I was satisfied with the service and the restaurant although glass enclosed it allowed a lot of sun to get in and for us customers to enjoy the relaxing view of the beach. I was able to enjoy my Obama sandwich and the Mojitos.

I got the chicken teriyaki from here and it was 325 pesos. The portion of chicken was miniscule for the price. My friend however got the skewers and they were only 160 pesos and had far more meat and vegetables. You are much better to head down the beach there are far better choices.

My wife and I ate lunch here on June 27, 2016. We ordered filipino dishes and we're NOT disappointed! We arrived in the Philippines from the U.S. on April 11th, for a three month long, island hopping adventure. A little back story. My family comes from a long line of excellent filipino cooks. Even among our Kapangpangan townspeople my Grandmother... More

Happened on the Obama Grill on my very first day while vacationing in Boracay. What a great find as the food was outstanding while the staff was extremely and attentive. The tuna belly is second to none and all this with a beachfront location and fantastic prices. Highly recommended.

Obama Grill is an awesome restaurant. The staff were very accommodating and polite. The food was great. I recommend the shrimp gambas and their specialty ribs. The place was located on section 1. I had a great time with a bunch of my friends. The view was amazing! Thanks Obama grill! Thank you so much MJ..
