It's a nice Restaurant. The Food (especially the Steaks) is very good. The Restaurant has a nice atmosphere and on summer days it offers nice places at the terasse

The waiters at the door were very friendly and welcoming which is always great to see. Starters were oysters (flippen spectacular and will go back fo more. Incredibly... More

Having been to this restaurant previously about 4-5 yrs ago, the decor/seating were fantastic/clean and good food being served! Though there are some construction works taking place around the mall, however, one cannot help themselves but notice how dusty the place is and chairs/tables look tired and the place is in need of a makeover. Though the food is still... More

We had some friends over and they accommodated us in every need nothing was to much and they really took care of us... The service was good, the scene, the people, and of course the wine and the food, I'll recommend everything we shared all because we couldn't get enough, so much that it was a sad tragedy that we...

Had a family function at Baobab. The food was wonderful and portions were decent. Regarding the price, I would place it as medium. The only problem I had was regarding the tempo of service. We waited long for our food and there was no apology or explanation for the long delay in between courses. On a positive note, the desert... More

The decor is full of earth tones and with lots of wood and greenery. The view is as good as you can get in this part of Pretoria. The food was good but it took nearly an hour to come even though we came between three and four on a Saturday afternoon. Others seemed to have arrived and received food... More

Beautiful outside area and a higher floor up that also has a view. If it gets to cold they bring you blankets. Love their Malay Sole - its delicious - good vibe, good food - and they will go out of their way to move you to a spot you want if full when you arrive. Enjoy eating there

Lovely steak house, with an authentic feel. It is slightly pricier than the usual restaurant, but really worth the experience of lovely friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Mist fans keep you cool outside on hot evenings, and DEFINITELY sit outside on the deck - lovely atmosphere. Be careful of the Camembert starter.. it's literally an entire round of cheese and...
