The service was good, food was great, and the location can't be beat. Great ocean view while you dine:)

This is almost a "toes in the sand" kind of thing as you are right on the beach. The food is excellent and service is friendly and Aruban, meaning no one is in a hurry to take your order and the wait is rather long for the food to arrive. However, when it arrives you will know why it took so long to cook and present. It was wonderful. Great place with a good price.

Matthew's is a restaurant at Casa del Mar / Aruba Beach Club, in the low rise hotel area. The location and view are great. Many tables have a view of the Caribbean, across the beach, and sunsets are beautiful. I'm giving it a 5 for the views, the decor, the good food and the OK service. We've been coming here many times over the years, and we keep coming back. There's nothing like sitting in the open air, listening to the waves break on the shore, and enjoying a nice meal experience. Enjoyed the grouper with melted gouda cheese (an Aruba-Dutch touch). Pina Colada Shrimp is an excellent dinner choice as well.

Stopped in for a late lunch - just in time for happy hour at 4pm. Happy hour is 2 for 1 drinks. Had the B.L.A.T sandwich which was very tasty on a nice sour dough bread. My husband opted for the Matthew's chicken sandwich. Both came with the Matthew's mayo - a spiced up mayo but not spicy. Loved the Matthew's mayo. Great spot to stop in for a quick bite to eat - located at the Casa del Mar resort right next to Bucuti & Tara.

We went to Matthew's because we were staying closeby and it had been recommended. We were seated right away and drinks were served. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was nice but the food was only okay. I had grouper and my husband had a chicken dish; neither was extraordinary. We much preferred Elliots and even Pizza Bob's, both walking distance from Matthews.
