Overall Madame Janette was good. However, when you compare to the other places we dined on Aruba during our Honeymoon (Early-Mid May 2015), it didn't live up to the hype. To give you an idea to where I'm comparing other places we dined at: Barefoot, La Vista, Ruinas Del Mar, Mexicado, Simply Fish, Papiamento. The food was good. I had... More

Best selection of Trappist beer I have ever seen! I had a Westvelteren - which is extremely rare and hard to find. The steak was aged and one of the best I've ever had. I only wish I had room for dessert. 😎

Excellent food and drinks... The ambience is magical and worth the trip! We took 4 young adults and four adults. There was something for everyone including our one who has gluten and lactose issues. Very good.

If you are looking for a local place a little out of the way, head to Madame Janette's. It is basically hidden in a neighborhood, which makes the cab ride there interesting. It has beautiful garden seating. We couldn't get reservations, but only waited long enough to order a beer at the bar. They managed tables and the crowds very... More

We had 2 appetizers (BangBang Shrimp and ??), both tasty and fulfilling. By the time our meals arrived, we were full from the appetizers. Large quantities of food were packaged to go, including appetizers. Everything is LARGE portions. A single desert fed 3 people too!! We will definitely return in the future

We could not wait to return to Madame Janettes. This is one of the best restaurants on Aruba. The meals are superb and the portions are huge! We were a party of ten and when the food was served, all the plates were hot and delicious! The Almond Grouper, Rack of Lamb and Steak were exceptional. For dessert we had... More

Wonderful food and atmosphere. Almond encrusted grouper was great. Wouldn't recommend the creamed spinach - get the potatoes instead, much better.

My husband went to Madame Janette for the first time last week during our vacation in Aruba. It really is an oasis of great quality food, wonderful service, a beautiful atmosphere and most importantly...an amazing beer selection (for Aruba). Let me first say that my husband and I are craft beer drinkers...IPA's mostly but lots of others. When you are... More
