Our favourite places to eat. Enjoy awesome food and stunning decor.
Café Matisse
Our number one in Nassau
Step out of the Bahamas and into little Italy at Café Matisse, named for the artists’ prints and impressions dotted around the restaurant. Specialising in homemade pasta, seafood, real Italian pizza and delicious desserts, the menu changes every three months so there’s always a new treat to try. Eat al fresco in the courtyard or on the veranda and sample a wide range of fine wines while enjoying dishes like crab, lobster and rack of lamb. A quiet retreat from the bustle of downtown Nassau.
