Truly a wonderful restaurant, the food portions are a good size, the ambience is rustic and romantic, the service was really great! Their food quality is brilliant and their presentation is good as well. I loved their Boabab sunset cocktail, it was a big proper size! We would recommend this restaurant for couples and friends.

I've been here a couple of times this year because I can't get enough of their "Bacon, Avo and Cashew Nut Salad"(I'm drooling as I write this haha). They serve great drinks and have a decent selection of wines. I've also had their sushi (not a sushi fan in general though), oxtail, tempura prawns, chicken livers and their cheesecake (ugh,...

Food was like melting in your mouth! Very nice decor, you have the option to sit by the patio overlooking outside. Smoking is allowed by that end. Restaurant is huge and would be nice venue for a birthday party or any other large gathering.

If you are looking for a good restaurant with exquisite view and with outstanding smoking lounge than this is the place. Very good food and average to good service. Not to be missed

We visited this restaurant several times in the past for a number of reasons: good food, nice atmosphere, and nice view on Pretoria east. However, today's visit was a big disappointment because the food we ordered (cajun chicken wrap sweet chili mild) was not fit for consumption. The chili was not mild at all but an attack to the taste... More

Where Baobab has always been a favourite restaurant for the last 10 years, it's now a bitter disappointment. My husband and I went there on Sunday evening for a "sure to be delicious" dinner and it was definitely not up to our expectations. I ordered the Maluti Chicken (my all time favourite. .. well used to be) and my chicken... More

The food in this restaurant never fails to please the taste-buds. Nice variety and always a success when treating family from out of town.

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
