Excellent service by the friendliest staff on the Island and the food was fabulous! The event planner had referred to us a very talented musician who was a wonderful addition to this very special and... More

Also a great place for dinner. The tuna is awesome as well as the grouper. This is a fabulous beachside restaurant with wonderful attentive staff. They have several specialty nights and entertainment. Truly a MUST while in Aruba, don't have a car? Take the bus or an inexpensive cab ride, really worth it. Why settle or ordinary when you can...

We always stop at Matthew's after landing. It never disappoints! Always the freshest food, I highly recommend the Matthew's sandwich. Prices are so reasonable. And you can't beat the view!

Restaurant is located on a narrow beach path adjacent to Casa Del Mar Resort. It advertises a sunset venue for dinner. There are better places on the island to have a 'sunset dinner'. We found the service to be very professional. Food was very well prepared and presented. Cost is felt to be on the high side.

We were so excited to have breakfast with a beach view with our children who love the beach. We had a reservation and arrived ahead of the reservation time. We sat down on the waiting area to be seated. Unfortunately all of the staff members passed by the seating area without even looking at us to have us seated. After... More

The place is nice and outdoor, with the sea really nearby and some wind. The food is simple but good and there are options for everyone. It is a good place to catch a meal on the middle of a beach day.

On our first night in Aruba we went to Matthew's. Very beautiful restaurant behind a hotel. It's directly on the beach, steps from the ocean. We had nice seat by the ocean and my girls went down on the beach while we waited for our food. We started off with some fried calamari. The calamari in Aruba is so fresh.... More

We had lunch at Matthew's and it was great. We each had a sandwich and split an order of fries (huge), since no sides come with their sandwiches. I had the French turkey wrap, which is turkey brie, apples, and honey mustard, and my husband had a Caribbean chicken sandwich. Both were excellent and perfect lunch fare, as were our... More
