We have stayed at Paradise Island for a week and everywhere there is a 15% gratuity added for bad or no service. Even when ordering at the counter at any of the fast food places. This place had great food and exceptional service. All the courses tasted great, many samples given for the wines to make sure we liked it.

Our evening started with a very friendly welcome from the manager and it only got better. The atmosphere is so inviting.

The food is outstanding starting with... More

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.
