I've eaten at Madame Janette at least 15 times in the past 10 years. It is my favorite place to eat on the island. They have a tremendous menu, including some great beef choices. The portions are generous to say the least, so be prepared to bring leftovers home. They have a full bar, including the normal selection of island... More

it became one of my favorite restaurants in the world. The environment is welcoming, the staff is friendly and the menu is fantastic. I ordered a kind of food I'm not used to because I wanted to try. I didn't like it so I didn't eat it. They noticed and didn't charge me for it. Also we tasted a German... More

Several people recommended Madam Janette to us and it was well worth the trip. To start my husband had the bang bang shrimp and I had the wedge salad, both tasted great! Even the bread that comes with your meal was delightful. For my main I went for the Jumbo Shrimp “Coco di Rasta”, the portion was huge and there... More

Food was good and staff was very attentive. Started raining while we were there and the staff was very quick to get people moved and accommodate everyone. We had the bang bang shrimp, ceviche, and the fish of the day. We usually share everything and they divided the entree for us which is always a nice touch. Ceviche could have... More

Long overdue review. Just returned from my second visit to Aruba in 7 months, and this restaurant still stands out as our favorite place. The atmosphere, service, and most of all quality of food is superior. My wife and I shared the Bang Bang Shrimp to start. It was so delicious and such a big portion, I had to ask... More

Hopefully it was a bad night , but the food was cold even after being sent back. The manager did compensate with a free dinner but to be honest with all the great food on the island I don't think we will go back.

Food was excellent, service was good. Atmosphere just ok. We were near the edge of the canopy and there were a lot of flies. I also found the seats extremely uncomfortable

We loved this restaurant! The food was awesome. Best crab cakes ever. The staff was super nice and attentive without being overly bothersome. We will come here every time we visit the island. Do make a reservation as they are busy.

My husband and I have been eating at Madame Janette's since it opened. In the early years we would eat here more than once during our stay. I don't mind paying the higher prices for food in Aruba when the food and service are good. However, neither were good last year, and as we plan our next extended stay in... More
