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

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
