Donde Martin was a small deception, the fish fillet was ok but they use a lot of oregano to temper. Attention was ok, but price is a little bit high.

All the dishes i tried were delicious! Cooked with native ingredients found in the island along with a nice wine selection. It's a small cozy place so come early or make reservations!

Restaurant is right off the water, comfortable and clean, and the food is in large portions and delicious! We had fresh grilled grouper and Mahi-Mahi, with coconut rice and fries, which was fantastic; the coconut pie was on the menu for our next visit, and it was tremendous. Highly recommended!

We arrived after recommendations. The ceviche was excellent but since there was no crab or lobster, we ordered crawfish. We asked whether it was enough to share and she said yes, there are seven big shrimp. To me, that means the type of shrimp with shells you pull the heads off and crack open. What arrived was seven prawns in... More

Just left the restaurant still hungry (and now angry). The waitress just forgot half of our order. Brought apetitizer and drinks, but forgot main course. 1 hour later, when questioned about the food she just looked at me as if i was crazy (no no, you didnt order). Well, if I hadnt asked details about the dish and didnt ask... More

Been to Matin's many times before. Never been disappointed!! Great service and the food is amazing. Try the fish with ginger butter, the fish kebab and the famous pasta with salsa a la cazadora. Finish your meal with a nice shot of bushy rum.

Our dinner was very good. The atmosphere is pleasant. The service is good. There was some musical entertainment. It's a bit pricier than other good options in Freshwater Bay.
