Lentil salad (with walnuts, feta, chick peas), Thai spring rolls, black bean soup, whole red snapper, couscous salad, and micro beer made for a unique dining experience on Amelia Island. It was a pleasant surprise to see this varied menu after having so much fresh shrimp and the like. The bartender was extremely helpful with recommendations for portion sizes and... More

Karibo was a delightful find! The evening specials we ordered - whole red snapper and a chicken and cartelized onion flatbread (pictures posted) were outstanding. The place was very crowded, and very loud, on a Tuesday night. The server was efficient and friendly with a warm smile. The prices were reasonable and there was a small list of nice wines... More

Reasonably priced. Everything was delicious. Had lunch with sister and sister in law. They had the chunky shrimp salad and they were very happy with this. Chunky is for a reason. They said it was fresh tasting, huge chunks, very little binder. The salad it came with had strawberries and feta cheese and a variety of fresh greens. I ordered... More

We vacation at Amelia Island and make sure to eat here every trip! The food is fantastic, service is excellent, and the atmosphere is really nice, especially when the temperature is right for eating outside. Highly recommend Karibo!

This little restaurant handles a crowd efficiently, and in addition to having some nice lunch choices, it also has a location which is handy to the boutiques and gift shops of downtown Fernandina Beach.

Stopped in yesterday for birthday lunch with sisters-in-law based on Trip Advisor recommendations. While we shopped in the morning and asked locals, this Cafe was consistently named first by them when asked for a nice relaxing place with a menu that goes beyond traditional burgers and sandwiches. We weren't disappointed. Due to rainy weather, we sat inside on the unique... More

Cafe Karibo has raised its game and our party of three were the winners during January's Amelia Island restaurant week. Dinner options were at $29 and $19; we chose the former. For starters, we began with (1) the Thai Spring Rolls which are crispy fried spicy pork and cabbage rolls with a soy dipping sauce; (2) Tuna Sashimi or sesame-crusted... More

We love Karibo for many reasons but mostly because the selection of dishes is unique and delicious. They do have the usual dishes but so many that are unique to them. Don't miss this restaurant for both lunch and dinners. You can't just go once!

Visited for the first time on Sat. afternoon, there were 4 of us. I ordered the curry chicken salad in a spinach wrap. It was delicious. The turkey chili was very good too, except the melted cheese they put in it made it very awkward to eat. Had I known about the cheese I would have said, "no cheese please".... More
