Description: Traditional Cooking since 1992. The most popular Steakhouse in Alvor! Located on the main pedestrian street of Alvor, the main dining room is a lovely place to enjoy a great meal, and in winter the fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere. During the summer the patio is ideal for outdoor dining. Surrounded by lemon, orange and olive trees, it is a cool oasis in the hot Algarve nights. Vagabondo's menu is a mix of traditional dishes from portuguese and international cuisine. We have a great variety of grilled meat dishes, several fish and seafood dishes. There is also a children's menu available.

“Best in Alvor?”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

After 7 nights in Alvor and 7 different restaurants we agreed this was probably our favourite. Having been lucky enough to get a table outside the front of the restaurant we were able to fully enjoy the warm evening people watching on Alvor's main bar/restaurant street.
The food was excellent and well presented. Service was good. Nothing at all to fault really. Will definitely be on our must visit list should we return to Alvor

“Great food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

All four of us really enjoyed our meals, the Portuguese steak was absolutely delicious. Service was friendly and helpful, willing to change the mash with the steaks to chips. Our friends had eaten at this restaurant before and said that they have always enjoyed a good meal in a lovely atmosphere. Can understand why the restaurant has such good reviews.

“Best restaurant in Alvor....”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We stumbled upon this place by accident as there were so many places to eat in Alvor in the street filled with restaurants, bar and shops. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We had one of the specials - BBQ Fish Platter - the portion was huge! Absolutely delicious!

“Excellent find”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant during our break over the Christmas and. New Year period. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. The atmosphere was warm and cosy. The menu was extensive although as we tend to do in Alvor we stuck with the fish which was indeed a good choice. We will certainly return to this restaurant and would recommend it.
