Nice place to have lunch, but dinner menu offers more options and better selections. Nice wines and meats cooked to perfection. Impecable and friendly service from the staff.

I really hate to leave a review on Cafe Matisse since the more people find this jewel, the harder it will be for future reservations! It is a wonderful and romantic restaurant hidden in the Government square downtown Nassau and for lunch is frequented by the members of the Parliament and other high ranking officials. The entrance is subtle and... More

Quiet atmosphere, food is Italian Cuisine. The owners wife is from Italy. The portions were small but very tasty. The wine selection was great.

The outside patio is lovely! The wait staff was polite, friendly and knowledgable. Husband had the mahi mahi and I had the steak. Both were great! Each had drinks and dessert and everything was delicious. Nice anniversary dinner. Will return for sure.

By far our best meal in the Bahamas. Worth every dollar. Pace yourself and make sure you get to dessert. Everything was fantastic.
