The food was mediocre. The service was poor. After waiting 35 minutes, we where sat and not greeted to another 20. Wait for drinks, wait for chips and then wait some more our food. Our drinks where empty as well as our chips. It was a poor experience !!

We have eaten at Pablos before and enjoyed it very much, so we went back with our guests for lunch. Service was very slow and we had to ask more than once for several items. At one point our server left our queso dip without asking if we needed more chips (we did) so we ended up eating it with our forks. Food was either over heated (too long in the microwave?) or lukewarm. The very annoying thing about this trip is we ended up paying an automatic 18% gratuity for less than stellar service. Typical island we don't really care about the tourists, except we aren't tourists.

The salsa was great, but the chips weren't served warm, and didn't taste fresh. Dinner was good, but not great. The strawberry margarita was excellent!! Our first exposure was the hostess and she wasn't too welcoming. Won't return!

This is a casual Mexican restaurant. The Gold Margarita was a plentiful serving and very tasty. The salsa is fresh (a bit salty) and the service is efficient. This restaurant gets food out of the kitchen fast. I had the Chile Verde my wife had the Pollo Maya which is chicken breast topped with Chorizo, mushrooms, chesse, and salsa verde. It is served with white rice and black beans. This was the better of the two dishes. As for the dining atmosphere, it is average. The tables are close together, so it makes for a communal dining experience. Probably more family oriented. My wife and I were wedged between a table of 6 with 3 very active children and a couple on the other side of us trying to have a quiet convesation. Overall, if you want to have a good mexican meal, I would recommend this restaurant. It is also reasonably priced.

Visited Pablo's the past Friday and as usual my wife and I were treated like family. It's nice to see, as a local, a consistent staff as they have here. To me that says a lot about the owners and management. They obviously created a positive atmosphere for the staff and that flows right to the guest.The margaritas and chicken ymca fantastic! We will be back soon!
