“Wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

I went with my 12 year old daughter to this amazing restaurant last week...such an experience! We had dinner outside in the courtyard, it was beautiful! The service was excellent and so friendly. I ordered the Chilean sea bass, which was melt in your mouth. My daughter has food allergies so the kitchen made her a pasta which she loved...highly recommend this place for a really nice meal...Michelle M

“Best Downtown Restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

To start the entire staff are friendly and professional, what a pleasure! We did not know but our table was outdoors, dinning Al fresco is delightful in the Bahamas! We ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir that came to the table at the correct temperature, it is a shame that most restaurants don't do this properly, but they did. We started the antipasto for three and was very good. Our server Elmer is a real pro he knows the menu and directed us based on our conversation to the correct dish. We had the pasta with lobster/crab that had a terrific taste and little bite that was fantastic.
I defiantly recommend this restaurant!

“Best Value in Nassau”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

This is the best restaurant for the price in Nassau.

Old Town Nassau is not the best place for fine dining and the selection of nice restaurants is limited.

That said, Cafe Matisse is very good despite the lack of competition.

There are more restaurant options at the various resorts but generally of lesser value: much higher price for the same food quality.

“Lovely lunch in the garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We came here for lunch after taking a break from Atlantis to check out Nassau. We ate in the garden area of the restaurant, which I highly recommend. The food tasted fresh and delicious and the service was excellent. We would definitely return for lunch or dinner probably without the kids next time.

“Don't miss this gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Read about this on TA before we went on our cruise. Fabulous meal, + service. And to the Canadian guy who wrote about horseradish sauce that he didn't like~~~ read the menu moron, it said it right there. If you didn't like horseradish sauce, why the hell did you order it. I also noticed you didn't have a good thing to say about anywhere you went. This was a fabulously lovely restaurant, and the owner was delightful, even asking the construction crew hammering next door on the new police station, to stop while the lunch diners were there (and they did!)
