“Food and Service were great- but too hot to eat!”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

The atmosphere, service, and food were excellent but it was so hot in the restaurant that we didn't even want to eat our meal. We were traveling with kids so we made our reservation for 6:30 pm. Our food literally came out in 5 minutes! I didn't even know how they had time to cook my husband's steak! They do have fans- but we weren't lucky enough to be close to one. So...if it is a humid day in Aruba - I would pass on this location or be sure to ask for a table near a fan when making your reservation.

“Atomosphere and Food...SPECTACULAR”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

We had many friends recommend this restaurant to us, so we decided to check it out ourselves. It is located off the beaten path a bit, but all cab drivers know this place. It is like you are sitting in someone's backyard. There are hanging lights, trees with lights wrapped around the trunk, and there was a gentleman playing the guitar and singing the night we went. Our waiter was great, he never rushed us, allowed us to enjoy each course of the meal and made great recommendations. I had the "gianni versace" which was out of this world!! A filet mignon topped with spinach, portobello mushrooms and a lobster medallion. I was so angry I couldn't finish it because I was so full!! My boyfriend had a delicious rack of lamb. We will definitely return to this place on our next trip.

“AMAZING”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

Madame Janette's was recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed ! The food and service were excellent. My husband is still talking about his steak! (He said it was the best he ever had) and my chicken was perfect! We also received a free dessert since we were there on our honeymoon!
