This restaurant is directly on the beach. We walked in at 7 pm with no booking. We were seated at the bar we only waited 10 minutes for a table and were given a front row table near the beach. The sun had set but with the waves lapping on the beach and pretty lights on the palm trees it... More

My husband and I spent a week at an all inclusive resort nearby, but decided to go "off campus" to this restaurant. I started with a shrimp cocktail which was good, but overpriced for four smallish shrimp. I ordered the special of the day which was a surf and turf. The lobster tail was good, but small. The steak was... More

My nephew took me to Matthew's for dinner on my first visit to Aruba. The servers, Sara and Jonathan did a great job with the selection of dishes and recommendations. The escargot and seafood dish I had were out of this world, as well as a very outstanding atmosphere and staff. I would totally visit Matthew's on my next trip... More

I've been to Aruba twice and had the opportunity to eat at Matthew's on both occasions. I had a wonderful overall experience the first time which made Matthew's a must to go place every time I visit the island. My first visit, March 2016, Sara got in charge of my table, the kindest and most patient server at the restaurant.... More

Aruba has had many changes in the 14 years I've traveled there, but one thing never changes - the staff at Matthews is always there to greet me. Everyone from the bartenders to the wait staff is friendly and accommodating. Nilsida and Marcos always acknowledge you by waving from the restaurant. Bhing and Eveline are seasoned bartenders who go the... More

Matthews has excellent food and wait staff. The bartenders Bhing, Eveline, Semi and Dana are so awesome. Never have to wait, always a smile on their faces even when I have heard others not being so nice to them. They have a good time while helping you and become a friend rather than just a bartender. They care about their... More

For my first time in Aruba, I felt very welcomed right away by the extremely kind and outgoing kinda staff at Matthew's. Everyone at both the bar and resturant were very pleasant and accommodating to not only myself but many others. Though most of their food is fairly average (which isn't a bad thing), the resturant is set in a... More
