Best dinner on Aruba

I say it's the best because we loved it so much the first time, we made another reservation on our way out. The lobster cappuccino starter was amazing.

We went with another couple and shared some of the food, everything we had was delicious and well prepared. The portions are so large the leftovers were enough for 2 lunches for each of us.

What's there to say other than potentially best restaurant on island ! Visit it at least twice on every trip which is 3 times a year. Can't lose at this establishment !

Everyone we talked to before getting to Aruba and then when we got there, talked about Madame Janette's. Service was wonderful and the meal was delicious as well.

This was our first time at Madame Janette's. We have been to countless other restaurants on the island and so far nothing quite compares to the food, service and price of Madame Janette's.

Food soaked in sauces. Flies everywhere and on our food. Looks out to warehouses. Stay away! Paid the bill out of courtesy, spoke to manager and left for another restaurant.

I would suggest making reservations ahead of time as the restaurant was quite full. We shared the crab cakes for an appetizer. We had the surf and turf and salmon florentine for entrees and shared the chocolate soufflé with pumpkin seed ice cream. Everything we had was incredibly delicious.
