Love this place! The food is amazing and the staff is awesome!
Tuesday was Rib night. Amazing sunset food was excellent but the staff seemed to be a group of elderly gentleman that didn’t really seem to have the service down.
Food was great! Service was awesome! Amazing view of the beach from the beach restaurant!
Amazing restaurant. Right on the water. Very romantic place to have a sunset dinner! Loved it.
Had a excellent meal as we watched the sun set. Marcos our server was amazing....very friendly and we never felt rushed.
We were staying at Casa Del Mar so had some breakfasts, lunches and one dinner. We both ordered red snapper for dinner and it was overcooked so we ate just a bit of it. Breakfast was good. Lunch fair. Nice open air venue and nice servers.
Good food, nice sitting right next to the beach and excellent service
Both the food and service was great. Had a nice table by the water. The waiter explained to us that it would be a up charge for some of the food we order, before we order our dinner. No surprises when the check came. Would go back in a heart beat!
Perfect last-night dinner for us in Aruba!
Sun sets at 6:30, plan ahead for best table!
We love Matthews. Have dined There twice in four days.
Went to Matthews for rib night, amazing night, great service, awesome ribs. Boys had ribs, I had stuffed peppers and daughter had tuna, all exceptional. Our server was attentive and awesome! Great night, highly recommend!
The sunset view at Matthew’s was amazing. The food was delicious, and the brownie dessert with vanilla ice cream was my favorite!
Beautiful setting and ambience, we came here twice in the week we were here because we loved it so much the first time. The food was excellent on both occasions, service was outstanding on the first night (Wednesday 26Feb at 6 PM, I can’t remember the name of our waiter but he was great!). The service was not as good on our second visit, but we still enjoyed everything. We were recommended Matthews by a friend, and will definitely pass along the recommendation!
We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated promptly. The waiter was in a rush and did not want much interaction except to take our order as quickly as possible. When asked he did share some information about their specialty dishes. His assistant did not seem to have the proper training and we had to ask for both bread and to have our water glasses filled several times. The food was good but not outstanding. The location is beautiful but some improvement on the wait staff would be nice.
The red snapper and courvino were excellent.
Great sunset views. Good good and great service. A must on every trip
Matthews was a great find. Not recommended by anyone locally but found online. Beautiful water side restaurant with stunning views of the sunset and beach. Service was good and the food was good as well. Easy to get to and worth going. Not hard to get a reservation at sunset and a very delightful evening.
We go to Matthew's about 3 times when we visit Aruba. The food is good, happy hour is great and when we have our grandson with us he likes to play in the sand while we wait for our food. I would highly recommend Matthew's.
Food and waitstaff were equally wonderful. A trip to Aruba would not be complete without having dinner at Matthew’s. We would highly recommend. Great place to watch sunset.
Right on the water....wonderful service, great food!
Food was good but drinks were watered down and unacceptable.
We enjoyed a sunset dinner at Matthews after Happy Hour at the bar. The food was good and the portions were large. Highly recommended.
We were at this restaurant with my husband and my daughter and son in law and there 3 small children. This was such a nice kid friendly restaurant but with that being said the kid menu has to be scaled down. My granddaughter ordered the pizza that was enough for the whole family. It was all good but kid menu should be for kids. Thank you
Matthew’s Beachside Restaurant can’t be beat for their location right on beach and their food is really good! It has become our favorite place to eat on the island!
The food was excellent and service was outstanding!
Waiter was terrible! Didn’t do what we requested. He was slow and uncaring. We had reservations for the 26th, but have now cancelled.
Matthews is a go-to favorite for dinner in Aruba. It was once an unknown, but now more people are finding this gem. So make reservations. The location is directly on Eagle beach. There are several tables where you can enjoy the sea and relax with the sound of the surf. Tuesday is rib night which always attracts a large crowd. My favorite are their shrimp dishes. Extra large, fresh and prepared to savior. Go early during your stay. You’ll want to return before your departure. ENJOY
The food and service here was amazing. I would recommend anyone to go eat there. Prices are reasonable also. Definitely would come again to eat here.
I thought this was a beautiful romantic restaurant.mit was in a dingy hotel. It was their hotel restaurant on the beach. No atmosphere. Disappointed
Food is great. Setting is amazing with waves crashing.
The shrimp dishes are extraordinary. Jumbo shrimps perfectly prepared.
Other dishes are equally good, but the shrimp are the fav.
Excellent food and drink directly oceanfront. Sun can be a problem for some right before sunset. Would definitely return.
Its also nice to sit on the bar and enjoi a few drinks.
Average. Wouldn’t rush back but for the location
Relaxing evening and a great start to a warm vacation!
Food was very good. The view was lovely. Service could be improved.
We were a party of 7. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The special grouper and the grouper on the menu were great hits.
Doreen was a wonderful server.
We are coming back to dine next week and are going to ask to be seated st one of her tables.
This was our first time at Matthew’s but will not be our last. We have been going to Aruba for over 15 years and had never been to Matthew’s. There were 6 of us and everyone loved the food and drinks. The service was great and the ambiance was wonderful. Would definitely recommend Matthew and will surely be going next year.
There is no other way to describe our experience other than utterly amazing !!! First we would like to thank Angelo and Humphries for the absolute best service we had during our entire stay on the island . We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and everyone made us feel special. The food was possibly the best meal I have ever had . Thank you again everyone at Matthews for the wonderful evening and we will be back again.
