“Best Pizza on the planet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This famous institution serves the best open oven pizzas that I have ever tasted anywhere! The service is the fastest on Mahe and the atmosphere, as you sit with your feet in soft white sand, literally metres from the lapping waves, is incomparable! Get there early...or you will be waiting in the only restaurant queue on the Islands. Cheapest eat -out meal in all of Seychelles, too.

“Delicious Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We went back twice for the pizza. Simple, but delicious. It was a fun atmosphere with tables in the sand. The staff were friendly and the service was very good. The price point is perfect. Definitely give it a try, you won't be disspointed.

“Amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The location and the atmosphere is truly amazing right on Beau Vallon Beach. It was one of the very few affordable Restaurant we found on Seychelles. The Pizzas are very nice, we ate there 3 times during our stay. It gets very busy, so come early. Loved the place!

“Pizzas.......in the end”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The pizzas are good but the service is hit and miss to say the least.
First time on a Saturday it took 1hr 20mins for the pizzas to arrive but second time, got there as it opened at 6.30pm and we were all done by 7.15pm.
Reasonable pizza, reasonable cost but only go if you can get there early or if you are not hungry and dont mind waiting to build up an appetite.

“Nice pizzas on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

My husband and I had trouble finding good places to eat in Beau Vallon, which is why we visited Baobab Pizzeria twice! The pizzas were really tasty and of good size. We also tried the fish and chips, which were to our delight. The location on the beach is fantastic and the service good. The interior is a funky mix between Seychellois and diner. The only thing I found negative was that they didn't always have everything on the menu. They were out of garlic bread both times we were there and the second time they didn't have the local Seybrew beer (so we had Eku instead, which is ok but not good like Seybrew). Never the less, this is a good eatery were you really get value for your money.
