I had one of the best tasting flank steaks (can't remember the menu name) that I have ever tasted... and the bill including the drinks...was so small... that I had to read it twice to make sure it was accurate......

Our friend Silvia, who lives in Playacar, brought us to La Vagabundo for dinner - and I'm glad she did. The restaurant was great - with fantastic food. I had the chirozo quesadilla - it was huge. We were with seven other people who all had different dishes - not a complaint among them. Some of the sauces are really... More

We only ate breakfast here but it looked to be an excellent choice for lunch and dinner as well. The fruit smoothies are delicious and you should definitely try one - large... More
