Had lunch here a few days ago. The place was recommended by friends. Found our waitress to be less than cheerful or friendly. The Nacho's Carne were very good. The Enchilada's Verde were mediocre. Asked not to have rice, but when it was delivered there it was.

My wife and I have just eaten at Pablo's and we are very disappointed with our experience. The food was average to say the least and not really authentic as the venue appears to be a sports bar serving Mexican food. When the food arrived one of the orders was wrong and we ended up eating at different times. Guacamole... More

Looking for a neat place to eat in Fernandina Beach while on our family reunion trip. We chose Pablo's based on the reviews and had a wonderful evening. The restaurant is cozy and quaint. The margaritas were outstanding and food was authentic Mexican. Everyone in our group from the kids to the grandparents thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Great menu and... More

Wow! We had one of our best meals in town here. It was crowded and raining so we sat at the bar. The meals were delicious and fresh.

While on vacation my family and I wanted a change from seafood and based on previous reviews we thought why not give Pablo's a try...and we were not disappointed! There was a slight wait for the inside, so we opted to sit outside in the back garden and it was perfect! Service was good and our server suggested the nightly... More

This did not sound so great on the menu but we ordered it because we wanted something light. It is sauteed little strips of chicken over nice fresh greens, avocado, tomatoes and green peppers. What brings it to a great level is the dressing. Both my husband and I loved this salad. Now for the house margaritas: they are very... More

Just stumbled upon this place while walking down the street and found it to be awesome. The frozen margaritas are great. I had the chicken enchilada which was also awesome.
