Description: Yabba Island Grill is the perfect spot in town for the grandchildren, grandparents and the kid in all of us! Yabba offers a casual fun island atmosphere, where you don't have to dress up, and if you do, you'll still feel at home. At Yabba's everything's cool! Every Friday and Saturday night, we go late night with an Island party for the younger "natives". The rest of the week is as calm as an island breeze…

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

My husband and i had the privilege to dine at Yabba during a recent trip to Florida. We had a babysitter for the evening and with another on the way were very excited for a nice evening out. That is just what we got at Yabba. The atmosphere, staff and food were fantastic! The service was friendly, helpful and timely. We wanted to enjoy our time out so we asked that they space out the courses, which they did kindly. The food was creative and fresh and by the end of the evening we were visited by the manager on duty who offered us a complimentary dessert to our surprise. The location of the restaurant also allowed for a nice stroll through Naples after dinner. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Florida.

“They don't serve bread with lunch.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I like the Yabba salad, but ever other place would offer bread with salad or soup. We had to beg for crackers.

“Relaxed atmosphere, fun food, now open for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

I enjoyed Yabba with a group of friends at lunch recently. All of us enjoyed our food, a tableside visit from the chef, and the funky, downtown Naples atmosphere. As usual, I searched for a vegan option and was happy to see a couple of things that would work for me. I asked for the cheese to be omitted from my salad and didn't miss it at all. Greens, watermelon, nuts, nice dressing. Yum. I wish we had been served some bread, however, and so did others at my table. Was this an oversight or policy? Not a big deal, but a tiny flaw. All of us were happy to be able to enjoy a favorite evening spot at lunchtime.

“A buzzing place and a lovely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We had a great, and vey filling meal, at yabba's on our second night in Naples. We were looking for something a bit less formal with a Mexican feel and this place was great. We booked using open table which is great when visiting another country. Chicken wings were a huge hit as was the burger. Nachos were tasty but could have done with a little less cheese, but this was a personal preference. Excellent service and very well priced in a prime location. We would happily return.
