Popular Mexican Restaurant with good choice of food

A very popular Mexican Restaurant on the main stree in Fernandina Beach. An extensive tex-mex style menu with all of your favourite food and drinks. The margheritas hit the spot.

They have an outdoor eating area with a beautiful breeze - eat there if it's not too hot out. Food is delicious and the service is good.

We visit Pablo's every time we come to town. The atmosphere is festive and the attitude of the wait staff is always great. Owners Pablo and Fernando have a lot to do with that as they always make you feel like family. Everything from the complimentary salsa to the entrees are made with fresh ingredients. My personal favorite is the... More

Server didn't come over until we dlagged down the bartender to send someone to our table. Server indicated there was a mixup and then took our drinks order. It took more than 10 minutesw and then had to ask again and drinks... More

Great margaritas, and if you like it hot, as for some of the homemade habanero salsa. Some reviewers wrote about fish tacos being easy to make; never order fish tacos any place other than a seafood restaurant. This is a mexican restaurant.

We live in town and friends came for a visit and we went to this restaurant. Wow were we disappointed. The service was so bad it was laughable. The food was disappointing for most of the table. Chicago burritos were a very small portion and the authentic Mexican specialty of the house is to be avoided. It was sent back... More

My husband and I visited for lunch. We decided to sit inside instead of the patio because there were people smoking outside. On the upside the margaritas were excellent. We split a meal and it was plenty of food to share. The problem was the hostess who stared at us through our entire meal. I looked up from my meal... More

Stopped in at Pablo's while walking around Centre Street. The staff immediately struck us as extremely friendly and accommodating. Karen was amazing! We sat on the patio, which was pretty big and really nice. The only bad thing was that the music playing was extremely loud and we had to speak very loudly to hear each other. The drinks were...
