“Amazing little restaurant in the heart of barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Despite the slightly slow service, it is definitely worth the wait- come with a group of friends or someone you can have fun conversations with! the chef likes to take his time (in a positive way) preparing his masterpieces.

When in Barcelona, a visit to this restaurant is definitely a must!

Some of the best pasta I´ve ever had. Wine pairings done by the waitresses were also excellent.

Since moving to Barcelona, I´ve made it a habit to come back at least once a week.

“Superb Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We found this place on here whilst on holiday. It is off the beaten track but thanks to the excellent free Barcelona city centre WIFI we managed to find it. It's a small restaurant with an outdoor terrace and it was pretty busy when we went on a Thursday evening. The restaurant is very stylish but unpretentious. Service was prompt and friendly. We had pasta starters, my wife had the vegetable lasagne and I had the white hare pasta. Both were delicious. Our mains were seabass and slow cooked pork. Both were superb, perfectly cooked and very tasty. Although we were full we ended up having dessert just because everthing else was so good. In all, with drinks and 3 courses, we spent 60 Euros. Everything abou the place was classy without being stuffy and the food is superb.

Obe is a bit off the beaten track, but well worth searching out, great service, atmosphere and food. This is definately one of the best places in Barcelona.

“Great value, fresh food with good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

We came across this little restaurant having been wandering around the Santa Catarina market. We took advantage of the weather and sat outside on the shaded terrace. We both had a pasta dish from the specials menu and I can honestly say it was one of the best pastas I have tasted - so fresh and well seasoned and beautifully cooked. The waitress was charming, service prompt and it was excellent value at around 6 euros for each main course (on the specials menu - a la carte higher, of course). The desserts menu looked amazing but the pasta portions so satisfying we found we didn't want to eat anything else. I live in Barcelona and try a lot of food, and I really recommend this place. Hope it flourishes!

“Obe: good place which must aim for even better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We went to Obe restaurant with my husband and child recently.
They are a new restaurant replacing the terribly bad restaurant that was located in the same place called Petit Safra (their waitresses were great people and friendly, but the manager and owners thought and behaved as they were the Ritz offering a terrible service and were unfriendly to clients).
Coming back to OBE. Their owners are young and energetic, they are friendly.
I am a neighbour so I have watched how they were setting up from scratch the place.
They treat clients well and friendly but still lack some confidence.
Food-wise, the food is good but still is not excellent but as they are young and if they want to be there for a long-term I recommend to aim to get better, to try harder because there is still room for improvement.

“Average Italian”

Absolutely nothing special. Quite nice interior and terrace, but all food was average at best. Would skip this one.
