Too expensive for what it is

Food was very tasty and quite sophisticated in terms of ingredients and combination of flavors. Nevertheless, portions were quite small and dinner quite expensive. Staff not friendly and quite rude! Beaulieu has many restaurants, next time I wouldn't visit African Queen again.

It was not the first time we went there. Food is good, but the service is snob, out of place and badly mannered. Besides, when ordered the wine, the waiter looked at us as if what we ordered was not enough (two glasses of local white wine, instead of a bottle). On the receipt, instead of 8 euros per glass,...

We went at the African Queen in August and were gladly surprised with the food quality. We took as a main dish the grilled chicken with its potatoes marinated with herbal from the region. The truffle pasta was not bad as well but is not really a MUST to try as this place is not really specialized in pizza but... More

We ate here in August 2015. I revisited the restaurant after many years and we will not dine here again. The menu has an fine selection and the food we got was okay but overpriced and the staff was arrogangt with poor service. We left no tip. Try one of the many other restaurants along the harbor.

The African queen has the yummiest pizza and service one could ask for but of course comes at the expense of $$$. With an amazing view of the boats and a full moon I had a great time!!!

We ate lunch outside overlooking the yachts and the sea. The food was very good, the pizza base was thin and crispy, and the salad niçoise was served from a huge bowl enough for two people. The desserts were delicious too. The trolley was brought to the table for us to make our selection. The bill was in line with... More

After a yacht tour around the area, we were ready for a light lunch. We were skeptical of a restaurant with a name that sounds so touristy but were happily surprised by our experience which was an elegant, delicious lunch with attentive service. We ordered the caprese salad and truffle pizza, while our son opted for a basic marguerita pizza.... More
