We arrived after recommendations. The ceviche was excellent but since there was no crab or lobster, we ordered crawfish. We asked whether it was enough to share and she said yes, there are seven big shrimp. To me, that means the type of shrimp with shells you pull the heads off and crack open.

We ordered the fish ceviche, mixed rice, and the chicken. Every dish was great, the staff was friendly and the environment was relaxed.

Been to Matin's many times before. Never been disappointed!! Great service and the food is amazing. Try the fish with ginger butter, the fish kebab and the famous pasta with salsa a la cazadora. Finish your meal with a nice shot of bushy rum.

Our dinner was very good. The atmosphere is pleasant. The service is good. There was some musical entertainment. It's a bit pricier than other good options in Freshwater Bay.

Delicious and casual, and some type of music most nights. We only stayed on the island 8 nights and ended up coming here twice. The ginger butter on the catch of the day is wow.
