We visited The Vagabond restaurant on the last night of our holiday and we were not disappointed! We booked a table in advance and were happily welcomed into the restaurant, despite being a little early. The staff go above and beyond which is what makes a real difference from other places we have visited. We were talked through the menu... More

Chef came out for a chat and the two of them were great company for adults and kids alike. Cosy restaurant in a quiet street... More

Came here for a meal with my wife. The restaurant is nothing special, to be fair neither is the food. In fact the food combinations are a little weird, but do work together. The main attraction for us is simply, the owner and the guy who works front of house. I won't say too much, but Basil Faulty springs to... More

We chose to try this restaurant back in June based on its great online reputation. We were not disappointed. The set menu was delicious and great value. The Vagabond is a Benidorm rarity run by a real French chef with personality and passion. Great staff. Great value. Leave a bad review at your own peril as you should never criticise... More

We went on the recommendation of people we met in Benidrom and booked for same night, last table but excellent service, friendly ++++ and great food, made to feel like we'd known them for years. Great Place in the old town, great food and reasonable prices

The food was so good we went back again. Food is cooked to order and you get a top quality 3 course meal for only €15.95. It’s a small intimate restaurant in the Old Town and it’s not just the food, the staff makes it an experience, they are so welcoming. Fred and his Wife Marie do all the cooking... More
