You get what you pay for

This is by far the cheapest place in Beau Vallon and everything here is perfectly edible. We ordered four different pizzas between four (not the four we actually wanted but they had ran out of a few ingredients; the waitress suggested a Ham and Pineapple without the ham). Each of us had a... read more

The pizza had a real firewood taste to it, the best pizza I've had by far. The fact that the beach was part of the flooring was absolutely cute. The beer was delicious and refreshing. I had an amazing dining experience for sure!

I highly, highly, highly recommend NEVER going to this restaurant. I saw that it had mixed reviews on TripAdvisor - mixed because the food was good but service was "ehh". Well, the service was not "ehh". It was horrific. My sister and I were literally at Baobob for two full hours and left having received ZERO FOOD. Apparently they ran... More

We arrived at Baobabs after reading all of the terrible reviews and expected the worst. However, we wanted a relaxed meal and as soon as our drinks arrived (after 5 minutes), we were completely happy. The staff appear to only go to new guests, so you need to grab them on the way past if you want something. We both... More

If you just want a pizza, this place is close to the beach. If you want a good pizza, keep looking. The service is slow and not as welcoming as expected and the pizzas are bad. But - the prices are ok.

We went last night at 7.15, were ignored by staff though it was not busy at that point. We chose a table and sat down and our order was taken quite quickly by a surly waitress. Our drinks arrived promptly and we were prepared for a reasonable wait as I had read previous reviews. However the restaurant started filling up... More

The setting is nice but, it took 2 hours for a mediocre pizza. We wished to have gone somewhere else. Just not good enough.

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
