We had heard a lot about Baobab even before we landed in the Seychelles- so many people mentioned "that pizza place on Beau Vallon beach". I think this is one of those places you have to go to if you are in Mahe at least for one meal - just because so many people talk about it! It is a... More

This place is so nice after a sunset beach walk on Beau Vallon. Good pizza and you can BYO drink! Really relaxed and nice atmosphere. Sandy floor makes you feel like you haven't left the beach.

The Pizza is known throughout the island and it is said to be the best on the island. The service is good but the only major problem is that it takes some time before you get your food. Plus because its a small restaurant, if you come on the weekends, its always so full that you may not get a... More

I've been there several times and the place is always packed in the evenings, when I had to wait and wait to be served. But the servers are kind although the menu is very limited and the tuna in the pizza seemed to be the canned one.... a pity when so much fresh seafood is available. The prices are reasonable,...

While the pizza is good, the experience is ruined by the terrible customer service. I am a Seychellois and embarrassed by the type of service we provide in a country which relies on tourism for its bread and butter. On several occasions now we have had to wait up to 1 hour to receive our food - in addition to... More

I was really looking forward to a pizza and beer here as it was recommended in my guidebook. Not long after my husband and I ordered and were enjoying our beers we spotted mice running underneath the tables and it really put us off our food. The pizza was good but at that stage the damage was done. We ate... More

I am a native of this island and this place provides one of the best pizza around. Good location, it gives way directly on the beach or you can just come in the evening and have evening meal.

The location is very good with a good view of the bay. Tried some sea food was not bad but more for tourists, the staff is quite friendly
