Every time I go to Cafe Matisse I am absolutely blown away by their excellent service, incomparable food, and beautiful atmosphere. Modeled after one of my favourite artists, I highly recommend sitting outside during an intimate dinner or inside for lunch with friends and family. There will never be enough words to describe the food - the calamari with chili jam, pumpkin ravioli, spinach gnocchi - everything is good, and of course the ginger lemonade gets an honorable mention as being the best drink (especially with a splash of grey goose).

Yes, it is pricey, but you pay for the quality of service and food you get. Always worth it in the end, if you ask me!

This was my third time within the last year that I have had the pleasure to dine at Cafe Matisse and felt it was so great each and ever time that it deserves recognition. The ambiance,staff and food and always been consistently awesome each and every time.

We were on a Royal Caribbean Cruise and were looking to experience a fine dining restaurant for lunch. I called American Express concierge and they made us a reservation. We were seated outside at a nice table. The outdoor patio is filled with tropical plants and flowers and so comfortable. The menus choices were very good. We both ordered pasta dishes. My girlfriend said that the gnocchi was the best she has ever eaten. The wine choices by the glass were also excellent. This is a must if you travel to Nassau. It's also walking distance to everything in downtown.

Have eaten here many times and have never had a bad experience. Location is downtown and in the winter dining in the enclosed courtyard is wonderful. Food is very consistent and quite reasonable (by Bahamas standards) however what separates Matisse from so many other places in Nassau is the service which is always excellent.

Be sure to book for dinner but dress casual.

Tip. Save room for the Tiramisu.

Tip 2. Get a taxi, don't walk back to your hotel after dark.
