Cafe Matisse offers a wonderful dining experience. Its secluded garden courtyard gives it a romantic feel-- and its food quality and service is exceptional. We enjoyed the octopus salad and the mixed seafood platter. Both the red and white sangria were delicious. Ask for the avocado mousse for dessert!

On a recent business trip I was able to check out the Cafe Matisse. Fabulous place. If the weather is right, try to get a table outside. Great little patio area. The mahi-mahi dish was wonderful. The service is great.

We own a timeshare in Nassau and Cafe Matisse is a must every year. The food is always excellent for reasonable prices. The service is impeccable and the restaurant is lovely. There is a pretty outdoor area that is delightful as well. Try the lobster risotto in champagne sauce - fantastic!

My wife had the lamb and I had the duck. Both were prepared with precision and the taste. The service was attentive and we enjoyed our visit with the restaurant owner when he made a personal appearance at our table. Outside seating is enjoyable just understand that a fly may try to invade your meal otherwise, sit inside. I would... More

This is one of the few restaurants on our "go-to" list here in Nassau. You can sit in the garden area, or inside. The pasta is delicious, appetizers are fantastic and they always have local fish on the menu. We've only had an issue one time where my brother in law had to send his steak back four times before...

It was so amazing we had to go twice in the short time that we were visiting Nasau. If you have the chance I would sit outside in the back garden - it's super peaceful. The wait staff was very polite and welcoming. All the food was delicious. I didn't hear a complaint the entire time we were there. The... More
