Three more visits to this secret gem run by legends Fred and Mary. It never disappoints and during these very difficult times was still open every day except Tuesday (their “rest day”). We obviously love it here and have been many times on previous visits...to Benidorm but given the circumstances was so happy to see this particular restaurant open. The menu is very creative, presentation 1st class and the best part is it tastes as good as it looks. Respect and best wishes to you both. We will be back. Dave (aka Nick Nolte) and Elaine.More

After walking by so many restaurants in Benidorm's Old Town, we came across Vagabond. French bistro style, Fred (chef and owner) serves up excellent food at a very reasonable price. A definite cut above the rest, with terrific service from Fred and Mary. We will...definitely go back 👍More

Really good to see Vagabond open during the current madness. Always a warm welcome, and the most beautiful food. Fred is a true chef - not to be disparaging towards cooks, but a chef is doing something special with the best ingredients. And that’s what...this food is. Marie as front of house does an amazing job in welcoming people, and all this for an incredible (low) price. If it was any capital city you would be paying three or four times this price. An incredible experience - as always.More

First visit to this restaurant and what can I say, absolutely gorgeous the food from the starter right down to the dessert was sublime, the lovely marie served us mask and all, and the wonderful frederick mastered his art in the kitchen came out and...was so attentive and had great banter. So all in all a wonderful experience and I will definitely return thank you guys 😁 Wonderful menu, excellent choice of meat, seafood and vegetarian options available. Our mussels and shrimp with avocado starter was to die for and our main course of pork in calvados sauce and the chicken stuffed with spinach and blue cheese was superbly cooked and presented. Definitely recommend this restaurant 100% and will return.More

My Sister and I visited this restaurant and it was perfect for us. The atmosphere was lovely thanks to the owner who was welcoming and charismatic. The food was lovely and he gives you complimentary extras which was a great touch.
