Every person that I spoke with said that we needed to go to Madame Janette's, and they were right!! wow, was this ever amazing. I am not a foodie by any stretch but I can tell you that I did not want my meal to end. I had the sea Bass and Craig had the beef tenderloin. The waiter did... More

We had dinner the other night here. It was as good as ever. We went with another couple and they both had special requests on some of the menu items(IT WAS NO PROBLEM). I just don't know why there are the negative reviews.it is our special place

We went to Madame Janette's on Christmas night. I had made our reservation in October and we were so looking forward to the most delicious meal of our trip. However, it rained right before our reservation time and the restaurant seemed ill-equipped to deal with the outdoor reservations. We had to wait an hour and our 8 year old son... More

Took my family of 6 there for a nice dinner. They have a very good selection including fish, steaks, and chicken. They also serve a great schnitzel that is the size of a large plate. If you are a beer connoisseur, they have a huge selection of European beers to try. They also have plenty of good wines The place... More

This restaurant is one of the top restaurants in the Caribbean. I have never had a bad meal here. It is a great couples place it is extremely romantic. You sit outside with twinkling light all around and live soft music playing. Great steaks and fish. They are noted for their Almond Grouper. Need a cab to get here

Great ambiance. Great food. Great service. All the food was beautiful and tasty. Try the sangria and expresso martini. About 5 min from main hotel zone.

Madame Janette's Restaurant is hidden away and reservations are strongly urged for this very busy "word of mouth" favorite restaurant on the island. Portions are huge and beautifully presented. The staff never misses a beat with their great, friendly service.

Hands down my husband's favorite dinner of the week. I had the ceviche to start & lobster ravioli for my meal- both delicious! The atmosphere was so relax & the 2 man band (vocals/guitar) were the perfect vibe. The service staff was okay, but for me it was the beer steward who made my night! Super helpful, really knew his...

This was our third time at Madame Janette's. Never ceases to amaze with the quality of food and service. My wife had the coconut shrimp which were frantastic and I had the schnitzel which was as good as anything in Europe. Always a must on our list when we come to Aruba

I have to say that this has been my favorite meal so far in Aruba. We've also fined at Flying Fishbone which fell short of my expectations. Our server at Madame Janette's was Suzi and she was incredibly sweet and very knowledgeable of the menu. Her recommendations were spot on. We started with the bang bang shrimp and wedge salad....
