Both the restaurant and it's staff are very relaxed and easy-going. Go early in the afternoon, lay down in a sun lounger, order some "goodies" and just wait for the sunset...

Good spot to hang out after surfing. Delicious food for a fair price. Nice view of the beach and the other surfers.

Great location looking out onto the sand dunes with resting camels and horses. A nice relaxed atmosphere. We chose this on the recommendation of the owner of our riad and it was a very pleasant walk along the beach to get here. As others have commented, although the staff were pleasant the service is slow and it was some time... More

it was great to be part of a group dinner party joining people from every corner of the world. Excelent "tapas" and drinks service in the garden, followed by a buffet dinner with local musicians. Everything was perfect and planned to the last detail. What a memorable evening!

The Ocean Vagabond is a very nice place. Its location is excellent. Sadly the service is a bit slow and the menus are a bit pricey

Great atmosphere, good music and comfortable seats in the sun. Food is western and they actually have beers on draft. You hardly smell the camels waiting for tourists just beside the terrace

What a find this was! After a long walk up the beach we found this place and were pleased to receive a warm welcome, a table in the sun with a view of the beach, horses and camels on the sand dunes and a cold beer! We both had the vagabond burger and they were sublime...think Macdonald's big Mac but... More

Whilst we enjoyed good food here the service was chaotic to say the least. We had to ask for the menus and for our order to be taken, and the staff seemed lost and confused at times. The service was slow of a poor standard. Furthermore I paid for our bill on card. The first transaction was declined however the... More
