Between my family and I, we tried almost everything on the menu. All the food was delicious and the service was top notch ! ! I found it to be a little pricey but the quality of the dishes, the service, and the atmosphere made it worth it. I do think that next time I will do some cooking in... More

We were in Aruba on vacation, and went to Matthews for the experience of open air dining on the beach. We were blown away by their food, so much so, we went for dinner twice that week! We had a chicken dish that was amazing, but the Filet Mignon was out of this world, the best we ever had!!! If... More

We were two families with four adults and four children. We went to eat breakfast at Matthew's. The breakfast was very good and affordable! We ordered the American breakfast which came with eggs, bacon, sausage , toast , a little fruit and coffee. It was very good. Our children ordered pizza from the kids menu and they enjoyed it. It...

This restaurant has an amazing view. Located right on the beach. It is the closest you can get to. They dont have too many tables for on beach dining. Food was great, had soup, grouper and desert. Overall a good experience and good hospitality.

On the grounds of the Casa del Mar resort. Three of us had lunch yesterday. Nice menu, something for everyone, pricing in line w/ current dining. 2 roast beef paninis and a seafood soup/house salad ... Well prepared, tasty, generous portions. (Watch the hot sauce (side seasoning) for the soup .. will numb your tongue!)

So I do not like do not like writing breakfast reviews. Really what can you do to a fried or scrambled egg. Turns out a lot if your promoting the item as part of a special including another cooked item. The last three times we went to Martins including the last Saturday in July they could not deliver all specialty... More

This was by far one of the best locations to have dinner. While the restaurant is located in a resort, there is public parking right outside. You are literally right on the beach. Amazing sunset views, excellent staff and a great dinner... Overall, a truly excellent experience for all. Will definitely be back here next year. If not twice! 👍😁.... More

My wife and I make sure to visit Matthew's every year we return to Aruba. We love the Wednesday party, and the all you can eat rib night serves some of the best ribs in Aruba. Atmosphere is very nice, the staff is very attentive.

On a recent trip to Aruba I stopped here with some friends as we were 'hopping' around Island sampling a bunch of spots. I had the crab cakes and truly they were one of the worst menu items I've ever eaten. Admittedly others in my party had other items that they said was good but it wasn't the crab cakes.... More

Our server Sander was extremely gracious and the sevice was excellent. We both ordered the shrimp/pasta special and were delighted with it. Sander mentioned that the next night... More
