The place to go for grilled seafood

Obama has mastered the art of grilling seafood. Never overdone. They always hit the sweet spot. Seafood is juicy and tender. Just the way it should be.

Food here is average. If you better Filipino food and don't mind paying a bit of a premium, go to Mayas -- the restaurant of Jony's Beach.

Great food service and perfect view! Beach front view is Simply beautiful even with those see through glass walls that keeps you cool inside but still able to see the magnificent beach of Boracay.

O-Bama Grill is very near Estacio Uno and is our natural first stop for lunch. The place gets full quickly. Place is clean. Mango shake is very good. The ube shake i find too watery. It took around 30 minutes before our order arrived. Food tasted ok but there are resto serving better tasting filipino dishes around the beach.

This place was terrific! The staff are excellent, they had no available seating on the beach front so they brought a table out for us, guitarist was playing solo, he was excellent, perfect atmosphere! Perfect setting, great food, friendly staff! This should be one of the top places to eat in Boracay! Thank you Obama Grill!!!

We came here every night to relax after dinner and listern to the singer cum guitarist, performing till 9pm. Some singers were better than others. Overall pleasant ambience and nice affordable drinks. We had dinner only 1 time though food was average and did not revisit for dinner.

The restaurant has a very promising menu and lovely modern decor. My husband had the ribs which had a lot of fatty bits. There was nothing accompanying the meat. I ordered the teriyaki chicken - it turned out to be about half a chicken breastfeeding cooked in teriyaki sauce. Rice was extra. Overall very disappointed.

We were a group of 15 pax and probably used up the indoor space that they have. We wanted the bill to be prepared separately as it can be very complicated if we divide the total bill to 15. They were hesitant at first but I insisted that they allow this and so they did. They took our orders and... More

We were looking for a nice place to eat lunch after we arrived in Boracay. Our hotel recommend this place which is nearby. Price was average and food selection was great. We enjoyed our lunch ordering favourite Filipino dishes. I would recommend this place.
