We went here twice recently, June 24th (Tuesdays are all you can eat ribs) and June 26th (Thursdays are italian night). Both nights dinner was absolutely delicious! You have to go!!! I didn't make it through my first set of ribs, but my husband did, plus some! He said rounds 2 and 3 were even more tender than the first... More

We had a wonderful meal there with about 30 other people in our party and the staff executed everything perfectly. The food was delicious, the drinks were amazing and the service was fantastic. Great spot right on the water, too!

Stayed recently at a resort close by and visited this place 3 times for breakfast and twice for dinner. Overall you will love the breakfast here because you get the most bang out of your money. The price is reasonable and the quantity is HUGE. We always had hard time finish everything that we ordered. Everything are freshly made and... More

Stopped at Matthews for a late lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. We were the only people in the restaurant. We had great service, a table with a great view, and a very tasty lunch. All was wonderful; I would have rated it a 5 if that was our only experience. But we decided to come back for breakfast on... More

Dinner on the beach is always at the top of my list on vacation, Matthews did not disappoint. The Lobster Bisque was excellent to start the night. We ordered the Seafood pasta and the Grouper and my wife was a little disappointed with the pasta. All in all a enjoyable night on the beach.

My wife's favorite restaurant on Aruba! We had 3 guests down this 2-1/2 week trip and we dined at Matthew's four times. Food was delicious, service was outstanding (Marcos, Alex, and Natalia!!), and the waterfront ambiance just can't be beat! Steaks, PC Shrimp, Escargot, a talented bartender (!!!). Two of our friends were first-timers to Aruba and asked to go... More

While they're on island time, you won't be sorry to wait. Good food, good service, great view since you're right on the beach. Some of the best prices we've found on the island. Yummy breakfast! Good happy hours, and TVs to keep track of the World Cup.

The service was wonderful, first of all. We arrived early without reservations and we were immediately seated. The seafood eaten by one in our party was delicious. We watched the sunset as we ate. Good food and good surroundings!

We went on all you can eat rib night. Looking around in a crowded restaurant, others came for the same reason. First, Alexander provided friendly and great service. Ribs were cooked well(not dry) and the sauce was excellent. Add to the fact the first plate had two racks of ribs, and you can see overeating coming. For me, all I... More
