We went here because of the name (our son shares it...and was with us) - it was Sunday afternoon and we were looking for an early happy hour. I must say the happy hour start is a little weird and it's hard to get up to the bar, but after about 20 minutes things cleared out and the fun began.... More

Went to Matthews on all you can eat ribs night. We had a rather large party. Most people ordered ribs. Only a few had other meals. The server was very friendly and tried to accommodate. The management did not give him the help they should have for our size. Took almost 2 hours from sitting down to eating. Tough with... More

We first went to Matthew's when. I read in Destination Aruba several years ago that they serve a dish called piña olds shrimp. It is very good! They also have an all you can eat rib night. It can be warm there and the restrooms are definitely hot. But, it is a nice place with good food.

Nice romantic dinner right by the beach. Food was good, service was good. Just felt like we were being rushed.

We ate here several times, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is very tasty. Location is great. Very pretty to look out on the water while dining. Staff was very friendly and responsive to our needs. One of their most popular nights is Tuesday when they have all-you-can-eat ribs, ironically it was my least favorite meal with them. If you do... More

We ate here on a Tuesday. They offer all you can eat ribs that night. The food is good. I had the cordon bleu. It was okay. The setting is nice as it is ocean front.

This restaurant is located right near the beach, so as you're dining, you have a beautiful view of Aruba's blue waters. We were here for lunch, which is also one of their happy hours. They have three different happy hours each day, and a lot of drinks to choose from and food that is really good prices. We just ordered... More
