The service, food, and atmosphere at Cafe Matisse was amazing. This is some of the best food I have ever had, not to mention by far the best restaurant in the Bahamas. The handmade pasta was cooked to perfection, the seafood was amazing, and the dessert was to die for! We ordered a bottle of one of the french wines... More

The food was rich with flavours. I ordered the prawn red curry with jasmine rice, it was very well presented and tasted amazing! The best meal I had in the two weeks I stayed in the bahamas. It was quiet pricey, but definitely worth it!! Definitely recommend to anyone staying in nassau. The service was good and people where friendly.

Authentic Italian cooking, impeccable service and great ambiance! Our first choice for lunch or dinner in Nassau and they have always been accomodating when we bring our young children along for lunch.

Have been returning here for decades and never disappointed. Food, service and somewhat more casual than the other upscale restaurants. Great experience. Go there for lunch or dinner

A+ restaurant with respects to both food and service. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Best meal we had in Nassau. They can hold their own with top restaurants in any major city.

The meal was superb. The dishes they've created are extraordinary! Nothing routine here. We had a group of 14 which they managed with great attention and ease - never missed a beat! Each meal was unique and brilliant. The setting was casual, but sophisticated and elegant. Have traveled the world and this shot up to my short list of top... More

Excellence menu, food is amazing, attentive service . When you ordered coffee, it's came with cookies, but they won't tell you that , I believe , so you can spend more money and when you bring your own bottle of wine, they won't tell you how much is to open , unless you ask. Otherwise a grate place.

Our entire dining experience was perfect. We had made reservations for 8 PM but decided to try for an earlier seating and they were very nice and were able to seat us at 6:30. Attentive service, absolutely delightful surroundings and excellent food. The owner made a point of circulating throughout the restaurant and was very personable and thanked us several... More
