Very good and varied art selection. A charismatic gallery owner with excellent English, someone that will go out of his way for you. And great deals. Too good to be true. Well.....its not true. He is great at convincing the buyer that they don't need...More

This guy has to been put behind bars. Makes his living by stealing from people. We paid him a lot of money and he said he would send us the paintings. Ends up; he will send nothing and just sells it to another person. We...More

We had a good experience at Gallery Ubago. I read the other reviews so I was skeptical. The gallery is quite large so you will probably find something you will like. We bought several pieces at a very fair price. The owner helped us pack...More

We had a very positive experience at Ubago gallery. The owner worked with us to find four pieces that we love, within our budget. We took the paintings home with us, and they were carefully rolled in a protective tube.
