This is an excellent lunch place, especially Sunday brunch. Cafe Karibo even has its' own draft beer, which is great. The salads and sandwiches are really good, but do indulge in the fries, too.

The food here is not expensive but you will feel like you ate a gourmet meal. Not because it is super fancy, but the food is just that good. You can sit outside in what looks like a French courtyard, or inside dining, or even at the bar. This place makes its own beer and even has live entertainment most... More

We so enjoyed having Sunday brunch on their delightful patio. We all ordered Bloody Mary's which were very original, with our brunch. This was the culmination of our stay at Fernandina Beach, and turned out to be the best choice for us. The food was excellent and the Karibou added it's personal touch to each dish. We would recommend this... More

Drinks of delicious Maybach on the balcony great wait service by Mia and Joy only added to what was a beautiful evening of sharing appetizers - particularly the bacon wrapped scallop over cracked wheat. Only sorry we enjoyed this shareable app that we ordered a second round and another order of scallops. Great and eclectic vibe - very friendly atmosphere,... More

This restaurant always has the food on point. The ambience sitting outside on the patio or inside is wonderful. One of my favorites on the island.

Cafe Karibo is a restaurant have been to many times over years of visits to Fernandina Beach. The atmosphere inside is cozy with a tavern kind of feel on one side and fairly contemporary local pub on the other side. In addition there's a nice outdoor garden area under some trees - all in the middle of Old Fernandina. The... More

Wilted greens and one or two strawberries and nuts comprised my salad. Price was right, but it was unimpressive. Hubby's tuna melt was "okay"

If you are looking for a place to eat with a menu option for everyone... This is it. I have to brag on the Sunday morning brunch though! Both the shrimp and grits (a must), and the biscuits and gravy, will have you coming back every Sunday. Made from scratch, mouth watering, this is the place to go! Enjoy some... More

I highly recommend eating in the courtyard. It is a soothing environment. We brought our dog and she was totally relaxed there. The food is reasonably priced and very good quality. The sandwiches are big enough for a dinner and the sweet potato fries are very tasty and NOT greasy. The chili is like a soup and is not so... More

We ended up here because our first choice for dinner closed at 8pm. Cafe Karibo was two doors down the street and offered a pleasant outdoor dining area - nice breezes, soft lighting and tree canopy overhead. Service was fine; attentive, accurate, and not intrusive. We had house made red sangria - OK, not great. Wife had a grilled turkey... More
