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

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
