A flawless and delightful gastronomic experience. Everything, and I mean everything, was superbly well done. The food was the best Italian meal I have ever had; the service was amazing – highly efficient, professional and friendly with a perfect, yet unobtrusive recognition when you need something. As well, the décor was very pleasant (the courtyard was not available because it... More

I have dined here once before this time and it did not let me down. This restaurant is fantastic - the art, the food, the prosecco, the staff - everything is great. Many of the local businessmen and politicians come here so you know it has to be great!

We stopped here for a bit and grab some lunch, prices I thought were a little on expensive side but everything tasted good, it becomes expensive when you travel with family but worth the try.

Café Matisse is tucked into a nook near the library & parliament. We had a very enjoyable lunch. I had the pumpkin ravioli with bacon, which was amazing. The lunch crowd was a little loud which kind of put a damper on anything romantic. The staff was wonderful and even directed us to the art museum. I highly recommend Café... More

What a wonderful surprise this place was for a group lunch. Kind of tucked away in a corner a couple of blocks from the cruise ship port you will find this wonderful gem of a restaurant. The building itself is a wonderfully upgraded old home with a lot of character. The outside seating patio is wonderful and just the quiet... More

I have heard about Cafe Matisse for years but never tried it. So glad we finally did! The service is excellent. From the moment you walk in you feel welcome and everyone is very attentive. Amazing food, I'm not sure what they do to make things we have had before taste so much better, but they do it. The calamari... More

Huge difference in atmosphere. Curry shrimp was awesome. Lobster linguine average. Caribbean lobster is small and tougher than Maine. Desserts were really nothing special. GService was great. People very nice.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the courtyard at Cafe Matisse. Very busy popular restaurant with very attentive and pleasant staff. The food was delicious and wine very good. Unfortunately there were lots of flies in the garden which were a little annoying despite the waiter bringing out a deterrent during our meal - and worth mentioning that it might... More
