Island dining at its finest

Arriving in early evening, our party was seated beneath a palm tree in the outdoor courtyard and the breeze was nicely muted by the surrounding fencing. My family began with the Bang Bang Shrimp and they were tasty - full of carribean flavor. Then came the Beef Tournedos and Butcher's Steak - each... read more

If you have never been, you must go. Their almond crusted grouper is the best of the best. Love this place. Nothing is bad; all is exceptional.

Great food, attentive service and wonderful atmosphere! This was our first visit to Madame Janette, but it definitely won't be our last. Fantastic beer selection, extensive wine list and an eclectic menu. Highly recommend the Tenderloin Gianni Versace and the almond crusted grouper.

The atmosphere was very calm and romantic. The salmon was delicious! I will definitely be going back again. It was a little hard to find, but nothing that a cabbie can't handle.

We came to Madame Janette's after two people recommended it to us. It was our first time in Aruba and went for dinner on our last night. As every review says, the portions are HUGE and quality cannot be beat - the value is certainly there. I had the salmon with hollandaise, spinach, and cheese along with the potatoes and... More

Madame Janette Restuarant is a short ride from the high-rise hotels and located at 37 Cunucu Abao near Eagle Beach in Aruba. The restaurant is quite large and offers outdoor, courtyard dining. We had not frequented this restaurant for awhile and decided to give it another try. It offers primarily Caribbean and has a large menu from which to choose... More

We eat here every year and still have not had a bad experience. We arrived an hour early before are reservation time ???? The place was busy but the lovely hostesses... More

Madame Janette is all ways our favorite restaurant when we go to Aruba. When we were there in Feb, I had the Salmon Florentine, it was fabulous.

If you are in Aruba you have to go to Madame Janette. The food was excellent. This is truly a 5 star in Aruba. The wait staff was very attentive and the food arrived on time. We talked to another couple while we were leaving and they own a restaurant and they even raved over the food, enough said.

Very close to La Cabana and a must try while staying on the island. Atmosphere was excellent and the food was great. There were 9 of us in the party and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the experience! I had the Sea Bass over risotto and thought it had plenty of flavor with a decent sized portion.
