One of my fav. places on the strip - the food is always good, particularly the sub-Saharan dishes and the Peri-peri fish. The atmosphere and service was just as before. Recommended.

Both the staff and food at the African Queen are not to be missed if you visit the Senegambia Strip. From the greeting at the door to the waiting staff and the food is to be experienced. The restaurant is popular and busy but the service is great too - we felt like family by the end of our holiday.... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The fish sizzler was amazing. It's a great place to people watch but don't sir near the road or you will get hassled as it is right in the main strip.

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.

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.
