Great for a casual lunch

Excellent service on an attractive patio. Dishes were fresh and creative. I especially enjoyed the Mediterranean couscous salad with grilled shrimp. The one person having a burger wasn't as happy as those of us having salad and sandwiches. Superb cocktails especially the dark and stormy.

Karibo is actually three places: On the corner of Ash St. is the Pub, in the center a rustic-style restaurant and to the south is an open air, tree-covered dining patio, a favorite of locals. The kitchen provides good, simple meals at reasonable price. Karibo brews its own beer: a stout, a lager and a blend of the two that... More

I always get the Big Bella sandwich on Ciabatta bread. Great sandwich. You can eat outside. Prices are reasonable and you get great value for your money.

Lentil salad (with walnuts, feta, chick peas), Thai spring rolls, black bean soup, whole red snapper, couscous salad, and micro beer made for a unique dining experience on Amelia Island. It was a pleasant surprise to see this varied menu after having so much fresh shrimp and the like. The bartender was extremely helpful with recommendations for portion sizes and... More

Karibo was a delightful find! The evening specials we ordered - whole red snapper and a chicken and cartelized onion flatbread (pictures posted) were outstanding. The place was very crowded, and very loud, on a Tuesday night. The server was efficient and friendly with a warm smile. The prices were reasonable and there was a small list of nice wines... More

Reasonably priced. Everything was delicious. Had lunch with sister and sister in law. They had the chunky shrimp salad and they were very happy with this. Chunky is for a reason. They said it was fresh tasting, huge chunks, very little binder. The salad it came with had strawberries and feta cheese and a variety of fresh greens. I ordered... More

We vacation at Amelia Island and make sure to eat here every trip! The food is fantastic, service is excellent, and the atmosphere is really nice, especially when the temperature is right for eating outside. Highly recommend Karibo!
