Disappointing

Extremely slow service and food of only average quality, despite prices on par with the very good restaurants in Livingstone.

Armadillo is now closed. We have eaten there on a few occasions previously but when in Livingstone in September 2014 and January 2015 we found them to have closed up and can see no sign of what is happening. Sad really, as they were quite nice, good setting, and nice meals.

For those wanting Asian fusion, as well as the certified carnivores, this place is the best for you! Nice staff, excellent cooking and most of all a meal enjoyed in beautiful Livingstone.

Such a good restaurant away from the usual and ordinary. Near the CBD and proof that not all good places have to be near the Victoria falls.

We visited the restaurant twice since there are not many choices for vegetarians. Both times the food was half cooked and smelled of fish and meat like it had been cooked with the meat dishes. One of us is allergic to fish and ended up with rashes and reactions! When you call a waitron to ask or place and order,... More

My family and I ordered fried bream and chips, because you can't visit Livingstone and not have bream! The bream arrived still raw inside. The sauces etc were limited. The drinks menu was also limited. The service from our waitress was quite lacking as well....she seemed quite aloof. I wouldn't recommend this place at all.

This place is a bit away from the Mosi-oa-Tunya center, but it is still a great place. It`s a bit fancy and it looks expensive, but it`s great value. It was very quiet when I was there, but the food was excellent .

There are no words for how crap this place is. Except these... We settled on a great selection of Indian food until we ordered and were told they no longer do Indian and all the other food not available. We had the grill but it was no good. When the waiter asked me how my food was he walked away... More
