Perfect location on an idyllic beach, truly excellent food and service par excellence from Marcos who had a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommended for a delicious meal in a great spot.

Excellent dinner experience!

We spent a wonderful time, with excellent food, beverages and a very special environment at the beachside. Marcos, our waiter was simple spectacular, with a state of the art service attitude and wonderful and quick response to all our requests. Congratulations!!

“Love to hear the Ocean while having a great dinner”

Matthews is one of those restaurants we look forward to every trip! You sit steps away from the Ocean and the food is excellent. Nothing better then a good mean and the sound of the Ocean to truly make you feel like your on vacation! Visited November 2016

“Cool breezes”

We stayed at the Casa del Mar for a week, visited Matthews quite often. The first night of our stay, after flying all day, grocery shopping, we were famished, Walked across the pool area, and greeted by a friendly face. Sanders our waiter,was quite attentive, took our orders right away. [...]

“Delightful beachside dining experience!”

We were staying at the Divi Divi, which is an "all inclusive" resort (and very nice, by the way), but we were just in the mood to travel outside Divi confines for a nite. We chose Matthews because it had good reviews and was just a short walk. It was [...]

“Outdoor delight”

We went there for dinner with friends twice during our stay. Blackened Mahi Mahi, Encrusted Tuna & filet were all great. Also had goat cheese wrapped & broiled in prosciutto which we enjoyed as well. Great breeze. Unfortunately it was too overcast both nights so there were no sunsets.

“Great burgers”

We ate lunch here twice for the delicious burgers and pina coladas! At lunch they serve two for one happy hour and right on the beach!

“This is our “Go To” restaurant in Aruba”

“Great food, great service, great view”

Atmosphere - beautiful beach view. We got to watch a cruise ship leaving the island and the waves crashing on an almost empty beach area. It was the best view of any dinner we had this week. We go there early and the pool bar at Casa del Mar was [...]

“View to ‘sea’”

DH and I love dining at Matthew's. We make reservations for dinner, so we can procure a table by the sea. On our most recent visit, I had a superb sesame encrusted ahi tuna steak with soy and wasabi. Absolutely delicious! DH had clams with garlic and olive oil over [...]
