Normally, I prefer to dine at restaurants that are NOT affiliated with a hotel. When the taxi pulled up to Matthew's, my family was certain I would say we should go elsewhere. I decided to surprise them by not saying anything. Once seated, they told us it was "All you can eat Rib night". My husband and oldest son ordered... More

Great food and staff. Love Bing! Great views of the ocean, right on the beach. We ate there either in the restaurant or at the bar during our entire stay.

The food was delicious. It's wide open and practically on the beach. The portions are huge and the staff was nice. We did Karaoke after dinner, well, at least the teenagers did. Kids also took pics on the beach at night. Very cool place.

The food is good the service is good, but the view is breathtaking. We've only had lunch here, but it's worth a try.

We stayed at the resort where Matthew's is located, Casa del Mar, so we had a breakfast and a lunch here. The seaside locale can't be beat, the service was attentive and helpful (including accommodations for my vegetarian daughter), and the prices were reasonable by island standards. We also stopped by for the entertainment a couple of times and enjoyed... More

Located at Casa del Mar resort on Eagle Beach, we stopped in for lunch while on our way back from Baby Beach. Service was quick, food good, location right on beach, and drink special was 2 for 1. While visiting Sands Eatery at the Marriott, the waiter was ok bringing 1 drink to me first, then my second (so not... More

My husband and I decided to head back to Matthews for our date night after such a wonderful experience last year. We made reservations online and the process was flawless--they gave us the exact table we requested. Although the host/manager was very solicitous, the service was very slow. It was a good 10 minutes before he even came over for... More

We dined at Matthews last week and really enjoyed sitting close to the beach. The view is beautiful and the sound of the waves is a perfect touch for a quiet, romantic dinner. Our food was delicious and the service was very good!
