Typically very good have gone many times. This year might have been an off night while no wait to sit took a while for a waiter to come over. Food was good gor 3 of 4 but needs some new offerings. I typically like oniin soup and grouper botb were just good. Maybe next year will improve.

This was definitely one of our favorites. The almond crusted grouper was awesome. Our waitress, Ranskin was sweet and attentive. One word of advice, you MUST only go here after sun down or the flies will kill your meal. Trust me on this, not a place for early dinner I don't care if the early bird special is buy one... More

Went Dec. 22nd, 2014 and were very disappointed to learn the famous large and outstanding salad was eliminated. The prices jumped and the only salad available were either a Caesar or Wedge salad. How unappealing. Paying more and getting less caused us... More

We were here with a large group, had a limited menu but that helped to make the choice easier. Absolutely outstanding food! I had the Caesar Salad for 1 which was half the size as the one at La Tratorria's that was for 8 people. The coconut shrimp, OMG the best I've ever had, huge, cooked to perfection. The chocolate...

I am not sure why this restaurant is not the highest rated on the island. The service is great and the food even better. They do not skimp on the food and it is very tasty. The coconut shrimp are so good I could go back and eat them every night, the almond crusted fish my wife had was just... More

I went with my family last night. Drink: creme brûlée martini. Absolutely delicious and tasted just like a creme brûlée Appetizer: bang bang shrimp. Super tasty Dinner: burgerloin. Best meal I've ever had. Maybe because I'm a bernaise enthusiast and got a side of bernaise to dip it in along with it being covered in it. My side dish was... More

We have been eating at Madam Janette since it opened. We usually go twice when we are in Aruba. We make our reservations before we come down Well worth the visit

Ok. Packed restaurant. Definitely an island hot spot. A Midwest festival looking beer tent to eat dinner under. 39 bucks gets you driy and over coked 4 oz lobster tail, 4 oz steak, and some nasty shrimp. Decent champaign. We had some 120 dollar a bottle French brut. Waited 20 minutes for our server before ordering anything. Asked for a... More
