After a 10 day research trip, my girlfriend and I wanted a great meal before returning home. Since my usual places in Nassau have few options for a vegetarian like my girlfriend, we chose Cafe Matisse as it was #1 on TripAdvisor. We were lead through the building to a beautiful courtyard. After being seated, we ordered a pair of... More

Best restaurant in Nassau, with 5 star dinner and superb service. Ask for the courtyard, with its' magical setting with palm trees and soft lighting. The servers were smartly dressed in black pants with white shirts and white aprons. We appreciated that one server was responsible for refilling the guests water glasses. Fresh, tasty cuisine (a bit too much butter... More

During the week Matisse is full of bankers and other folk who work downtown, as well as ladies of leisure who pop into town. By night it's a mix of business folk, visitors, friends and couple. We all know the owner Greg -... More

We visited Matisse in mid January on a lovely evening with my lady friend and my sister. We decided to eat outside in their beautiful outdoor setting. We were seated and my lady friend asked for another table. They moved us to another lovely table where we took pictures. However my sister who is a young 87 needed to retreat... More

I recently visited Café Matisse for the first time for a birthday dinner, and was floored by the terrible service we received. Our table of ten was sat to the rear of the restaurant, then completely forgotten! Our reservation was for 8:30pm, however, entrees nor appetizers were received until after 11pm (by which time,a manager had been requested twice). Once... More

A more upscale restaurant for the Bahamas with excellent food. We enjoyed everything we ordered from salmon pizza to mixed seafood platter. Well worth the cost.
