Had a lovely meal here on a trip to Alvor. Could get over the friendly nature of all the staff towards us and our child. It makes all the difference when having a peaceful meal. Would definitely recommend the steak and will be coming back...More

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.
