I had shrimp & avocado to start and it was the size of a main meal! The food is cooked to order and Fred... More

Just got back from Benidorm. My son and i eat here 3 times the service food and cost were second to none. If you want great food at a good price The Vagabond is the place to eat.

It was the setting of a lovely evening with our best of friends and I was more than ready to depart from my 2x a day fishy diet. The filet au poivre which I ordered was beautifully cooked. The right kind of 'medium' - just the way I like it. My good mate raved about his suffed chicken with spinach... More

We came here as a special treat for our wedding anniversary two years ago and because we hadn’t booked we couldn’t get a table. So this time I reserved a table early to make sure we got in. The restaurant is fairly small and cosy and decorated in French style. When we walked thru the door we were greeted by... More
