First time

we have been coming to Benidorm for years and this is the first time we have managed to get a table. A small but cosy comfortable restaurant, imaginative food with a twist, good service and price, will definitely be going again. Well done

I had the pork in strawberry and cassis sauce. It was amazing I couldn't get over how well the sauce worked with the pork. The Vagabond remains at the top end of the Trip Advisor chart because the chef and his staff provide excellent food and welcoming service. We always enjoy an evening there.

Small but lovely restaurant. Great and varied choice of food beautifully cooked and great prices. The owner was very friendly and produced a cake and glass of bubbly for my birthday for the seven of us. Very nice gesture. I would recommend you book as it is very popular.

Nice variety, good value and pleasant service. A sort of french feel to the menu and the chef comes out and chats to the customers

The table was decorated beautifully and banners had been placed on the wall - how lovely! The food was delicious and after we had finished the main, our... More

We visited the Vagabond last year and it was so so good that on our return we booked in advance to secure our table. We were six friends visiting our friend who lives just outside Bendorm. We also happened to be celebrating a birthday. I can't remember what everybody ate but all the plates went back empty. The food is... More

Very friendly atmosphere and tasty food! I enjoyed dishes and was completely satisfied and happy. That kind of restaurants where you can spend whole day enjoying food, talking to new people, drinking cocktails and laughing.
