Four of us stopped in for dinner with no reservation on a Tuesday evening. The pleasant host said it would be a 15 min wait, no problem. We went to the empty bar to wait. A young bartender approached us and took our order, 2 wines, 2 cocktails. Then we waited, and waited and waited for almost 12 min's watching... More

We traveled with a family of 11, with two infants. The servers were keenly aware of the needs of children and treated them like family. I'd like to point out one thing they did well, but the fact is they did EVERYTHING well. The service was amazing, the atmosphere was beautiful, and the food was also very good. Granted, it's...

Had diner here our first night in Aruba-we were staying next door at Casa Del Mar. Great location, right on the beach. We had seafood dish and it was prepared perfectly. We had lunch there several days later and again had the same experience. The wait staff was prompt and friendly. We would definitely return.

In Aruba, we stayed at Casa Del Mar so Matthew's was on our resort. We went New Year's week so January 2017. The atmosphere was great. Right off the beach and no reservations needed. They have happy hour everyday from 12-1pm, 4-6pm, and 9-10pm. The deal is always 2 for 1 which is nice when you are with a group.... More

Not much too say other than see the pictures and try it out. The staff is really warm and friendly and it has quickly become my breakfast favorite!

We went there on Christmas day because not many restaurants were opened on that day. We ordered an calamari for appetizer, 2 seafood dishes and 2 kids meals. The food was good. But when we paid our bill and my husband asked if the tips was included in the bill (we saw a 15% charge on the bill), the waiter... More

We went here without reservations. There were 5 in our party. For some reason the guy at the desk was making this big stink about how he wasn't sure if he could accommodate us and if he did get us a table the service would be slow. They must have been short staffed that night because the place was empty... More
