We went to Ladybug based on other trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Wait staff was extremely friendly, food was great. We had the chicken and shrimp tacos. My husband raved about the shrimp tacos as "best ever". We'll be back before we leave!!!

You better be Good and hungry before you go the La Vagabunda. Food is served piping hot and in huge quantities. The presentation was quite stunning. I had the fish and chips after reading a previous review on TripAdvisor. I took half of it home. My companion had the Fettuccine with mushroom and loved it. The service is excellent and staff let you sit after your meal and watch the people go by on 5th avenue. It was very relaxing, very entertaining and a very impressive and tasty meal. Dinner for two with drinks was about $43.00 without tip.

We stopped here in Playa del Carmen just for a snack and a few beers. We ordered the guacamole entrée and it was very good! I'm rating this restaurant 5 stars because we did have excellent service and you could tell our waiter enjoyed his job very much. Price was decent too!

We loved this restaurant!!! All their food comes out displayed in some way like a bug. My partner ordered eggs benny and they even went so far as to splice up the capers to make them look like little flies. Food WAS amazing. We went off resort looking for some comfort food. We ordered fish and chips, which were probably the best I've ever had and I live on the West Coast. As well as the salmon eggs benny that had caper bugs all over it. As an appy we ordered quac which came shaped like a bug, tortilla chips making up the wings. Generous portions, excellent service, lots of fans to keep you cool, great 5th people watching. Can't say enough. Our favorite place in Playa del Carmen so far. Thank you!
