We were at this restaurant last night. My husband thought the appetizer of the goat cheese lightly seared with prosciutto was the best thing he’s had in years! I had the escargot which was really good. And then my husband had a meat combo plate that looked amazing. He didn’t even give me a taste so it must’ve been really good. I did feel them it was a little on the pricey side; but it was good.

If you are a shrimp lover, you will love Matthews. We both had shrimp dishes, mine was piña colada shrimp and my daughters was coconut shrimp. I am very particular when it comes to shrimp and in my opinion this shrimp was fresh, crisp, and sweet. I have experienced many shrimp dishes that have been prepared perfectly and with various recipes, but if the shrimp is not good, there is nothing they can do with it to make it better. Matthews had no problem like that because the shrimp itself was the best! The Caramel Flan for dessert was perfect as was the creme brûlée.

Our table was literally 25 feet from the waves. We had the server, Marcos, very friendly and very efficient. He actually hugged us when we left. I lived the food, the drinks were good, and it was an easy find location...definitely check it out.

Gorgeous view. Pretty decent food and atmosphere. The birds were kind of annoying though kept trying to steal our food once it came so we tried to eat quick
