I recently visited Café Matisse for the first time for a birthday dinner, and was floored by the terrible service we received. Our table of ten was sat to the rear of the restaurant, then completely forgotten! Our reservation was for 8:30pm, however, entrees nor appetizers were received until after 11pm (by which time,a manager had been requested twice). Once... More

Love, Love, Love Cafe Matisse! The food is excellent and the service is fantastic. This was our second time visiting and we were so happy we did. Dining in the courtyard is so nice and relaxing.Can't wait to go back!

A more upscale restaurant for the Bahamas with excellent food. We enjoyed everything we ordered from salmon pizza to mixed seafood platter. Well worth the cost.

Very pretty restaurant with artwork by Matisse all throughout hence the name. Not your typical Italian restaurant fare. Very good food although a bit pricey and small portions. Very excellent wait staff

We were celebrating the holidays and ventured out to Cafe Matisse for dinner. Have been there many times before and have to say : always great food and warm friendly service in the heart of downtown Nassau. The owner is always present to make sure that all is well and the menu provides a well rounded choice. I had the... More

Caffe Matisse was an outstanding place, we sat down in the courtyard of the Restaurant which was amazing, the sound of the birds, the peaceful you can feel being there just made you remind *oh, you really are on a holiday* Service was excellent, we had Carpaccio, it was delicious and some cold beers. I could highly recommend this beautiful... More

This restaurant is a must do. The menu changes but I have visited over 12+ times and have never left disappointed. It is within walking distance from the cruise ship pier and is tucked away. Must check out if you're visiting and have time for dinner. Make reservations.

Having looked at the culinary offerings in great detail (and being thoroughly disgusted by the Fish Fry area), we made a reservation for a NYE lunch. We knew this place had great reviews and today we weren't disappointed. The area is in the business and government center a short walk away from all the touristy stuff. It feels more authentic...
