“Miguel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Back in Playa, went to La Vagabunda, Miguel recommended their lunch special so my wife and I split it. Great, but too much to eat for us. Possibly the best value in Playa for any meal.

“Pricey but great quality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We were staying at a nearby resort and rarely travel into PDC, but as the day was cloudy and a bit "drippy" we decided to venture forth, shop and eat.

Found this restaurant that recently changed hands, names and location. Can't remember what it was called before, but they had a reputation for good Mexican food. We weren't disappointed! On the pricey side for Mexican food, but it was very well prepared and the service was fast, efficient and very friendly and accomodating.

Bit crowded. Great signs on the walls. And you won't leave hungry, lol!

Their aracharra is THE BEST and their equivalent of taco soup was outstanding along with their condiments. Very fresh and tasty!
Take a look at my attached photos and you can see what I mean.
Good stuff Maynard!

“excellent food and good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The food was excellent and the prices were quite reasonable. A real value. The service staff was very attentive. The fish tacos were excellent... and the margaritas too. The location is great to have a meal or a few drinks and watch the crowds.
