This place is just great. We ordered the Nacho Tower and Baja Tacos and were thoroughly impressed. I couldn't finish my tower of nachos, it was too huge. The service is wonderful as well as the prices for huge portions of food and big drinks.

This place was great for huge portion foods. Great place to enjoy and not too expensive. We went when it was raining, you can watch the rain fall next to you and you stay dry.

We were not expecting much but it was surprising enoug to come back even when you have so many options on the 5th. The dishes they have from Yucatán were very well prepared. Service was good. Prices were ok.

There are two branches of La Vagabunda and both have almost full tables throughout the usual meal time hours. The staff are attentive, always busy, always friendly and the food is just good, with vegetarians well catered for.
