Really enjoyed this restaurant, service was excellent, food was great, lovely setting. Can recommend the Lamb Potjie, not the sort of meal you can get anywhere but South Africa.

Excellent menu, good wine selection, very nice atmosphere (especially outside on the verandah). Good service. Wide selection of menu choices. Their steaks with marrow is to be recommended.

We often visit Boabab. Excellent food, service and atmosphere for general dining and business events. The food is good, upmarket steakhouse fare, not gourmet, portions large and prices reasonable. During more than 10 visits we have always experienced friendly, professional services and willingness to adapt menus for special dietary requirements.

This used to be a great restaurant. The menu has a unique African twist and the decor matches, but it is brought down by poor service and average food quality and don't bother making a reservation. They just give your table to someone else. The view is still great though.

We used to visit this restaurant a few years back. This Restaurant is in desperate need of an upgrade. The tables look shabby and grass placemats are fallling apart. The waiter that served us had an attitude problem and did not listen to us when we talked to him. The end result was that the drinks order was very slow... More

I used to visit this resturant during my varsity days as a "treat" after shopping (it's in Menlyn Park), and seriously, the whole place needs an upgrade! Maybe change an ornament or two! And the food isn't great either!

Enjoyed breakfast with my wife and parents for a birthday celebration. The service was friendly and efficient. We requested some changes to the dishes to be prepared and the chef was amicable. Food was delicious. We really enjoyed our outing!

Restaurant is average, nothing much to besides that.View is nice, value for money is okay. Service is decent. Not somewhere to go if your'e looking for fine dining but it beats the popular franchises.

At our recent trip to this establishment, the service was so poor we did not even stay for our meal. We ordered a starter and main meal. We spent some time having our drink and wondering why our starter was taking so long. 25 minutes later here comes our waiter with our main meal. When asked about the starter he... More

My husband took me to Baobab for a date night. The food was amazing and the service was great. We sat outside, which has a stunning view, but it was a bit cold. Rather book inside for colder nights! Would definitely come back.
