I visited Fernandina Beach for a week recently and searched for what I thought was a good Sunday Brunch restaurant before we arrived. Cafe Karibo looked excellent on paper, but after eating here I was very unimpressed. It seems to want to be an upscale restaurant but I found the service and food to be mediocre. When we arrived (4... More

Not sure I'd return here. Had expensive fish special which was pretty overcooked. Also the sides were cooked with bacon which we don't eat and wasn't described by the server. They came up with a substitute but the experience wasn't great. This is probably a better lunch place. Hated to pay the substantial bill for the carelessly described and prepared... More

It's a bar, but it's more than bar food. Very good fresh seafood along with burgers and salads make for a good dining experience. The restaurant is housed in an old building and offers indoor and outdoor seating. Laid back friendly island hospitality is to be expected.

Worth the trip. All items purchased by my party were excellent. We've dined here before and we'll return for more.

Lunch on a lovely autumn day here was perfect. All of us had different salads, and everything was great. I especially liked the chicken salad. Servings were generous, plenty to share if you don't eat much at one time. We had ample to take home. Service was efficient and pleasant, and they made our carry out requests easy. The bar... More

Would loved to continue working through their menu but we have to go home. Really nice staff. Enjoyable patio area for outdoor dining. They welcome pets and... More

We came to Café Karibo this past week for a group dinner and were surprisingly impressed. The food here is outstanding! The staff was excellent and we appreciated the beer options as well as the environment.

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.
