Today 27/3/17 I had the misfortune to stumble upon Armaddillo Cafe Bar in Gatwick's North Terminal. Myself and my partner went in for lunch. The server was very pleasant. I ordered burger and chips. My partner had the breakfast. My burger was cold all it tasted of was fat. All the items in the breakfast were also cold. I ordered... More

We enjoyed a regular and veggie breakfast fry-up with coffee before flying from the North Terminal. All staff were friendly and efficient - the food was good and the price reasonable for an airport.

Located in the terminal hall, we went here for a quick fry up. The food was fine though nothing special. Service was quick and friendly.

Welcomed and shown to a table which was cleaned there and then. Took the order quickly and substituted mushrooms for fried tomato on my breakfast order. Food arrived in about 5 minutes. Well cooked, well presented. Pleasant, clean restaurant with nice background music.

Lovely poached eggs and salmon with chipotle hollandaise sauce. Also good orange juice. My partner had a fry up and also said it was good. Service could be better but it was not bad. I would happily go back to try more of their spicy options!

Visited for breakfast (this time, have been before later in the day for evening meal), was seated quickly, and order taken in less than 5 minutes. Drinks arrived (Armadillo juice, absolutely fabulous) really quicky, followed by breakfast. Wife had scrambled eggs on toast, I went for the bacon and eggs taos style. My only complaint (OK, I like LOTS of... More

This review is for the armadillo cafe North terminal Gatwick airport. We sat for 10 minutes at a dirty table and didn't get served. A waiter came over and spoke to us in a rude manner. A family sat next to us and like us they got up and left. We went downstairs to good old Wetherspoons (always a winner)... More

No clear sign of where to queue, order was taken rapidly but after 20minutes waiting no sign of the plate coming up. I could see the cooks making plates ready but they were not taken to the customers. I enquired once more about my omelette and with no answer i left as it was time to get to the gate.... More

Having walked out of #jamies Italian after being ignored by staff for 20 minutes ( too busy laying tables during a quiet period) we came here. Attentive service, great food and hats off to Elda for looking after us so well. They even gave us a super size pancake to share. Just what airport food should be !!

Visited here before a flight and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of choice on the menu. There was a lot of healthy options too which was good to see. The service was good and our food cane quickly even though it was really busy and the portions were good for the price compared to what you can sometimes get... More
