked. We both had an entree, secondi & dessert and left very happy... More

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
