Just returned from Nassau, Bahamas where we had a fabulous meal at Cafe Matisse. We sat ouside in the courtyard, lit with lanterns for a wonderful ambiance. Food was delicious and it was difficult to make a choice as the selections all sounded wonderful. I had braised lamb shank which was to be served with mashed potatoes but since I preferred the saffron risotto which accompanied the veal shanks, the waiter made the switch. My husband had a filet mignon which was quite large and cooked perfectly. The wait staff was very pleasant and accommodating, which is not always the case in the Bahamas as gratuities are almost always included so there is no incentive for exceptional service. We wanted to return but the restaurant is closed Sun, Mon. I highly recommend Cafe Matisse, you won't be disappointed.

A little oasis of calm in hectic Nassau. Great food and off the "touristy trail" that can be Nassau.

Cafe Mattisse was a nice change from the Atlanis restaurants. Not cheap but better than the Atlantis. Very good food, nice atmosphere, garden seating. Very good service. Locals eat there.
I would encourage anyone to give it a try.

The food is great, the atmosphere is great. Make a reservation. It is pricey but you do get a better feel than Atlantis. Second only to Sun and.. (which closed down (: a couple of years ago). The garden setting is perfect fo the Bahamas.

Indoor seating, table clothes, real italian food. Nice change after open-air restaurants with fish-fry and steaks only.
