My friends and I had lunch here last week. We shared nachos and chicken enchiladas. Both were very good and the portions were nice also. The location is great and the wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend

This has good mexican food for a good value. Also, it has Mexican music, instead of high-volume electronic as most of the other places in Avenida 5.

The service was slow and inattentive and the food was just ok. Staff more interested in tips than refilling your coffee.

Everytime we go to Playa del Carmen, we go here for Nachos. Seriously, the best Nachos along 5th, we even make trips specifically to go from the resort to here... The service is always great!! You need to go here!!!

After walking past La Vagabunda a couple of times and always seeing a queue outside, we were intrigued. So we finally went for breakfast one morning (early on, as they fill up quickly). We had the eggs bene which was lovely and cooked perfectly, accompanied by a hash brown and some fresh fruit. I would recommend a visit, and it's... More

The food and service were excellent and our waiter, Augusto was friendly and accomodating. Had a great meal which included the best cheese natchos and the baby back ribs were excellent too. The kids menu was great and dinner was enjoyed by all. I highly recommend it and would have gone back a second time if I could have.

The best green juice (nopal, spinach, orange juice and cucumber) you will ever try! Freshly made along with several other choices for your inner vegetarian. I was spoiled several times, the food is creative but not wonderful, the service is superb, great ambiance, I was disappointed from time to time on the many occasions I attended this restaurant, but I...
