On a very hot day we decided to stop for lunch at the Obama Grill. Inside the air conditioning was a welcome break from the heat. The staff was very attentive and we found that the menus had a good selection of dishes. I chose a seafood dish and was very pleased. Good prices, good food and nice location.

My uncle brought us here for a quick lunch after my wedding. I found out its his' fave restaurant in Boracay. The food is spectacular! We ate lechon kawali, bulalo, tuna head, etc. All were mouthwatering and were good for both local and foreign palates. Highly recommended!

The restaurant is super cute and the food was tasty. The drinks were a bit watered down but super cheap so I'm not complain. I wanted to eat Filipino food so I didn't try the ribs but people around me raved about them.

My husband and I had a nice and serene lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful, readily available but unobtrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves especially when the fresh seafood grill we ordered arrived. Simple, unpretentious food but thoroughly delicious.

I had the pleasure of organizing my friend's surprise dinner for their 1st anniversary date in this restaurant. The staff of obama, especially their manager MJ Alcarde, were very accomodating to my requests in order to make the surprise a success! The food was also great, worth the price and the live band ambience made the visit more memorable. Will... More

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.
