“Great value local cuisine”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We dined here three times during a short stay in Playa Del Carmen. The food and service were always of a high standard with excellent local dishes on the menu. The setting is clean and relaxing and the staff friendly at all times. We were entertained on our last night as the staff dealt patiently and good humouredly with a completely unreasonable (fellow) Aussie diner.

“Don't Miss It”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We've eaten here our first night in Playa the past 3 times we've gone. Augusto goes out of his way to make sure you feel welcomed. Everything is superb, but I always order Creme Poblano soup. I wish I could figure out how to duplicate it. The only reason I didn't give the restaurant an Excellent is because of the numerous times we had to tell different Mariachi bands coming in off the street that we didn't want them serenading us. One time is fine, but after awhile you wish you could just finish your dinner without intrusion. But that's anywhere on 5th Avenue. Not just Vagabunda.

“Wonderful breakfast”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

We came here for breakfast and ordered the 'American special'. Not only was the food delicious, the staff were super friendly and very happy to assist us in any way we needed. We also ordered the Oreo frappicino. WOW! Loved the place, and was a very relaxing morning with good chill out music playing. Highly recommended.

Candida and his son Candida were brilliant waiters and we had a fantastic evening. Well worth a visit here. We sat there for hours enjoying the service and people watching. Highly recommended
