We were seated outside for a 7 pm reservation where an 80's soundtrack played loudly making me feel completely distracted and out of touch with the place I was at. I don't know maybe it is me, but I don't go out to dinner on vacation and expect to shout at my husband across the table while the soundtrack to... More

This is one of the best. Location is interesting off the beaten path, But worth getting to. The dining atmosphere is great. The menu large and diverse. Everyone in my party loved their meals. We did have one issue with something being tough. I couldn't believe what came next. The waiter said oh no, a new dish was decided on,... More

we were recommended to go and eat so we did on our first night. Our food was out in 5 min, which to me that says they are precooked. It was ok, but I will not recommend to anyone to go there.

This restaurant was highly rated so we decided to eat there. The food was somewhere between average and very good. I didn't think this venue should be rated as high as it was. The one big problem with this venue is that it can get very hot inside and that make your experience very uncomfortable.

We came back to Madame Jeanette's after last years visit. We brought our friends that were traveling with us. The night was beautiful, thought a storm was conning but never did. They were willing to put us in covered area but we were fine. It was nice to be away from the beach scene fir a while. It's like being... More

The mystery surrounding the reservation process leads one to expect an outstanding dining experience. Not so. The service was poor, the food was mediocre at best and the drinks were only okay. We had their "claim to fame" dishes were so-so. The almond crusted grouper was very dry and the Schnitzel Vienna Style was also very dry. Very dirty martinis... More

Our group of four really enjoyed this restaurant. Menu is very varied with something for everyone. service was terrific. Never had to "search" for our waitress. Some of the dish portions was way to large of the normal appetite esp the schnitzel items. suggest splitting any schnitzel dish and also splitting the salads. Cocktails were good, wine list is terrific.

We found this out-of-the-way gem because Fodor's recommended it as a Fodor's choice restaurant, and we were not disappointed. In fact, we loved everything about our evening there. The atmosphere was excellent. The restaurant is essentially an outdoor patio although parts are covered; as it happened we sat under the stars and enjoyed the warm breeze. There was a super... More

This was by far our best meal in Aruba. The service is excellent. Janice and Ellen were super friendly and kept checking on us (refilling beverages, taking photos, etc). The food was delicious. We both had steak and the mashed potatoes were so good. If you only have one meal in Aruba, you must go to Madam Janette!! The meal... More

It really feels like you're in a peaceful backyard with some of the greatest service and food you've been waiting for. The Pina-coladas are excellent. The live guitarist and singer make the entire experience very romantic. Go during sunset to really enjoy the romantic atmosphere.
