Good service and tasty food for the price.

The restaurant is very small so we felt a little cramped sitting next to a support pillar and the dessert table. Food and service were good. We shared the calamari appetizer. The breading was a bit heavy but it was well cooked. Loved the dipping sauces! We were trying to go to the microbrew... read more

We we seated very quickly. My son ordered what he said was an average hamburger, nothing special. My husband had the salmon platter, which he stated was very good and filling. I had the baja salad and I am sorry to say it was terrible. It consisted on a large bed of what looked like butter lettuce with a pile... More

Outdoor patio is Karibo's main feature for casual dining. But it also has a Brew Pub interior, and is a great place to have a party, either in the Pub or in a private patio that seats 24 minimum. Mostly simple fare, but I had an Ahi Tuna that was excellent. They brew their own suds -- a Pilsner, a... More

Very disappointing. We've gone here off and on for a few years and the quality has definitely gone down. Our last visit will probably be just that...our last visit. It's August in Florida and the dining room is not air conditioned? The place was empty at 7pm. The server told us about the specials, to the best of her ability.... More

We recently tried Cafe Karibo for the first time for a change of pace. Now I wonder what took us so long! From the moment we walked up until the moment we left, the experience was great all around. If you are looking for an A+ caesar salad on Amelia Island, Karibo is THE place. Hands down the best caesar... More

Went here for lunch on a recent visit to Fernandina. Wait staff efficient & friendly. My husband had the Baja chicken wrap & I had the burger which was huge & delicious! Side of sweet potato fries for me and potato salad for him. Both meals were well prepared. Outdoor seating had a beautiful breeze for the entire meal.

We dined on the shaded patio. Even in 90 degree weather, it was comfortable. The service was good and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the Big Bella sandwich.

Our family of four went here on a Tuesday night at 7 pm and were seated immediately. It then took a good five minutes before we saw our serve who seemed disinterested from the start. Our drink orders were then taken and we placed our dinner orders. My wife and I elected to start with the caprese salad. After a... More

With all the great places nearby - this place is a MUST MISS. The only thing more disappointing than the food was the attitude of the hostess.

We sat inside since it was a bit rainy. The dining area is small but very cute and cozy. The sandwiches are huge and the veggie burger was excellent! You will leave full. The salads look really good too. Good value for lunch and they have craft beer to try out.
