We had a delicious meal served by extremely friendly and welcoming staff. We had prebooked our table for 6 and everything was ready despite arriving early. The food was freshly cooked and just a little different to the usual choice. I would thoroughly recommend the beetroot ravioli.

My family and I had the opportunity to share Christmas day lunch with the Chef and staff of Obe on our recent vacation to Barcelona. Delightful meal coupled with attentive and pleasant staff resulted in an outstanding experience that I would encourage all to enjoy. It was a pleasure and honor to be a guest at this establishement.

I came across this restaurant by accident. The well known bistro in the nearby market had a long queue and we were hungry. We had just attended a wonderful lunchtime flamenco guitar concert at the Palau de la Musica. My expectations of Obe were not high but the fixed priced menu looked good and reasonably priced. But my expectations were... More

We stumbled upon this delightful restaurant on our first day in Barcelona. We ordered the set lunch, which is reasonably priced at €12.90 with 1st & 2nd courses, drink, bread and dessert. The bread was served steaming hot and fresh. I had hamburger for 2nd course and happy to say that it's one of the best I have had in... More

Found this restaurant at about 3pm and stopped for a late lunch. Good ambience, staff were helpful and attentive. Interestingly there were about a dozen others there and they were all locals - I always think this is a good sign. My wife had a spaghetti bolognese (which she said was the best she'd tasted), I had a goat's cheese... More

We've never stoped here to eat, but we always come back for a short sangria/olive stop. The staff always gives you a freindly smile and you feel very welcome.

Being Americans, we were ready to eat much earlier than Barcelonians...this restaurant accommodated us at 8 PM, and presented a wide range of options that accommodated gluten free, low fat, and low roughage diets. Great selection of wines.

We stayed in this restaurant for lunch; they had a interesting menu, maybe with not so much dishes to choose but very well described and good price. Everything that we eat was excellent and very well presented. The staff are very friendly. The only think that they have to improve is the timing between the dishes because it was a... More

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
