Convenient location, service was wonderful thank you Augusto, the quesadillas and pico were really good. The atmosphere is great with outdoor dining on 5th Ave. Lots of interesting people to watch. Good for breakfast or an easy quick meal at a reasonable price.

Very attentive service, comfortable chairs and tables, and very good food at reasonable prices.

Great authentic mexican food, great service and good prices. They also had a decent kids menu. Pleasant, relaxed open air restaurant in main shopping district. Can't wait to go back.

My family loved everything, we had fish tacos, poppers, black beans (the best), and beef tacos and sat right on 5th Avenue, watching everyone go by. A great restaurant with great food.

We went to La Vagabunda a few times when we were in Playa, it was kind of our go too place! Great service, and great food too. We really liked this spot, and would totally go again and again next time we are in Playa!

We had breakfast here almost every day. Service is good and the food is very good. Some tables are outside, right on Avenida Quinta so it's fun for people watching.

We love Playa. We love walking 5th Ave. every night and deciding which restaurant to eat at. But no matter how many places we try we ALWAYS come back to La Vagabunda! We ate there 3 nights during our recent 8 night stay. They have delicious apps(we loved the fried calamari, and of course the chips and salsa). The meals... More
