The food was great here; we ate dinner here 3 times in 14 nights. On the nights we tried elsewhere; we stopped for Chocolate Apache Cocktails on the way home....so basically we came here a fair bit! Sizzlers are a big thing here; too big for me but hubby nearly finished one! Bruschetta starter and prawn coconut curry was my... More

This was my favourite restaurant on the strip! The food is beautiful. I had the seafood pot and my friend had the chicken pot! We devoured the food without speaking. It has so much flavour and the rice is so soft. The service is very good and so is the entertainment. I recommend this for all, couples, friends and family!

Went back after our trip in 2012. The food was still just as good. I had the Sizzle Seafood Platter and boy was it good! The woman owner has got it all just right and this is a VERY popular eating place on 'The Strip' Extra attraction of drummers made it a great evening dining with our friends, daughter &... More

We found this place a bit "frantic"...it was so busy which is great for them but wasn't sure if they were keeping their eye on the ball so to speak. Having said that I can't fault the fish curry i ordered. It was lovely & I'm not a big fan of curry's.

After a 10 night stay, we put the African Queen at our No. 1 of restaurants! Excellent flavorsome food, great choices and good prices. Top notch service from the staff too, very friendly and attentive. A 'must go' if visiting Senegambia.

The food we had here was some of the very best we have had in the Gambia. The atmosphere was great and although the prowling owner could do with smiling occasionally, the staff make up for her.

We ate here on 3 occasions and enjoyed each meal. We had a sizzling plate which was huge and of good quality. I ate lady fish which was cooked well. We found the portions were very large. It is always busy and is advisable to book a table. The prices seem to compare with similar restaurants. It is well worth... More

The food here is always good if not a little expensive, but the menu hasn't been changed for a while and is quite limited
