Cheap and tasty

Service is very slow but it is always worth the wait for their pizza or lasagne. No other dishes were as tasty the few times I went there

This is no fine dining, but with the pricey food in Seychelles, this is easy on the pocket and is fun to check out. Heard about this from a local and went in a night, and had to wait for a table. The place was packed and we noticed that most people seated are also waiting for their food. But... More

It was lovely to go to a restaurant in Seychelles where the food didn't cost an arm and a leg. Baobab is located right on the beach in Beau Valon, the service isn't great and the pizzas aren't anything special, but it put food in our stomachs nonetheless. The toilets are clean and it was really nice to be right... More

When in Mahe and really want something different than hotel meals, Baobab is the place to be. The food is ok, mostly pizza, but the good thing is the environment. Trully authentic, feel like a local!

Good food but be prepared to wait. They should also improve on the service - too slow as there are limited servers.

OK, so service is slow, and the waitresses a little surly, but you 'get what you pay for. This is not fine dining - but fun and the pizzas are excellent. The location is good, right next to the sea. The sandy floor is fun. I think the English complain too much! We went one night when it was crowded,... More

Pizza not bad, location makes up for it as right on the beach with beach sand underfoot. And that is were it ends...... service is ridiculously slow, not even a bother. Boy if i had the money to buy that place and turn it around it could be a gold mine..... Owners if you read this, wake up you are... More
