We went to La Vagabunda a few times when we were in Playa, it was kind of our go too place! Great service, and great food too. We really liked this spot, and would totally go again and again next time we are in Playa!

We had breakfast here almost every day. Service is good and the food is very good. Some tables are outside, right on Avenida Quinta so it's fun for people watching.

We love Playa. We love walking 5th Ave. every night and deciding which restaurant to eat at. But no matter how many places we try we ALWAYS come back to La Vagabunda! We ate there 3 nights during our recent 8 night stay. They have delicious apps(we loved the fried calamari, and of course the chips and salsa). The meals were nicely portioned, the service is wonderful, and the overall feel of the restaurant is friendly-with a true mexican vibe. We have a vegetarian in our family, and they had a wonderful and quite large vegetarian burrito. It was a fun place the entire family enjoyed. We are a family of four and always had two appetizers and full dinners, and we never paid more than 70 bucks! Worth a try for sure!!!

We were looking for a real Mexican restaurant in Playa Del Carmen and this restaurant hit the spot. Guacamole was very very good. And happy hours was very fun! The Piña Colada was by far the best I have drank in southern countries and I go to a lot of them. Very impressed by the staff, we had great service. I will defenitly go back there when I go back to playa del carmen!

Great food, staff, atmosphere. Real Mexican place. Cute, small, interesting. Nice prices for great food.
They don't pursue you to give tips or service % like other restaurants, since it's obvious that guests will leave tip.
It was irritating in other restaurants on Playa - on the end when we ask for a bill, they would pursue you for a tip or 10-15% service tip.
