“Awesome”
Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

We ate there on our 4th night of our trip - very close walking distance from our resort at Bucuti. We had the pumpkin soup, tuna steak and seafood combo, which were all outstanding. Definitely a must for dinner in Aruba!

“Difference”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A little disappointed this year. We had so much about this restaurant that we were disappointed. The food was just allright and the service as well.

“Lots of choices”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Matthew's is an easy walk from Bucuti & Tara. We ate there twic and enjoyed dining right on the beach - about 15 feet from the surf! Lots of good choices - we ate there twice; my wife had tuna and really enjoyed it - I had shrimp two different ways and enjoyed both of the dishes. Prices are reasonable and service was good.
