Cool Patio with great Ocean view

We stopped here from a light dinner and happy hour, we were not disappointed. My wife really enjoyed the oxtail soup, I had a Obama burger. Large roll that didn't hold up the all the veggies included and tasty sauce. A nice way to relax after sunset. (The name and use of the campaign logo wierds... read more

I would recommend to try the RIBS. If you can try special drinks, they are a little bit in the sweet side.

I have to say I was attracted by the sea view at the first sight passing by the main road on a tutuk.This Obama was just between the main road and the beach(near station 1),with two glass wall both on road side and beach side.So I could look through the restaurant and see the beach...Furthermore, it got air condition,I sat...

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).

The food was provided by the hotel but we were allowed to have our meal at the restaurant. Since we dont eat meat, we tried the seafood pasta from obama and also the pesto pasta.... More

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
