Pablo's is in the heart of the business district of Fernandina Beach. Parking was an issue for us. I don't know if they take reservations, but that would have been a good idea if they do. It's a small place and we had to wait 1/2 hour for a table (arrived at 7:00 PM). The place is family friendly and... More

We happened in to Pablo's after a shop owner told us about it. We had originally planned to eat at the other Mexican restaurant , but were told that Pablo's had better food and margaritas! We sat in the nice courtyard area out back and ordered crab and spinach queso and seafood fajitas to split. Both were fantastic! Their salsa... More

Went with small group of friends and everything we ordered was awesome. Great guacamole, authentic atmosphere. Love that they have indoor and outdoor seating. Bathrooms were clean. My sister declares their tequila is THE BEST and she lives on Amelia! Will definitely visit again.

While visiting Fernandina, myself and three friends decided to eat at Pablo's since one of my friend had visited the place in a previous occasion. The locale was crowded and busy with customer. We were told that the wait was of 20 minutes. We were seated in five. The attendant was pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable of the entrees. We all... More

My husband and I wound up at Pablo's by default as the restaurant we planned to have supper at was incredibly crowded. Taking advantage of the street signs, which list restaurant locations, near the beach, in Fernandina Beach, we decided to try Pablo's. We were so happy with the service and our meals. The owner's daughter was our server. She... More

We liked our meal so much we went back on Thurs. When we entered the owners and Nana recognized us from our previous visit and greeted us like old friends. I had a... More

A well established family run restaurant which we visit about once every one to two months. The quality of food is very reliable and the choice covers a full range of Mexican dishes. We have always been made to feel welcome by Pablo and his staff.

I usually judge my Mexican restaurants by there chips and salsa. If they are good then usually everything else is fine with me. Our margarita's were flavorable and strong. The service was efficient and friendly and no one in our group had any complaints with there food.

Not too many places are open between 4 and 5 when we decided to eat an early dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to get to enjoy dinner at Pablo's and had a wonderful meal at a reasonable price for downtown Fernandina Beach. Good guacamole and salsa, and the fajitas were flavorful without being too spicy.

Thank Gloria S
