From the second we arrived until we left, the experience at Matthews was exceptional. I usually steer clear of resort restaurants, but this one will definitely change your mind! There are so many names I could list, but Allan, Marcos, Eve, Ava, Ana, and many more were so accommodating and so fun to chat with. THey were quick to bring... More

Great food. Better staff. My personal favorites are the burgers and the filet mignon. Great specialty nights (Italian food night, rib night, etc). Many 2 for 1 happy hours in the day. Always fast service. Humphrey at the bar sees me in the morning walking down and immediately has someone go get my coffee which is ready by the time... More

For starters, we ordered a nice drink that I think is the Brazilian version of a mojito. It didn't really have a name that we could tell, but the picture and the waiter's description made it sound...

We enjoyed lunch so much that we returned again for dinner. We had dinner on Italian night and the free tirimisu was very yummy. What a view and the tiki torches were a nice feature.

We didn't have reservations, so we were seated inside the restaurant, but that was just fine. The food was good with a selection of sandwiches and lighter meals for dinner and a few larger meals. The sandwiches and burgers were surprising large and were very tasty (my husband was a little jealous when he tried a few bites of my... More

Four of us stopped in for dinner with no reservation on a Tuesday evening. The pleasant host said it would be a 15 min wait, no problem. We went to the empty bar to wait. A young bartender approached us and took our order, 2 wines, 2 cocktails. Then we waited, and waited and waited for almost 12 min's watching... More
