Don't let the funny name scare you away. The best table service ever and exquisite salads and main dishes.

Wonderful restaurant, very good food and a clever menu, only drawback is that none of the staff speak English and they don't have an English menu, so you need to be able to understand/read some Spanish.

We totally enjoyed our meal in every way. The service was excellent along with the food. We had lobster, lamb, steak and crab with great sauces and presentation. The dessert, brandy, tea and wine were a wonderful addition.

Armadillo is a rare find. Just when you think you're about to run out of breath in the rarified and busy streets of Bogota you find this place, tucked near the hills of an already hilly part of town. My woman and I followed the suggestions of our knowledgeable and competent waitstaff and it was delicious throughout. Wine choices were... More

We stumbled out our hotel for a walk after a long haul flight from London and popped into this reataurant. The staff were friendly and attentive. We both had Pasta dishes, the Vegetable Ravioli and Black Linguini Lobster. Both dishes were superb, beautifully presented and tasty. Try the Red Colombian beer, also a top choice. Would recommend this place.

Nice atmosphere, personalized service, a wide assortment of dishes available as well as a good wine list. The open chimney another plus on chilly evenings. Food quality very good.

Walked into this restaurant by sheer luck, and it was one of the most pleasant experiences during my stay in bogota. The food was absolutely delicious. I had a peruvian ceviche as an appetizer. The fish was absolutely fresh, with the perfect amount of lime, tangy twist and crunchiness to it. As a main course I had Aubergine Raviolies. I... More

We had dinner at Armadillo a few weeks ago when visiting Bogota. It was a chilly night so sitting by the fireplace was a pleasure. Lots of little armadillo sculptures by it, very cute. The venue is cosy, nicely set up and inviting. The food was excellent, we both had fish dishes (the tuna and the salmon) and profiteroles for... More

Walked here from our hotel. Great choice. Professional wait staff was on top of everything. Party of 6, no reservations and no problem. Interesti g decor. Good menu with variety. Some dishes better than others of course but everyone enjoyed their meal. Reasonably priced.
