“Excelente”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Visited twice during our stay in Barcelona and each time the food was superb, beautifully presented and good portion size. We were made so welcome each time we visited and the service is warm, friendly and attentive. The lunch menu is fantastic value for money and th evening menu although more costly is varied with something for everyone. We have been staying in barcelona for over 2 years and this restaurant is the best we visited. Definatley worth a visit.

“Crazy, interesting, cool bar for any meals or drinks during most hours of the day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

As an African hunter myself I was very comfortable at this crazy place will all the photos, pictures, ornamentals, sculptures - you name it - in three floors. Just loved the place.

“Fun, funny bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Clearly, we had to stop here and I'm glad we did. The cocktails were excellent and the atmosphere was really fun. No one explained to us why it was a British-African bar called Obama's, but hey, we just went with it. Very eclectic decor.

“Great Way to End a Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We came here for a meal on the last night of our vacation. If you are using the city guides app note that the address is incorrect and will have you headed in the wrong direction (we wound up at the Arc based on directions from this app).

We loved the atmosphere and the drinks were good. We ordered appetizers (tapas) and these were not knock your socks off fabulous; they were ok. There were two local artists performing which was awesome! We sat upstairs overlooking the main bar and artists. There is seating available on their lower level which is where the WC (restrooms) and kitchen are. CCTV is available so everyone can see the artist, but it's not HDTV. I will make a point to stop by here the next time I'm in Barcelona.

“Great food, strategic location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Perfect location and it is very easy to find. After reading some good reviews here, I gave it a try. Reasonably priced, variety of choices and friendly staff with good English.
