My friend and I seen that vagabond had been rated #1 in Benidorm so we naturally went to see what all the fuss was about. We were greeted by the lovely staff who made us feel very welcome. The food was delicious and portions of were generous! Reasonably priced and situated in the quaint old town area.

Great little restaurant in old town. Fred (the owner?) very welcoming. menu small but excellent, service first class and really good atmosphere. Surprisingly inexpensive and good wines at reasonable prices. All in all, excellent. Certainly a place to go back to.

Had a lovely meal here in December, the soup taster was lovely, the mussels were the best we have ever tasted and the sauce was to die for, we both had the steak which was cooked to perfection, wine was delicious and the service was excellent.

So they say that the best food comes from France. In fact it comes from The Vagabond restaurant in Benidorm. We booked by email in advance on the day and our host replied immediately. This restaurant is a must visit - the meal was just wonderful. You get a try with the soup which my husband nearly went for but... More

After numerous annual visits to Beni with my work colleagues my partner, with not much persuasion needed talked me into returning for a short break over the Christmas period insisting that we have a meal at The Vagabond as she had heard me praise the restaurant so much in the past. I booked for the evening of Boxing Day and... More

After celebrating New Year in Spain I was fortunate to eat again in Vagabond not once but twice. The food as always was excellent , I had mussels both times for my starter and they were delicious. I tried the chicken stuffed with walnut and dates and I think for now that this is my favourite dish. Fred the owner... More

Whilst in Benedorm over Christmas we decided to have a romantic night out & as The Vagabond was rated number one this was our chosen destination. We could not have been happier with our choice, both me & my partner agreed it was beyond perfect. The host was so warm & welcoming, chatting & engaging. The atmosphere was charming, quaint... More
