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

We have been to the island over 20 times and Matthew's is our favorite place to watch sunset, eat lunch and enjoy happy hours. The atmosphere is great, the views are amazing but the staff are the real treat. Each one has their own way of making your experience one to remember. Humphrey makes great Mohitos and Jhonny is always... More

We've been coming to Aruba for 15 years and we never miss an opportunity to have lunch at Matthew's. The grilled ship mate sandwich is delicious! My parents love to sit beachfront and enjoy the beautiful sea. In my opinion the staff is what makes Matthew's wonderful. They remember you year after year. They create a family feel, a home...
