I'm sure that the steak I had is the only bland food on their menu but if you pay so much food everything must be exceptionally good. Their calamari wasn't too bad. I ordered dessert and told it was unavailable because they ran out and strangely it was still afternoon so they forgot to prepare a new batch in the... More

Don't get scared off by the statutes at the entrance. Inside, this restaurant is very welcoming and spacious, with a lovely terrace and interesting decoration. The food was very convincing, served nice and hot and deliciously cooked!

Luxury price for luxury venue by local standards. Pretoria isn't Seattle but Baobab gives something extra for something extra. If you want your lunch or dinner to stand out, there are not that many options around here, and Baobab delivers that. Though it's not quite yet fine cuisine by overseas standards; you won't beat it in this area.

Tonight was our 4th time over about 8 years to the Boabab. It is a bit more classy and more expensive than the normal restaurant we can afford. However, each time we leave feeling it was worth every cent. We were 7 in our group, with 6 different dishes, mine steak, others fish, mexican, salad, maluti chicken and a hamburger.... More
