When I go to the Caribbean I am looking for local seafood to eat. For some reason their is a lot of jerked chicken and ribs and some seafood that might not pass as what it is suppose to be and I was not to successful in finding a lot of really good local seafood in Aruba. I found Matthew's Beachside Restraurant for lunch early in my vacation and ordered the Carribean Seafood Soup. Awesome, really good, so good I went back three more times just to get the soup. The restaurant is located beside Divi Resort and is right on the beach with happy hour several times a day and the staff is very nice and the service is great and they take a credit card. The view is what you are looking for, go there and get the Carribean Seafood Soup and the Ship's Mate Sandwich and your favorite drink and enjoy.

We went here for breakfast. Everyone thought the eggs and omelets were excellent. The price was very reasonable for Aruba and location on the beach is great. Had a side of pancakes which I would pass on next time.

Our last day in Aruba found our cupboards bare so we walked to Matthew's for breakfast. My husband got oatmeal and enjoyed it while I got 2 pancakes which were very good. I had ordered them with strawberries but the waitress came out and said they didn't have strawberries. So I asked for the blueberries instead. They were not very good, just defrosted and shriveled up. I liked that you got a carafe of coffee. We enjoyed the seating right on the beach.

We had breakfast and lunch here several times while staying at Aruba Beach Club next door. Great breakfast and lunch, and wonderful, friendly service. The rare ahi tuna salad was terrific.

Went here two years in a row for all the ribs you can eat. Both occasions ribs were excellent and there was absolutely no need for a second helping! It is a fine establishment for families with small children and a great spot to see the sunset on the beach from your table. Hostess was the best getting us a table on a crowded evening and our wait staff was also very accommodating.
