We tried for years to get into this restaurant. We finally did and looked forward to it! A Disappointment. ! Drinks are watered down! The description of the preparation was not accurate. My dinner was just average. My husband also agreed. All the flavors are Mushed together on one plate. I could not enjoy all the preparations as presented. Not... More

I am very happy we tried Madame Jeanette during this visit. The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely and the service was great. We started with the bang bang shrimp. They were very similar to Bone Fish but MJ's added pineapple which was a great addition. I had the almond crusted grouper and my husband had the skirt steak. The... More

Every year since 2010, we have gone back to Madame Janette. It is a big resturant with a large staff. The food is great and portions are above average. This year they have added a large number of U.S. and European beers. Resrvations are a must, we booked via the website while still in Boston.

Madame Janettes should be on your must do's for dinner. Make reservations as soon as you can as this is on everyone's list. The specials are always full of flavor and do not disappoint.

after many years on the island,I finally ate here. I'm so sorry I didn't do it sooner. Fine dining with a local Caribbean flair. The staff never leaves you once you enter the door. The food is elegant, fresh,and abundant. I will not make the same mistake again, Madam Janette's is on my regular schedule.

Madame Janettes is a $9 can ride from Palm Beach, it is quite a large restaurant but reservations a must. We call before we leave for Aruba. Food is very hard to beat, we have had the grouper almondine and rack of lamb. We often share which means we can have an appetizer salad AND dessert!

Recommended by our cab driver. Great atmosphere outside and in. Def. book a reservation. Outstanding service & phenominal food! Filet and Jumbo shrimp with curry sauce were delish. Wonderful presentation. Beer selection is great with international choices. Worth the money...and honestly, the same you'll spend anywhere else. All the staff is so nice and friendly. Really makes the experience special.

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. The atmosphere is charming.We all had different meals and everyone's was excellent. The service was great and friendly. The island does a lot of lamb and steak dishes, among others.The lamb was awesome. It is a must go to. Can't wait to go back next year. Pricey, but worth... More

This is an iconic Aruban restaurant that seems to be resting on reputation from the past. I had the red snapper special with spinach linguine. It was bland, non descriptor and served in a relatively perfunctory manner. The Blue cheese wedge salad was overpriced and very limited on blue cheese or bacon. The other diners at the table were pleased... More

Dined here with friends in January 2015. The service is wonderful. The outdoor patio seating is nice since the weather in Aruba is great. Dinner portions are large and the food is so good.
