We read about this restaurant on trip advisor, and agreed to try it. It was the most excellent food and service ever to a very low price. The waiter and the Chef as well, was very loving and caring. A great atmosphere and good personal contact with the chef, who went into the restaurant to make sure that everyone was... More

We booked in advance, we were told no deposit required. When we turned up we were turned away even though we had phoned to confirm that we were attending. There was a large group of us looking forward to the food due to the good recommendation of one of our party who had visited many times. I'm not used to... More

Very small portion of garnish ( some veg...etc ) .The food that we have was no more than expected for this price.... More

Outstanding food in a lovely setting. The Vagabond is an intimate venue situated in the old town. The food is amazing and very reasonably priced. Fred's personal touch sets this venue apart from the rest. Anyone visiting Benidorm needs to visit The Vagabond! Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Again dinner with friend , and again fail, my steak was over cooked and with cold garnish. My partner fish and it was full with oil. The only good thing was the waiter, i don't remember the name Ogen or Owen, good service from him

Our favourite restaurant in Benidorm - the food is out of this world!! Mussels to start is a must - the sauce so different from anything else I've tasted and absolutely amazing followed by fillet steak cooked to perfection with a choice of sauces (the red wine one is my favourite!) The a la carte menu is so reasonably priced... More

You must go here! A quaint little restaurant nestled in the old town with attentive and lovely staff plus food nothing short of exquisite. I have been to mitchelin star restaurants which are not a patch on this establishment. Thd mussels entrée are to die for! And the menu is very reasonable to boot. A must visit we will go... More

Over the past 7 years I’ve eaten at quite a few restaurants in Spain and the UK, but on a recent visit to Spain, I decided to head to Benidorm again predominantly to try The Vagabond which I had read so many excellent reviews of on Trip Advisor, the restaurant is easy to find from the town square, it’s the...

Could write screeds of narrative about this place and if Tripadvisor had a 6 Star rating this place would get it. Our first time here and by the number of returning customers we viewed warmly welcomed by the Staff and owner it's no wonder this place can pack out weekends and turn away passing trade ?? If your coming to... More

Visited the Vagabond on our recent trip to Benidorm, had read the reviews on tripadvisor. We have visited Benidorm every year for the last 7 years, and often disappointed with the food served in many restaurants, not this time though!! Well what can I say about the Vagabond, lovely intimate restaurant easy to find just off a side street in... More
