I read the reviews on here and knew we'd have a great meal which we did! It wasn't just a great meal but also a warm friendly and comfortable experience and we felt at home immediately. Lovely customers and we had a chat with our neighbours in between courses. Eoin was amazing as was the chef/owner. We had a beautifully... More

Fabulous service and excellent food. Couldn't have been better. Good wine list and reasonably priced. The location was quiet and the hosts couldn't have made us any more welcome.

Food fabulous and the owner, his wife and the maitre'd Owen were welcoming, good fun and made the night. Can't recommend enough - also great location in the heart of the old town.

Consistently great food prepared & served by the most professional yet friendly team ever!! Fred in his role of Chef & Host is undoubtedly the star of the Vagabond but both Marie & Owen contribute to making this restaurant the "must do" venue in Benidorm. If you want great food in a great atmosphere at a fantastic value price, look... More

We have reviewed 'Le Vagabond' several times before and it never fails to disappoint. As soon as we arrived, we had a lovely warm welcome from Eion (front of house), Marie and Fred. It was like we had never been away. Our favourite bottle of wine was ready and waiting for us at our table. Mussels had to be our... More

I was so pleased I had emailed a month earlier to book for our meal, as this was the last night of service before Fred has a well deserved holiday. As a coeliac and unable to eat gluten I checked that there would be something on the menu that would be suitable. I had lots of choice and the food... More

I have reviewed this restaurant many times and I can honestly say it's the best in Benidorm. From the warm welcome from front of house Owen to the exquisite food served up by Fred and Marie it just can't be beaten. When you visit more than once you suddenly realise that the big welcome is genuine and become part of... More

Easily found in Benidorm's Old Town we were warmly welcomed by Owen who explained the food on offer! We even got to sample the mushroom soup before choosing our starter! This intimate restaurant had a great atmosphere and the food from start to finish was first rate. You need to reserve a table in advance but you won't be disappointed!

Hadn't managed to get here for a couple of years or more as we rarely venture into Beni now when we're holidaying on Co Blanca, but so glad we made the effort. Excellent front of house advice and service from the amiable Owen and tremendously tasty food from Fred & Marie in the kitchen. I love how Fred makes a... More
