The location and general decor of this restaurant is excellent; however the food was terrible with very slow service.

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.

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

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

The Armadillo is a horrible place to eat lunch. My wife and I were the only guests and yet it took years for the waitress to bring the menu - and later for the kitchen to prepare the few courses you can choose from at lunch time. The food was not better than the stuff you buy in a cheap... More

Terrible experience. After 6hrs on the road from Lusaka we were looking forward to a good zambian steak. Unfortunately we ordered a steak with pepper sauce and received a 'yet eaten piece of meat'. Simply DISGUSTING! Service very bad and slow, terrible annoying music. They will NEVER EVER see us back there Avoid this place at all times!
