Food good, too noisy – We've eaten at Vagabond a couple of times, as it is in our neighborhood. We find the food to be pretty good, as it was well prepared and authentic, just had some ingrediant combinations that we thought were a little odd. The bar area is nice, and the cocktails were delicious, including some more exotic ones that they suggested. We did find the table quarters a little cramped and the overall noise level daunting when the restaurant was in full swing, as there's nothing to baffle the sound. This restaurant would be good for someone in the neighborhood or in surrounding neighborhoods who wants to try something a little different. One other note -- an acquaintance of mine mentioned that she dropped by one day shortly after they opened one day for dinner (and there wasn't anyone dining at the time), and with a bit of attitude turned her away because they said they don't take walk-in diners. Seems really cheeky to me considering they are a small neighborhood restaurant.
Food From Around the World! – Vagabond is located off of 30th ave. in SouthPark. It is an excellent eatery with a local owner that provides food from all around the world. The food and atmosphere have a kind of rustic feel and you could feel as if you aren't dining in San Diego at all when eating there.
South Park eatery embodies the flavors and hospitality of the owners' travels with an eclectic menu and friendly, warm ambiance. – Warm, dark adobe walls with carved arches and ornate columns welcome diners to the candle-lit dining room with an imported Spanish tile floor. Iron wall sconces and unique wooden candelabras remind you of old Europe, while the barrels and rafia sacks of coffee and potatoes visible from the kitchen add a touch of the islands. The menu incorporates local favorites from around the globe, served as if you were eating at someone's dinner table in Thailand, Spain or Morocco. Mussels steamed in white wine and garlic, then sauteed with herbs and creme fraiche are rich and flavorful. Soaking up any leftover sauce in the bottom of the deep ramekin on the crusty house bread is almost better than the shellfish itself. Other standouts include a thinly sliced filet with spicy herbed butter, classic French frites with light dusting of sea salt and traditional Spanish Paella.
