We came here for breakfast while visiting the city. My husband and I both had breakfast burritos. They were delicious. We were staying at an all inclusive and the food was kind of bland. I am so glad we decided to stop here. The burritos were huge and had an amazing red sauce on them. Open air restaurant, so it... More

Food is very good and fresh, good prices. Good for Omelets, chilaquiles, etc. Would be great if they had Mexican coffee (de olla) every morning and not just on Sundays. They should invest in a restroom upgrade (too small for larger people) but they were clean.

We sat right out front and could watch people walk down the street which was more entertaining than you'd think. They even offered to take a picture for us without asking. We got the tortilla soup which was delicious. i had a combo plate... More

If you need a fix for good Mexican food in Playa Del Carmen, this is the place. We have been there for 3 years running, and the food has been consistently very good. Ask for the hot sauce...wow!

We were there on Sunday when they serve cafe de olla @ breakfast...this is a very traditional way to season a cup of coffee. Is very different...taste like cinnamon, cloves and sugar. I liked it. We had Ranchero eggs and eggs in salsa verde with nopales. Very good...and comes with toasts, coffee, and juice. We spend like $22US for the... More

It is really hard to pick a restaurant in the 5th ave. since they all look nice, so you end up reading all the menus they have outside, problem is, you get harassed by the waiters trying to get you to buy the lobster and steak plate; when we got to la vagabunda, the manager approached and we asked for...

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went along twice during our stay in PDC. Augusto, our waiter, was excellent and all other staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
