Spend your money wisely and stay in Nassau for REAL fine dining. We had reservations @ Nobu but decided to do some research since we heard how pricey it was. Feedback was less than flattering from Trip Advisor, so we changed to Cafe Matisse. WOW! The owner, Greg, takes the time to chat up all the guests while the extremely... More

We loved the romantic atmosphere but be aware that this is not a restaurant for a tight budget. Make sure to ask to be outside for a great ambiance.

Ate here with my friend's mom, they have a house here so they know all of the great local places. I had the lamb, it was amazing. The calamari to start was great and to finish with a bohemian coffee was fantastic. They served homemade cookies after dinner and even gave my son a coffee cup full of whipped cream... More

I've been coming to Cafe Matisse for almost 16 years and it has never disappointed ... Superb food and personal service make this the best in Nassau -- the menu is sophisticated and if you can dine in the garden you are in for a treat -- it's gorgeous on a warm evening A great mix of locals and foodies...

We enjoyed an outstanding multi-course meal while in town on business. The wine list was exceptional as was the variety of local sea food. The preparations were on the continental side of the Italian-food spectrum which suited the eclectic tastes of our party of eight. The service was unsurpassed. Cafe Matisse has deservedly earned its reputation as one of the... More

My husband and I had dinner here with a large group of people from all ages and cultures. I think it was safe to say that everyone enjoyed their meal and the setting was lovely. We ate outside, perfect weather, twinkling lights, great food and wine. A fantastic evening and a restaurant I would definitely revisit!

This restaurant is very charming and the staff all very friendly. They picked us up at out hotel and brought us back for free. I had almond crusted grouper. It was not what I though...it was so much better. Everyone else's dinners were very good also. The prices were so much cheaper than on Paradise Island.

Our visit to the Café Matisse is a must on our to do list here in Nassau. We would feel guilty leaving Nassau without having had a meal at this place ! Since we have been travelling to Nassau in the late 90ties we have been enjoying many excellent meals at the Matisse. An there was no difference this week:... More

Looking for a great restaurant in the Bahamas then look no further - we found it - Cafe Matisse. We sat in the outdoor garden section adding to the overall experience. The server, Clifton, was outstanding as he socialized with us regularly through out the evening (our choosing) and really understood the menu. We asked his opinion on entrees and... More
