Margarita was just ok, the fajitas were very ordinary. For the "special of the day", it was nothing special!We noticed that they closed that location the same day, later in the afternoon but there's another La Vagabunda down the road on the Quinta. It seemed like low quality food to me. Deceiving.

We stopped in just before noon one day. It was not at all crowded. Maybe we hit them right when they were changing waitstaff but our service was mediocre. We had at least 4 people wait on us and we never got all of what we were supposed to get for breakfast!

My daughter had her phone stolen from the table by a waiter when clearing plates. Noticed it immediately, confronted the Manager and got a complete run-around. Went back the next day, felt threatened and in fear for my safety. Tried following-up with the main office with little no response... completely unprofessional! My recommendation is STAY AWAY!!!!!

Stopped in for lunch. Good eats and fine brews. Wasn't noisy like many other spots and seemed to be favoured by the locals too. Comfortable seating as well as reasonable prices.

This was recommended by a girl that worked in a near by shop and it was rather tasty. Staff was excellent and we didn't want for anything. For 6 people appetizers, dinner, many drinks was only 99 dollars. We said we would eat there again. Also they had street musicians that came to play they were excellent. .we tipped them... More

Great spot for a mdxi meal...large portions...reasonable prices. Staff is always pleasant. They also have a Vagabunda Fiesta restaurant off of the main highway/307 that offers a delicious seafood buffet from 1-4 on Saturday and Sunday.

The service was good. The food was good but not excellent. The waiters were very friendly but the food was about average for what we had along Quinta Ave.

Just wandering around Quinta Avenida and stopped for a quick lunch with my wife. Excellent Nachos Vulcano and even better ceviche. Very friendly staff!
