“No thanks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

It could be great, but it suffers most from the Seychelles style of service - not much and without any effort. Expect to wait up to an hour to have your order taken, then another hour to be be served the pizza (average) and fish (birds eye?) and then wait another hour for your bill to be brought to you. Very upsetting.

“Great pizza but the service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The title tells eveything. Eat the pizza, enjoy the taste and leave! This year I missed the Baobab but last year and in 2007 I was there 4 times. The location is superb, while you are waiting for the food you can enjoy the breeze of the ocean and the sight of white sand beach.
The service is extremly slow, the waitress you can call everything but def. not helpfull and the toilette was a horror. But the pizza! My God, that was fantastic!

“Very good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

When you see the menu you think the price is too high for a place so simple as Baobab. The hostesses are not too friendly. But the food is just gorgeous! It is very fresh, the portions are big and everything is sooo tasty! I recommend you have the pizza or lasagna. As for beer - Seybrew is quite nice.

“Excellent pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

The Baobab has been serving excellent pizzas and good pastas for years at surprisingly modest cost. You will eat to the sound of the sea and your feet in the sand. Nothing fancy but well cooked food
