My wife and I stumbled upon Matthew's on accident during happy hour the first day of our honeymoon. We returned 4 different times for happy hour during our stay. The beers are cold and pina coladas are great. I never had to ask for another beer. My favorite meal was the Grouper sandwich. You won't find a better value and friendlier staff on the island.

We had delicious meal here with fast professional service. We had seafood and mixed drinks, all made very well and served with iced water (which you don't want to avoid when in Aruba).

Best beach on the island, Food is delicious. Stayed at the Casa Del Mar and had the ribs. Fell of the bone and they covered the whole plate. Couldn't finish them.

We've been to this Restaurant on three different trips to Aruba and we keep coming back. The proximity to the ocean and the sound of the ocean is so alluring. The food has been excellent and we have yet to find a bad waiter as we've had a different person all three times. We've found that good wait staff all help each other and Mathew's staff always seem to be kind and gracious. I've had the surf and turf each time and my wife has had the grouper. She especially likes that the grouper isn't breaded. We have friends who have time-share at the Casa Del Mar and they also rave about the restaurant and it's happy hour. Nice and easy.

Food is VERY good. Service is so slow EXCEPT if you have Jonathan or Sara. They're great! Lots of flies though.
