I stayed in Playa del Carmen for 2 months and this became my favorite restaurant. It was right on the 5th avenue very close from my apartment. The food is great and service is fast even on Sunday when they are crowded. They are also very friendly, especially Raul and Lalo. When somebody ask me where to eat in Playa... More

Can't see why they get bad reviews... we've been going there for the last 5 years for breakfast or other and everything was just great, food, service... everything, every time... if you're visiting in high season, it must be a bit more slow but... give them a break!!! SI vous êtes Québécois... c'est votre place à déjeuner!

This restaurant is very good right on 5th Ave. The service was just great! everyone was very nice and attentive. We order shrimp quesadillas and the shrimp was very fresh. I can't say enough about the service, place was very clean. If you are in Playa make sure you stop and eat here.

After a long night of cervezas and tequilas, there's no place like this one for breakfast and for hangover. Excellent food and excellent service!

Although this was not our first choice restaurant at the start of our visit, it was certainly the best one we dined at. Both the quality and the value of the food was excellent and the service was on par with other establishments we experienced during our stay. A special thank you to all the staff who helped make this... More

This Vagabunda restaurant is just great. You feel welcome every time of the day (breakfast, lunch,dinner) with good food, good drinks, good atmosphere and with waiters who serve you with heart and soul, especially Raoul and his team. I have never considered them as waiters, they are my friends for ever and I will being coming back. This restaurant is... More
