This is our second time to Amelia Island and our third trip to Cafe Karibo. The food has been consistently good and prices are reasonable. On our last trip, the restaurant was quite busy, but our service was good. I had a full size salad with grilled chicken. Yummy! Salad was generous and included black beans and pico de gallo....

We had a large party there and ordered in advance so we had a large sampling of the menu. I have to say everything I had was very good. The Thai Spring Rolls were really good. The steak frittes were also tender and well seasoned. I would definitely recommend if you are visiting Amelia Island.

We visited here on vacation. The outside patio is wonderful. Service was good . Cashew crusted pork was great. Also had a shrimp on a salad that was good.

We live in Nassau Co and completely love Cafe Karibo. It is a nice local restaurant on one side and great brewpub on the other. The food is absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful. The art that decorates the place is humorously representative of Amelia Island. For a great meal and great time, visit Cafe Karibo!

Best dinner on the island the outside dining was very enjoyable but once it got chilly they let us inside where the atmosphere is so fun. My daughter and I both had delicious and unique dinner options with good size portions. Don't miss the Strawberry Cake or the crab dip.

I am sad to say we were very disappointed in our visit. We were excited to try their beers on tap since they are a microbrewery, but they only had one and it was a summer wheat. After waiting 45 min for a table we finally got seated, ordered our food immediately and it took over an hour! No explanation... More
