“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went 3 times whilst on holiday, service really good, friendly staff and loved the food. I had lamb kebabs 2 nights and lamb chops on the other night. It's nice to sit in the garden terrace, it's got a very relaxing atmosphere about it. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed

“Great Food, reasonably priced!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

My wife and I always pay Vagabondo a visit when in Alvor, the dishes are always tasty, they serve great Sangria and portions are always generous..

Also sitting on the roof terrace with the trees also creates a nice relaxed surrounding...

I had the chicken satay to start followed by the Monkfish and my wife had the Avocado Prawn salad followed by the Salmon main.

We managed to squeeze the chocolate Brownie and the apple crumble for desert and left feeling very satisfied..

If you're in Alvor add Vagabondo to your eating list it's a worthwhile choice and very consistent!!

“Favourite Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The Vagabondo still remains our favourite restaurant, we intended to only visit once as so many restaurants to choose from in Alvor but after such an excellent meal decided to return for our last night in Alvor. Excellent chicken with mushrooms, very large portion and the steak cannot be beaten, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Very busy at times so service can be a little slow but who wants to rush a meal there!

“First visit. Won't be the last. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Ate as a party of nine in the back garden/patio. Nice atmosphere and very good food. The meat and fish BBQ platters were very good value and the "alvor" red wine was delicious. Not just quite as good as Georgets but not far away. Service got a little sleepy at times but they. Were very busy. All in all is recommend it highly and we will be back.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have been coming to Alvor for quite a few years now and visit the Vagabondo every time usually more than once. Our favourite is to sit downstairs, wonderful food and great service. No hesitation in recommending this restaurant.
