Restaurant Review

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Pretoria, South Africa. I’ve been here countless times and they haven’t disappointed me so far. The interior of the restaurant is just elegant and very spacious. It just gives you a royalty feeling and if you love pictures like me, there are just so many aesthetically pleasing spots to take pictures. There are so many different sitting options available for you; both indoors and all-weather outdoor seating.

Baobab Cafe & Grill Menu

All dishes I’ve tried are just mouthwatering. You can never go wrong with whatever you choose. You can order salads, sirloin, and lamb curry.

Cuisine: African, Grill, Sushi & Vegetarian options.
Every dish was lip-smacking good.

Portion sizes: The sizes were just perfect size, not too small, and very filling.
Presentation: I’m definitely impressed at how pretty some of the dishes were.
Creativity: Not so much focus on creativity.


Lamb chops flame grilled with mashed potatoes and a side of green salad


Ice Cream & Chocolate sauce


Steak and Chips

Baobab Cafe & Grill Service

Staff: The wait staff are very friendly and have an understanding of every dish. They are very attentive and I found them to be very pleasant.
Speed: From ordering to the table, the food took 15-20 minutes.

Baobab Cafe & Grill Summary

Food rating: 4/5

Service rating: 4.5/5

Price: ZAR 160 – ZAR 400 per person

Likes: I really like the interior design of the place and how it’s just picture-perfect. The ambiance of the restaurant was relaxed. The staff is very friendly and attentive that you really don’t have to look around for them when you need something. The restaurant’s outdoor views are so amazing. I really like it and always sit outside unless the weather is too chilly. They do offer you something to keep you warm if you do choose to be outside while it’s windy or chilly which is really nice.

Dislikes: I really don’t have any problem with the restaurant other than the price of meals. But as I said, if I factor in the location, it adds up. It’s not somewhere just anyone can go if your pockets are not so good.
