Dined here while in the area. Food was good but the service was disappointing. Dinner for 7 was nearly $200 so you expect Good service. Disappointed that their on-line menu showed more items that what was on their actual menu. Their actual menu is not kid friendly. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. We had a large party and...

Less than half a block off of the main drag in the historic portion of Fernandina Beach is Pablo's. Parking is located not far from the restaurant. Clean, temperature appropriate, music volume good for carrying on conversation. Service was a little slow and there weren't many patrons at that time. Salsa was good but nothing impressive, served in small containers... More

We ordered chicken fajitas. They were tasty - came with rice & black beans. Beans were exceptionally good. Service was good but we did have to wait a bit to get our check as the restaurant was getting busy by the time we were leaving. Prices were fair

We heard that Pablo's had the best margarita on the island - it wasn't bad but I've had better. The food was generally flavorless, the server lacked personality, & it was pretty dang pricey! Wishing we would've gone to Pepper's instead.

Margaritas are okay, food overpriced but not bad. Service was good, limes on the water were a nice touch. Chips were cold, queso was good, fish tacos were very small for $17 a plate.

I had dinner here with a group of 10 this last weekend and it was delicious. We started off by sharing a few pitchers of margaritas, which were a little too sweet after a few glasses. We ordered queso and guac for the table, which did not disappoint. I really enjoyed the queso as it was white queso, instead of... More

After a long wait on a Thursday night we had a wonderful meal. Margaritas and brews to accompany it. Fajitas and guacamole were great. Fresh and delicious!

I liked this restaurant very much! Very clean, staff was attentive, and the food was excellent. There was also a good selection of food to order. We weren't rushed to order or finish our meals. Will definitely be back again!

First, let me say the good. The staff was nice and we were seated quickly. And that's all I've got for good. Now the ugly...it took about 30 min to get the queso to go with our chips. The salsa was not very good either. After an hour of waiting for our entrees to arrive, our one-year old lost his... More

Love this place for all things Mexican. Always fresh and delicious. Margaritas are potent and good. Casual, family run place with lovely outside seating in the garden in the back.
