Situated in Pretoria's largest shopping centre, Menlyn, the surroundings can hardly be accused of possessing an inviting or exciting ambience. Perhaps this is why the establishment is dimly lit. While it may contribute to atmosphere, the menus are somewhat difficult to read. The menu caters for a wide variety of tastes. The food is well presented, tasty and the portions... More

I do however want to make special mention of two of your staff members. Charne, who answered the phone, and helped me to make the booking, was very helpful,... More

We visited Baobab on Christmas Eve for dinner and we're disappointed by what has become of it. Apart from the terrible service we received, the food was just good enough so that you would not make too much of a fuss about the price. Their prices are now right up there with some of the best restaurants, costing us R420... More

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.
