A great lunchtime Bahamian place. It feels very welcoming. The food is very good, you must try some of the fish dishes - they're the best. The wine is pretty good, could have a few better bottles but what it has is very enjoyable. The location is great, perfect spot for lunch after being in town.

We chose to come to the restaurant based on other tripadvisor reviews, and we are so glad that we did. We made a reservation for Valentine's day about a month in advance. The service is absolutely amazing and the food is perfect. We ate outside under the stars and by the candle light. If you are thinking of a romantic... More

Every time we come to Nassau we eat at least two nights at Cafe Matisse. On our first night on the island we had an under-whelming meal. Party of four and our friends first time visiting, and on our prompting, they were wondering why we liked ti so much. Service always great, but the foods we ordered were buffet level... More

Every thing about Cafe Matisse is consistently excellent ..food, service and ambiance. That Greg (owner) has been able to maintain such a high standard over these many years is testimony of his absolute dedication to excellence in his profession.

I love everything about this restaurant! The food is delightful, the ambiance relaxed yet very special and the service just how I like it - not in your face but there when you need it.

Always friendly and inviting. Food is always of a good standard with friendly wait staff. The courtyard adds a different theme and is an attractive option especially for tourists. Parking is tough unless you find an offer to valet.

I really can't add to anything else that hasn't already been said about this GREAT place. The Service by everyone from the Host to the assistant waiters was exceptional. The customers are first here for sure. The food is reasonably priced unlike a few others around town that are grossly over priced. Number 1 in our book and will definetley... More

This restaurant is very upscale but the good is mediocre and not worth the price. I would skip it. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is great but the food is simply too pedestrian and the menu is not creative. It reeks of a tourist trap.

Thank Gregg C
