We stumbled across this lovely restaurant and we are so glad we did. The welcome was warm and the menu varied. I had moules to start & they were a lovely plump size and the sauce was amazing. Mr Kate had avocado and shrimp... again tasty. The chicken stuffed with prunes and walnuts was just fantastic and the pork chops in calvados was tender and the sauce was perfect. You can tell the owners are French by the amazing cuisine. Oh I forgot to mention the creme caramel and tiramisu dessert was again perfect in every way

The wonderful chefs (I assume the owners) came out to chat to everyone and offered us a drink of our choice. Perfect hosts!!

I definitely recommend the vagabond. We paid around €50 for a three course meal and a bottle of Rioja. Thanks for a lovely meal on our last night in Benidorm

Went a couple of nights ago. I had steak and my friend had chicken stuffed with prunes an walnuts plus I hate mushrooms however the mushroom soup was delicious as was was the steak and chicken. Fred the owner was hilarious and entertaining. Loved it and would definitely go back.

Fabulous food and Fred the owner is a true character and creates a great atmosphere. I had the curried prawns in a whisky cream sauce and they are a must ! Love this place we always visit when in Benidorm.

Our first visit this year with friends, I would say we are now fairly regular visitors to Fred's and always enjoy, we love the tasters and the menu is varied and different to any other in the area, it's small about 20 covers but that gives it a friendly intimate atmosphere, good friendly service , fab puddings . What's not to like , see you all again soon.

Food was unbelievable and wine was great value. Only issue was as such a small place smoke from kitchen made the visit very uncomfortable. This could be due to it being the opening night after a fortnights holiday. Can't wait till I return in October to give it another try. The 20 euro house menu was amazing value and adventurous with ingredients, I can't find the words to recommend this place enough
