I took my wife to this Oh Lobo for Valentine's day. We made the reservation two days before the 14th and were told that a spot was available at 20:30.

Arriving on time we were told that the people on our table were ready to pay and we waited for around 10 minutes between the bar and the area to hang your clothes.

Our table was clean but the place was packed and not a lot of space between the tables. This was for me the most annoying part of the evening because of the noise all the people were making (all in good mood, but you know, it's nice to hear the person you are talking too).

This night was the first night with a new menu so I had to translate the options to my wife as there was no English version of the menu available (but I was told that they would have in a couple of days).

The food and the concept is great. You pick your package which contains all sort of miniature dishes and when you are done you pick another package until you are full. You can share what you get and get to taste a lot of different things over the night.

The quality of most of the items were amazing, some were a bit too salty but mostly really spot on and well prepared.

Overall it was a good night with great company, good food, but just a bit too noisy for me.

I really like the concept of this restaurant. For a fixed price you can order as many plates you want. Each plate you can share with your friend(s). Do try the seafood and the veggie! Each time we think we can make it through four rounds, but we are usually stuffed after the third one. Fun!

We were with a family party of seven adults and having made a reservation were shown swiftly to our table upon arrival. Ambiance, decor nice. Assortment of food was good, varying meat, fish and vegetarian, timely service with a reasonable wine card. Not fine dining but a perfect place for a group and individuals alike without breaking the bank. Staff friendly and attentive explaining each of the dishes as they were served.
We left full and happy.

As always you get what you pay for. In my opinion it's a good place to have dinner and drinks with a bigger group. Food was average, some dishes better then others.
Nothing memorable but, service was good and so was the wine.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with natural products (wood, reed but it still looks nice). The staff is friendly and not too pushy when you're sitting there, giving you some room for intimacy (verbally ;) ). The food is served on wooden boards and you can order unlimited. There are several choices like meat, fish, vegetarian etc. There is also a nice dessert platter and the wine is OK. Nothing fancy, but a good taste.
Overall a very nice restaurant for good food and drinks and still affordable.
