The potato and leak soup was good, the lobster ravioli was nothing special and cost twice as much as the soup.

Surf and turf, the lobster part was better than expected, but the steak was only average.

If you want something of this style I suggest Papiamiento is better

wine list was disappointing, no Chile wines and price was above the quality.

ALWAYS a "MUST" eat at restaurant when we visit...love the food and atmosphere. You MUST make reservations as it can be quite a wait if you do not have one, but hey, it is worth the wait and at least they take reservations. Have NEVER been disappointed.

I hae been to Madame Janettes about 15 times in the past several years and it has always been our favorite restaurant. During our last previous trip, we had several problems with the food being overooked or lukewarm and the manager gave us a discount and said to let him know when we were coming back again and he would make sure everything is perfect. Before this latest trip, I sent him an e-mail, telling him when our reservations were scheduled (party of 11). When I arrived, the hostess said he was no longer at the restaurant but she knew that our last visit was not satisfactory. She seated us promptly and the waiter was attentive in the very beginning. After the drinks were served, it took a long time for our waiter to come back to take our orders and serve our meals. We had to flag him down a couple of times to get our orders and to get our bill. The food was excellent but the service was terrible. Perhaps the waiter was overburdened with tables and a taxi driver told us that their wait staff turns over frequently and that is probably the reason for the poor service. We will be going back to Aruba again in a few months and, for the first time, we will probably not be going to Madame Janettes. Perhaps we will try again in the future and I hope they get the service problems corrected.

We have dined at Madame Janette in past years but heard mixed reviews in 2012.

We decided to return to Madame Janette in 2013 and had a great dining experience. We enjoyed pork tenderloin and shrimp dishes. The service was great and the food superb.

We highly recommend Madame Janette in Aruba.
