This was recommended to us by a friend who had dined here several times and she advised us to e-mail in advance for a reservation. We arrived at 7-30pm and were warmly greeted and shown to our table by Owen who asked us if we'd dined there previously, as we hadn't he fully explained the menu and took our drinks... More

Had a fantastic evening with my two grown up sons. From the email/phone contact through to the fond farewell from Owen and Fred I cannot fault this restaurant. The Vagabond is quite small but everyone was given that real personal service that you would expect from a high class restaurant. Owen, front of house, knew the menu like the back... More

Second time at this place, first time being three years ago on our last visit to Benidorm. Have to say it more than lived up to our previous experience, the food is simply fantastic and the personalities of the staff just bring the experience to a whole new level. Can't recommend it highly enough, if I'm ever back in Benidorm... More
