“Benidorms No1 By Far!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Our January visit was the 3rd time we have had the pleasure of dining at Vagabond. Frederic & Marie are excellent hosts as well as fantastic chefs, whilst Mairead excelled at front of house.
3 courses for €13.95 for food of this quality is outstanding & nothing is too much trouble. We were even given some salad dressing to bring home as my partner raved about her Caesar Salad so much!
Congratulations on being No1 on T/A, very well deserved & I hope people take the time to book & enjoy your fantastic food, service & charm. As to miss Vagabond on a trip to Benidorm would be a crime...

“Fabulous ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have been visiting benidorm for many years and this is the first time we have visited Vagabond , we have been missing an absolute treat !

Fred , Marie and Andrea are marvelous hosts , it's like you are visiting there home , in between courses Fred comes out to chat with the customers and his passion for his restaurant is there for all to see .

As for the food at €13.95 for 3 courses , we would pay £30/40 a head back home for food of this standard , it really is top notch.

We visited 2 nights out of the 5 we were in town , both times the food was superb .

Can't wait to come again next time we are in town .

Dave and Lisa Mather

“Always excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We returned for our annual trip to Benidorm and booked with Fred for our first night, by email. We had decided that we would make more effort to visit different restaurants this year, but that plan went in the bin as soon as we tasted Fred's ginger and pumpkin soup!

We booked for two more evenings. Three evenings spent at the Vagabond out of six and every one excellent! Fred and Marie were faultless hosts as always and new since our last visit, the lovely waitress who switches effortlessly between native Spanish and native Geordie!

The Vagabond is as much a part of our holiday in Benidorm as the sun and the beaches.

“perfect as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Two visits to Vagabond this holiday and as always excellent value for money.
There is a great choice on the menu and the 14 euro set meal is worth double the cost.
Fred, as ever is the perfect host and the welcome and attention you are given is second to none.
No visit to Benidorm is complete unless you dine at Vagabond.

“Great little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Booking is to be advised. The food was so tasty and presentation was great. There was no rush to get us through the meal. The set menu is brilliant at under 14Euros and the choice is superb.
Fred is a great host along with his wife and the waitress.
We will be back next time we are in Benidorm. Thank you
