Drove from albufeira to go back to this restaurant (45 mins). Amazing food, brilliantly cooked with brilliant staff! FYI Ask to sit on the terrace! Had Chicken satay, buffalo wings, fried king prawns and seabass supreme! Best gratinated potatoes ever!!! Wish I'd had room for dessert!

Eaten here once and would definitely go back again. The location is fantastic. I had burger and chips and it was very nice, would have preferred a home made burger for the price paid. Wife had tuna salad which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Offered us the chance to sit in the garden and after a really hot day this seemed a great idea. The friendly waitress offered us blankets for our legs!! British spirit prevailed!! I had the Portuguese sausage starter - but no dates so bread rolls appeared instead which was a thoughtful touch. Just fancied the burger which was beautifully cooked... More

The night we went they were severely under staffed unfortunately we were not informed of this until 2 hours in. They should have been informing people as they were seated that there would be a delay or even at the door. As it was about an 2.5 hour delay! We were there for 3 hours and we left straight after...

Simply one of the best restaurants I have ever visited. We were a group of about 12 people and everyone spoke very highly of this restaurant. This should be on everyone's list!

This place is amazing. You get the feel of an upper class restaurant. The food is 1st class. I had an amazing rib-eye steak, cooked exactly how I asked for. Prices are about average. Friendly staff who speak very good English. I recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a fantastic evening meal.

Myself and my partner visited this restaurant over 7 years ago while on holidays in alvor. At the time we visited the restaurant twice as it was so good... this year we visited portugal again and we just had to visit vagabondo. We certainly weren't disappointed. We have 2 starters one Portuguese sausage and one mushrooms with garlic and croutons...... 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.
