I must say, for the prices they charge, or for any price for that matter, the service was atrocious. For starters, it took 10 minutes to get a drink menu, and then another 20 minutes to get our drinks! This was with two people working our table mind you. Next, I ordered a steak with a side of rice, but... More

We went there on the recommendation of our local friend Ivan. It's tricky to find but well worth it. We sat in the outside patio area but is felt more like being in a tropical hide away. Divi trees and lantern lighting give it a nice vibe. Entree's run between $30 - $50 (US$) but the portions were large and... More

MUCH bigger than you'd first think, and I really suggest getting a table in the patio. It's a gravel patio, but lovely, big trees provide cover and ambiance.

We were in Aruba August 21st through August 28th, 2016 and we ate twice at Madame Janette. It was mine and my wife's at least 15th time in eating at the restaurant and I have never, ever had anything but an outstanding meal there. I always get the almond crusted grouper and so does my wife. We were there with... More

We enjoy the food and hospitality every time. Very nice and surprising setting when you get past the dark parking area. Its a little difficult to find after dark.The prices are a little expensive but the quality of the food shines through.

When we arrived at Madam Janette in Eagle Beach, we were in for a surprise, The restaurant we thought we were going to was no where to be found. The place we did dine at, was a delight all throughout with a possible exception of the humidity and heat, which any outdoor restaurant must battle when in a tropical island... More

I loved the atmosphere and the food was excellent. The lobster ravioli were to die for. I also had mahi-mahi with risotto and I loved every bite. The service was good.

Always on our list of places to eat while in Aruba. Unless you have a huge appetite the portions are enormous. I had the schnitzel and it was hanging over the plate. The Bang Bang is great my wife and I always share it. Throw in the lice music and you have a night to remember.

The reviews that this restaurant has been given were right. The food and service we experienced were no less than spectacular. Our waitress Suzzy was very accommodating and attentive along with...
