Oh My FOOD!

What a great selections if food they have here. The foods were the best. We ordered Kebab, Seafood Platter, Bagnet and Sisig. It was worth the price and wait. The waiting time I must say is a bit too long so you have to be patient. Nice place as well.

Stopped by and ordered two pastas. The first one was not a pasta at all but a combination of noodles in oil and minimal seafood. The second dish was supposed to be pasta with garlic and prawns which was again inedible as it was swimming in oil. Ordered two cocktails but like the food were terrible. The alcohol was bitter...

Obama is strategically located in Station 1. I say "strategically" because it's just beside Club Paraw (where most of the bass-banging, floor-stomping club gigs happen) and just a short walk to D-Mall. So whether you're just looking to take a breather from the pungent smell of sweat and cigarette in the club or finding a place to chill and get... More

Admittedly I had fairly low expectations of this place, but it was pleasing to be pleasantly surprised. Ribs were very good and the grilled seafood also (although the squid was served a little cold). Reasonable food at ok prices (maybe a little expensive for the seafood).

My friends and I had breakfast at obama every morning as we were staying at shore time hotel, fantastic morning view which was the beach.

I ate here during LaBoracay; it's basically one of the busiest weekends in Boracay when there's a ton of city folk crowding the small island. Given that the local workers are used to less people, I'm not very surprised with the slower than usual service... So I won't be commenting on that, but will review on the food itself. The... More

We stayed a couple of days enjoying the White Beach at Obama's. You can use their beach chairs and umbrella if you drink or eat at the restaurant and I recomend. Their shakes are great, fair price, they have wi-fi and cold beer! ;)

Me and my family had dinner here. We were quite happy with the food, the ambience is okay. You can either choose to be seated outdoors overlooking the beach, or indoors in air conditioned room.

We enjoyed the ribs and onion rings at Obama. Serving was big and prices were reasonable. The restaurant is beachfront and has a good ambiance as well as good service. Yes, I would definitely eat here again.
