This restaurant has now closed permanently.
Obu is named after a town in Japan and opened in December 2014. In June 2016, Joël Timmermans (Dutch, but raised in Marbella) bought the business from his friend Francisco (who owns BB8 – Spanish/Galician food – in C/Blanquerna, Palma). Joël has more than a decade’s experience in the hospitality trade, and has lived on Mallorca for a few years.
Obu Ceviche & Sashimi Bar
Spanish, English and German
The smart ceviche and sashimi bar has an intimate feel, with polished wooden floors, subtle lighting, and an attractive bar with stools (a good option for those visiting on their own).
Chef Alejandro still heads the open kitchen, creating Pacific food. The menu is the same for lunch and dinner, with a small cover charge which includes invitation dish from the kitchen. This latter dish is usually a Japanese wakame seaweed salad.
Since Joël took over Obu, he has introduced a more elaborate wine list, a variety of loose-leaf teas, and created a new website.
We ate well-presented sashimi of three fish (tuna, salmon, seabass); three fish ceviches, and 8 pieces of hosomaki – all more than enough for two to share. Accompany your food with a Pisco Sour or other cocktail.
Obu can be rented for private events, with a tailor-made menu, and takes 16 seated at tables and 10 on bar stools indoors.
We love…the freshness and flavours of the food.
