This really is a lovely place in the middle of Nassau. Recommend you sit outside in the courtyard if you can. Food and service were excellent. Highly recommended.

Cafe Matisse was recommended to us by an acquaintance in Nassau. Research here only reinforced the urge to attend. There were six of us and the restaurant was quite busy. Nevertheless, the service was prompt, attentive and very personal. Everything you would expect in a fine dining establishment but in the laid back atmosphere of the Bahamas. We put our... More

I'm from Italy and Cafè Matisse is an Italian Restaurant, owned by an Italian Chef... We ate seafood but I'm under the impression that you won't be disappointed whatever you'll order. The Service is impeccable, if you'll dine in the Garden you'll love it and the tastes... just go...

Super service, super food, super location. One of the best restaurants at Atlantis. The crab starter is particularly good, and they know how to cook a medium rare steak medium rare. Not cheap, but well worth it. A strong recommendation if you're in Nassau.

I was itching to get out of Atlantis and our cab driver recommended this restaurant. Most of the seating in this restaurant is carved out in a quaint garden with string lighting and lovely landscaping. It is right smack dab in the judicial center of town. Wonderfully fresh and creative menu with attentive waitstaff and the owner walks around to... More

A most enjoyable evening with polite service. Stone Crab was so sweet w/sauce, shared on seperate plates and excellent pairing of wines to go with the seafood. The shrimp in a red curry sauce on rice could not be copied at home so a return is to be dreamed about. The seafood platter was a broad stroke of fresh grilled... More

I am so glad I listened to suggestions and we made our way here for dinner instead of Atlantis. For cruisers, it's a short easy walk. For shippies, sorry no wi-fi but worth it for the amazing food. Cute and quaint. From the minute you walk-in we were made to feel like we were home with friends. Glenroy was our... More
