when we arrived in playa del carmen we vowed to never eat in the same restaurant twice...by the end of our stay we had eaten at la vagabunda four times! It's the only restaurant we repeated...2 breakfasts and 2 lunches.
we were hesitant at first as we had ordered tacos in a few other places on the strip and ended up paying wayyyy too much for three 2-bite tacos...not La Vagabunda...the portions were huge and all came with a free drink and chips and dips...and the food tasted great! I don't know what they put in that bean dip but I was hooked! the breakfast portions are huge...you can definately share the especial breakfast, we didn't and had to roll back to the hotel. Oh, and the coffee is brewed not instant and served in big mugs not shot glasses!
The staff were very friendly and attentive often dancing as they walked from table to table and offered each lady her own purse hook at the table.
great location on the strip with perfect people watching capabilities (count how many people scream as they pass the snake guy!) and just an all around cool and comfortable vibe.
With many tables and staff on duty even though the resaurant was always nearly full it never felt busy.
There's a reason why vagabonds like us kept going back for more!
