I must admit the food wasn't bad, but I wouldn't recommend coming here with all the other great restaurants in the strip. The most annoying part was that the staff allowed 'bumsters' into the restaurant, who then tried to persuade you to give them money whilst we were eating. There are enough hasslers on the streets so it's nice to... More

Fast service, good range of dishes and drinks. National and international ones. Sitting on a roofed terrace which is always crowed and therefor noisy. Nothing for a romantic diner... But recommendable - ate there twice!

Never had a bad meal at the African Queen. Service is efficient and the Beef Tahonga is always good. Reasonably priced as well.

Not knowing very many places in the area, we decided to get a taxi to the Senegambia strip and dine in the African Queen on our first night in The Gambia. The service was alright but it is not a restaurant that I would return to or particularly recommend. The food was ok - we tried a fish dish and... More

Recommended to go here by another traveller who raved about it. Was excellent and would certainly go back if I were in Gambia again. Good 'African' atmosphere, staff couldn't be more helpful. Passing street entertainers amusing and some great drumming all added to the experience. Just take some small notes to hand out and they'll be quite happy and will... More

Loved the food, and the service was really good. The waiter was so welcoming and considerate. We tried some of the Gambian dishes, and my mum got a coconut curry which was incredible. We went to a different restaurant each night but this was our favorite, so we returned on our final night. The fresh fruit shakes were delicious too!... More

Brilliant food served quickly as not so many tourists about due to Ebola situation NO EBOLA IN BAMBIA Fab place to view the colourful locals going by Can be off putting due to the fact everybody seems to smoke at the table which is unpleasant for non smokers not used to having to put up with smoking in the restaurant

having visited this restaurant several times in March during the last two years I was very disappointed when we were here this week. Firstly I found the food was barely warm/ cold and also surprisingly tasteless which is not what I have come to expect. Even more disappointing was the service. It was like they worked hard to get customers... More

Just got back from Gambia, been to the African queen many times, food always fresh and pipping hot. Staff always on hand if you need anything, nothing is ever too much trouble. Service with a smile. It's not cheap but it's true what they say you pay for what you get. See you all next time I'm in Gambia.
