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

For the type of food It was overpriced. I recommend eating away from 5th avenue. You'll get a lot more for your buck and great taste.

Our holiday rep recommended La Vagabunda to us and we weren't disappointed. The food was plentiful, relatively cheap and tasted great, we were both stuffed. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was brilliant. I would highly recommend if your looking for Mexican food on 5th Ave.

We ordered exclusively Mexican dishes and were really pleased with the quality and the quantity. Great Chimichangas among other items. Galindo was... More

Stopped by here for a quick bite to eat. Not cheap but location probably demands that. Had some burritos, good size and tasty. They seemed to have a good selection of meats and fish on the grill if one were tempted to splash out a bit. Service was also good and menu in English for the non Spanish speakers. For... More

Our dinner was great! We had a party of 9 and Galindo treated us so well. We ordered so much but what stuck out was the volcano nachos, fish tacos, steak, the stuffed jalapenos, and guacamole. The drinks were really well made as well! Definitely would come back!

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
