The atmosphere in Yabos is like no other in Fort Myers or Cape Coral that I have come across. The walls are painted in warm, dark hues and scattered with various musician paintings. There is a large stage area, which unfortunately we were not able to stay and enjoy but I have no doubt it gets rocking. The atmosphere and... More

We tried Yabo's with friends. Sat at high tops. Ordered variations of the standard American Burger, fries, salad, wine. Nothing spectacular, but not bad either. The patio looked inviting. The AC chilled our shoulders. The music rocked a little. The best part of the early evening was being with our friends.

This is a solid pick for those who can't stomach one more grouper sandwich and don't want to see a picture of dolphins in the wall. The food is solid. Go simple. Good flatbreads, gnocchi in an asiago cream sauce are stellar. Drinks are fine, Get the simple pasta dishes like lasagna, linguini in clam sauce, etc... My wife and... More

We stopped there for happy hour. My husband had called before hand and they said that they had a lot of beers on tap. When we got there, there were only a handful and none were very interesting. But my husband ordered a beer that was not particularly good. There was no drink menu so I ordered a pinot grigrio.... More

Yabo is like no other place! This is not your mama's hard rock cafe restaurant. This place is trendy, compelling and comfortable! The atmosphere is has a soulful yet classy and hip vibe. The food is exciting and fun! And the service is top notch! This restaurant is definitely a gem in a sea of pretenders. An original to say... More

Friends came in and this is there favorite place. Friday night, the place is packed, the drinks are not inexpensive, the scene is noisy. This must be great for young people but at 60, not the place for me.

I am in love with this restaurant! It has one of the coolest themes ever. When inside you are taken to a rock and roll fantasy. The staff is very pleasant and we were greeted with a smile. Not to mention our service was excellent. When we went they had live music that was just right. Not so load we... More
