Cafe Matisse is a favourite to many locals - the food is excellent and the service is fantastic! The restaurant is a favourite for business lunches and dinners but is also much loved for casual personal dining.

Terrible! Arrogant and unfriendly front of house- inhospitable and son's third birthday dinner totally ruined as a result- would never go back. Kept waiting for almost thirty minutes for a table even though had a reservation. Made to feel like we should be grateful for even being there even though heavily pregnant. Son's third birthday ruined as a result wished... More

Now I am lucky enough to go to a lot of quality restaurants and this would be in my top 5 in the world! That is saying something. Everything about your dining experience is quality ranging from service, ambience and of course food and beverage. I ate here several times over the last year and every time was better than... More

Had lunch at this spot in Nassau. very comfortable, the waiters are very attentive, the food simple but tasteful and delicious. We had a very lazy afternoon there in the courtyard. Would love to go back at night.

A charming restaurant with amazing food. we have been visiting Nassau for the past 12 years and we eat here at least 2 nights each time. The outside dining area is so quaint with the beautiful subtle lighting. And in 12 years we have never had a bad meal. It is consistently delicious . Greg, the owner, is hands on... More

The concierge at our hotel managed to get a table for us last night (Saturday) when we wanted to dine at this restaurant. It was just by chance we choose to eat here on Saturday night because had we left it until the Sunday evening we would have been disappointed as it's closed Sunday and Monday evening and we were...

Love this restaurant. Lived in the Bahamas for two years and always rated this the best restaurant there. Lovely little courtyard at the back of the restaurant....felt remarkably like you were in Italy. Superb food and service. Outstanding for Nassau!

When I am in the Bahamas I prefer a fish BBQ and a conch salad on the beach, but if business or romance, dictates a formal dinner, Cafe Matisse and Graycliffe are THE places to go.

We have been to this restaurant many times since it opened and have never been disappointed and weren't again. Greg is a gracious host and his staff is always there with a smile and a recommendation. We took my bro in law and he agreed; one of the best meals he had and he ought to know having been to... More
