Our waiter Victor was very friendly and prompt. The food quality here is the best! And the drink menu is very good too! We love coming to Vagabunda on 5th and the other one on 38th as well! We will be back again and again,...sometimes twice a day because the prices and service are so good. Out favorite place to eat when we are in Playa Del Carmen.More

This restaurant exceeded my expectations! They have something for everybody, from typical Mexican dishes to dishes from back home, and the food is delicious! Service is quick, they have fans for when the heat gets to be too much, and my server for 2 days...in a row, Rodrigo, has been so friendly and welcoming! Definitely recommend this to solo travelers, families, and everything in between! I'll surely be back next time I'm in Playa!More

We spend 10 weeks a year in Puerto Aventuras. We come to Playa 3-5 times a week and La Vagabunda is one of only two restaurants we visit. Rodrigo is always quick to take care of us and having tried most of the menu now,...we’ve never had a meal that wasn’t fantastic!!!!More

Yes, when we were there there were several families. The staff are really accommodating. Don’t know if there’s a kids menu but there is a great selection.
