Had calamari for starter, overdone frozen strips, horrible BBQ fish plate for main course, more overdone calamari, salmon kebab, two prawns, fish and baked potato. Felt like it was just thrown on a plate, sorry would never go back again

There would be no real seating out the front, the "outside" is up on the roof so I wouldn't have thought so.

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.
