“Excellent Food, Atmosphere, Value, and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We have been visiting Playa del Carmen since 2007 and La Vagabunda has been our favorite restaurant wherein to have a good meal of great value. It is conveniently located on 5th Avenue; you enjoy your meal while you watch people. I look forward to our next visit in February 2015. Although we will be staying in Cozumel then, we will take the ferry to Playa del Carmen for a visit and we will stop at La Vagabunda for a great meal.

Awesome food, so friendly and great price. This should be your first stop in Playa, no other restaurant will match the quality of authentic Mexican and you'll be coming back!

“Great place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

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!

“Good food at a reasonable price.”

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.

“simply yummy!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

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!!!
