We came here for breakfast and time ran out before we could try it for dinner. The breakfast was great. We ate here two days in a row and both days I had the Poblano. It was sunny side eggs with a poblano and corn sauce. Coffee and juice for 100 pesos. The service is great and the selection is... More

We walked forever down the famous 5th Ave. looking at every menu until my friend found what she was looking for at this place - what she calls a "real" burrito! Hooray! We can eat now! And what luck, as we had Bob (Roberto) as our server who made the whole dinner that much more FUN! Thanks Bob!

After walking past so many places trying to drag you in, we came across this little beauty by accident. Traditional theme. Wide menu variety. Service impeccable. We have visited more than once and would not hesitate to recommend to other people. A truly pleasurable experience. Thank you La Vagabunda.

It's across from our favorite boutique hotel. My spouse loves their Chila Quiles, reputed to be the most frequently ordered menu item. I love an omelet, it is stuffed with spinach and cheese and topped with a creamy Parmesan sauce. I always ask for extra sauce.

This restaurant was close to our hotel and as we walked near to many times and saw it busy thought we would give it a go. The food was decent but not cheap for what we had compared to other restaurants in the area. The waiter had a very annoying habit of selling up at every opportunity.......(trying to get us... More

I went there often. The food was great, the staff was great and the food was great. Very relaxed atmosphere. I went there 3 times one day. I was in a bit of a hurry my last morning there and they did a great job of getting me on my way to the airport.

La Vagabunda was recomended by the Tripadvisor and the mexican friends living in Playa. We decided to try and we completely fell in love with this place! We are not sure if all of this is because of extremely cultural, sweet and professional staff or great, great quesadillas, burgers and breakfast! If you have no idea where to spend a... More

During our recent stay in Playa we tried several restaurants but kept coming back to La Vagabunda! It was twice as good for half the price of some fancier joints. It was our absolute favorite in Playa!
