  • A little slice of the Caribbean can be found just over the Vilano Bridge at Beaches at Vilano. This laid-back bar and restaurant offers bar snacks and dinner with Caribbean inspired flavors and sides. Add in their rum drinks and a sunset over the Tolomoto River and it feels as if a part of the Caribbean has appeared in St. Augustine.

    Guests may sit inside their bar and restaurant to take a break from the sun or to watch a favorite team on their multiple screens; or meet a group of friends on deck for lunch, drinks, or dinner and enjoy the view; or choose one of the tables on the beach and sit where the water laps the sand as the sun sets over the water.

    The appetizer menu at Beaches offers everything from nachos to chicken wings to their home-made fish dip. Staying for dinner? Choices include Caribbean jerk chicken, flat iron steak, and fresh catch of the day. Their sides range from Caribbean beans and rice to Beaches home-made "tater tots."

    Beaches has free parking and special places for any special conveyance —  from bikes to boats. There are designated spots for motorcycles and a dock for boats of nearly any size.

    Had the Caribbean jerk chicken. The rice, plantains, and broccoli were cold. Nice place, but wish we would have had a better dinning experience.

    We chose this restaurant specifically for crab legs, which were delicious. Beer could have been slightly colder. Portions were generous and the prices reasonable. Our server was polite, but could have been more attentive. There was a good live band playing on the deck. The restaurant is located right on the Matanzas River and offers a beautiful view. You can eat as close to the water as you like; next to the window, on the deck, even directly on the sand. If you want to experience the water while you eat, this is a solid option.

    I loved it! Perfect place to relax and take in the views, The food was good and lots of it, I cant wait to go back!

    Nice reaturant very close to our hotel, it was a bit pricey and the shrimp and pasta dishes were really good!

    Locals saying that the new owner doesn't want the bar patron but restaurant business primarily. Restaurant owners that come into Vilano and think they can make it without the locals are in for a real surprise. Drinks small, food below average for the area.

    This is the neatest place! I love the wait staff (ask for Robert if he's there!) and the food is wonderful. It's hard to say what's BEST about this place, but the atmosphere is one of the top five things about Beaches! It's picturesque and the breeze off the water is amazing! Even when it's hot, it doesn't seem too warm to sit outside in the shade of the umbrellas and enjoy the beach, watch the boats, and look for the pirate ship to pass. It's one of my favorite places ever ever ever!

    Took a break from fishing too get some lunch and spotted Beaches from the water. Pulling up to the dock was welcomed with a smile and asked if I needed fuel or lunch or both(they have 100% gas and diesel). I said I was looking for some lunch and they helped me tie to the dock! The service and food were great and reasonably priced.Large inside and great deck outside. If I lived down here they would soon know me by name! Love this place!
