We have been to Madame Janette's for many years and was very disappointed when we looked at the menu this time only to find out that escargot was no longer on the menu. I ordered the grouper and it was excellent and on other note the BEST au gratin potatoes I had ever tasted. The atmosphere is excellent.

Madame Janette's came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. My wife had fish and I had steak. We both enjoyed our meals. This is a must go to restaurant in Aruba.

We had dinner here for my cousins 40th birthday dinner. The place is beautiful, the service was great and the dinner was delicious. Portions are big so be prepared to eat. Lovely dinner music as well. I highly recommend!

Love the ambiance of this place. Like being in someone's backyard for a party. Nice live music, but not overpowering. We had reservations, but it wasn't terribly crowded when we were there. During the busy season, I imagine reservations are a must. Food was all really good. Some unique offerings and everyone in my group seemed to enjoy their meals.... More

Outstanding food service and atmosphere try the Almond Grouper and schnitzel they can't do enough for you and if it is a special occasion let them know ahead of time they really do it right.

Umm first of all I've gained 10 pounds since my wedding because of all the marvelous restaurants my husband and I went to in Aruba . Our parents recommended madame Janette's as a must try. We stayed at an all inclusive for 7 nights and we were pretty much tired of eating the same food over and over. Don't make... More

Can't beat the almond grouper. Too bad our waitress was not very friendly, we tried to be. No fault of chief or other ancillary wait staff All in all a good meal at a reasonable price. Had not been back for the last 5 years because our last visit was disappointing. Will try again next year. Dinner really is best... More

The staff was very friendly and provided perfect service. The dinner was nice portions and delicious. Will be back to try some of the other offerings that sounded good. Go after dark because it is hot when the sun is up. Fans above some of the tables help with the heat.

We enjoyed this place and all of the locals say it's a must for dinner if you are on the Island. The schnitzel was delicious and my husband and I split it and had many drinks, so a fun night to be had here. Lots of tourists, but the Aruba is so small, that's what it's all about... I'd go... More

This restaurant was recommended to me and I went there to celebrate my birthday while in Aruba. The atmosphere is very inviting, they had 80's music playing, and later in the evening live music. I highly recommend the grouper - the best. The staff and especially the waitress (sorry I forget her name) were amazing and I had a great... More
