I ordered a skirt steak medium well. When it came there were 2 tiny pieces while the people next to me got way bigger pieces. Almost double the size. I asked for a new plate because I needed more food and it was also cooked...More

Bar none the best restaurant on the island- atmosphere and food. Their steak will rival both of the better known steak houses on the island, menu is awesome, and the atmosphere is incredible. Service is great- don't change a thing!

Food was superb, but unfortunately the wait staff were very inattentive for a restaurant of this caliber. Hoping it was just an off night and they were understaffed. Presentation and taste of food was top notch.

You simply cannot visit Aruba and not go to Madame Jeannette's! The ambiance, staff, and food are just amazing. You will not be disappointed. I had the Steak a la Mafia, and it was magnificent! So go, sit back, relax and enjoy, and forget about...More

Seated at 7:30, waited 45 mins for drinks, though we asked the server three times when we’d be getting them. Nothing fancy, just soda, wine and beer....what could possibly be the delay? I’ll tell you....the lackadaisical attitude of the staff, and the I-am-so-famous arrogance of...More

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon. The atmosphere is very romantic. It’s outdoor seating under lit up trees and a guitar player. The staff was very nice. The old butcher steak was amazing. Overall the food was very good. For dessert we...More

This year is their 20th anniversary of being open. We remember when they had a much smaller dining area than they have today. The food was great then and it's still great now. They have a extensive menu with enough choices to eat there several...More

Everyone tells you Madams Janette’s is a must when you mention Aruba. I get the appeal. It’s mostly outdoors, and has a unique island vibe. We went for an early dinner, and were seated right away. Our waitress was lovely, and the service was great....More

I recommend reservations. It’s a large busy restaurant and it wouldn’t surprise me if it filled up on certain nights. It’s also isolated off the min drag and will require a cab ride to get there.
