We came as a family of four with two young kids and found the hosts incredibly welcoming. We are also South African and were so pleased that the chef not only matched the cuisine but excelled in every regard.

We visited Baobab recently and had a very enjoyable evening.
The service is provided with some humor but it did not bother us, although I can imagine some people might not think it's appropriate f.e. in a business environment.
We choose an excellent wine "Babylon" which fitted the tastes of our dishes perfectly
I myself had the Fish-ragout (curry) and my Partner choose the Rib-eye.
Food was fresh, had great taste and was perfectly cooked.
Nice and cosy interior.

Prices are according to Bruges area not the cheapest but if you ask me price/quality is OK.
We will visit there again, without a doubt.

Unusual choice for a veggie (they serve zebra!) but with a carnivore partner this is a good choice as they had three veggie starters and two veggie mains. Great atmosphere but I wouldn't recommend.to a hardcore vegan as they do serve a lot of game. Very entertaining service, good wine and pleasant surroundings- what mote could you want? Reasonable price for the centre of Bruges.

After wondering the streets of Brugge looking for somewhere to eat, we found this great place. It was empty during the slowest tourist time of the year but we decided to risk it, and were glad we did.
The owner was friendly and welcoming and we had a great chat about Africa and Australia.
The food was fresh, made with good quality produce and cooked well. The nibbles of olives, pickled herring and homemade cornbread was a great touch (the cornbread especially delicious!).
Recommend for anyone that wants something a bit different.

Nice little South African restaurant. We went there off chance as we couldnt find any spaces in the restaurants we originally wanted to eat. It is run by 2 people,one is cooking and one is serving. Although the food was very nice (we had surf and turf),the service let it down. The gentelman serving the tables wasnt enough on the ball in my opinion. the restaurant wasnt full, there were only 5 tables and we waited for our meal 1hr 30 mins.. I appreciate there was only one person cooking but this is more than we had to wait anywhere else. ever!about the meal, portions rather on a small side but food was very tasty, a steak in surf and turf was rather a thin fillet of beef but very tasty.you get a small fillet of beaf, one king prawn,two calamari rings some saucess (very tasty) and a tiny little salad.However, the chips that came with the meal tasted rather odd,in my opinion they were cooked in an old oil. shame. The wine selection is vey good though. after we finished eating,we fancied a desert but we were forgotten by the service and after waiting over 20minutes,watching the guy tyding up his counter and sorting out papers,we decided to ask for the bill. all in all, i think this place has got a great potential but you need to work on your service,definitely must be quicker and more attentive,
