We have been enjoying Madame Janette for 10 years. As frequent visitors to Aruba we have had the opportunity to try many restaurants and this is our favorite of all! The Almond Grouper and the Versace Filet with Lobster are among our favorite dishes and you can count on having leftovers. For side dishes, don't miss the Potatoes AuGratin and the creamed spinach served with the almond grouper. They always have delicious specials and very friendly staff. Dining is outdoors on the porch or in the garden under gazebos, a canopy, or the trees and the atmosphere is lovely, romantic, and also perfect for dining with the family or friends. If you are visiting Aruba, don't miss dinner here. In fact, go at the beginning of your stay because you will most likely want to go back before you leave!

Everyone told us that if your in Aruba you have to try Madame Janettes. It was definitely a unique atmosphere,kind of outdoors with a wood awning over the dining area and a pebble floor. Unfortunately, we ordered the pork tenderloin and duck breast, which were not very fresh and consequently, we did not have the best dining experience there. Although, my own sister swears that their seafood dishes are outstanding.

The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was great! Two meals and drinks will cost you $100 but it was worth every penny. My wife and I had the Surf & Turf and it was terrific. My wife and I could not finish our entire meal because of the portions. We stuffed ourselves until we couldn't eat another bite.

If you're looking for the best food in Aruba, look no further than Madame Janette. It's a bit pricey but the atmoshpere is wonderful and the food was truly the best we have ever had anywhere! It was still cheaper to eat at Madame Janette than the restaurants in the resort and Madame Janette had far, far better food.

After reading the Traveler Reviews on TripAdvisor, I cancelled our reservations at this restaurant. A couple we met while on vacation invited us to join them for dinner at Madame Janettes. This was the best meal we had on Aruba. I had the almond crusted grouper, white asparagus and their signature au gratin potatotoes. The food was excellent and the fish portion was big enough for two. Our new friends raved about the surf and turf, the steaks were expertly grilled to perfection. My husband had marinated grouper and enjoyed his very tasty fresh fish meal. The creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin are out of this world. Unfortunately, we were too full to enjoy dessert. Excellent food service and atmosphere. We will return to this restaurant on our next trip to Aruba.
