lovely atmosphere, like sitting in a homely garden. We had a pina colada to start, delicious!! The food was lovely, though there could have been more vegetarian options. I would definitely go back.

I have been to Vagabondo a couple of years ago and remember that it was a really good restaurant. The setting is lovely, we were seated out the back in the open garden area. Service was great and we didn't have to reserve a table....More

The place was busy and the only tables were inside. This was fine as the front of the restaurant is open to the street and you feel almost like you are outside. The service was attentive and very friendly. I had scallops to start, followed...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.
