Fantastic Food and Service - Very Fun Place!

Met a group for happy hour and had the best time. Loved our waiter, Jerry, he provided such wonderful service and was fantastic. They have some wonderful happy hour specials for drinks and a special food menu. We tried the truffle fries - SO yummy, calamari, plus two different flat breads - one was... read more

Went with a group and was really pleased with the food. It is in a strop mall so was a little apprehensive when I walked in - but really liked it. Lots of music memorabilia on the walls etc gives it an interesting look. Food was great - we shared a few starters, and I had 'Bec's Bags' - essentially... More

Grilled rack of lamb was wonderfully prepared. Service was very attentive. Everyone at table was very pleased with their entree.

Visited Yabo. Atmosphere was all rock history. A bit dated and too rocker. Very dark instead. The food was very good, but a bit pricey. Drinks were average and nothing special. I may go back and try one more time, but not worth a special trip.

Met a bunch of friends for outdoor cocktails / appetizers in the middle of the week. This restaurant has both inside and outside seating, we chose the latter as it was an absolutely glorious Florida afternoon. Server was super friendly, we enjoyed an eclectic mix of appetizers and adult beverages. Worth a visit.

This place was recommended to us by a friend. My family came on a Thursday evening. We did not have a reservation, but I think it is recommended. Our server was good but not the most attentive. This was not my family's kind of place so they struggled to order drinks and food. It was difficult for them to hear... More

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
