When a first timer enters Madame Janette's they are surprised by the open atmosphere. You are seated in the backyard of the restaurant, where you can sit back and relax while enjoying one of the best meals on the island. The wines were delish as was the food. We were a party of 6 and our order consisted of soups, salads, appetizers, main courses and desserts! We all had a little bite of each others selections and each was tastier and more enjoyable that the next! My favorite of the evening was the Dutch loin of pork, pounded, with the au gratin potatoes. But everything was just wonderful!
One of the best on the Island! NOT to be missed!

2nd year in a row we have dined here and it was just as good an experience. Suzanne and Carolyn were excellent servers (see I mentioned y'all as promised!) and lots of fun. The place is so pretty and tropical. The live music is wonderful. Fun songs and just loud enough to be heard without being overwhelming.

I will admit the first dish I ordered I didn't enjoy the flavors. When they noticed I wasn't eating it they immediately insisted on bringing me something else. Which was delicious!

Madame Janettes is a must do for dining when in Aruba

This was our very favorite dining experience in Aruba. We selected it as our "go back to" place for our final night on vacatio but it was a Sunday and they were closed. The service was service was excellent and the food was wonderful. most of the other places we ate at we're within walking distance from our hotel. This was not but worth the taxi fare!

Went there last week, it was our first time. The food was great and the place had a nice vibe to it. The place is good size, much bigger than what we were expecting. It was a Monday night when we were there and the place was very busy, recommend a reservation be made or you might not get a table, especially during the height of the season. Looking forward to going back.

Our fourth year of visiting Mme Jeanette and this time it was a disappointment. Food was a usual good but service was definitely lacking. Seems like we had a trainee waitress who looked rather disinterested in our wishes, constantly kept looking around and talking to other servers while taking our order. Looks like we will pause for a few years before going there again.
