Went to Madame Janette and food was amazing, Almond Grouper(house specialty). Table service was very good except for getting a glass of wine(twice). Seemed to take forever from bar. Little expensive but worth it. Incredible food.

This was my second time coming to Madame Janettes and I love it. The food is great and everyone enjoys it. Sit in this backyard type setting under lights. Great food and great drinks!

Make sure that at least one or two nights during your stay, you wander away from the high rise or low rise areas and head inland to some of the fine restaurants away from the beach. Madame Janette is one of our top choices in this category, providing dining under a canopy of local trees and trellises. The food is... More

Having dined at this restaurant twice before and being totally pleased, have to report this dining experience was a bit different. The food and service was as in the past, exceptional. However, after using a charge card that evening, was informed the next day that there was an attempt to use my charge number for a $2,000 purchase in South... More

It’s hard to pick a favorite with so many great dining options around Aruba, but this place was definitely at the top of our list. We requested a dinner reservation for 6:30 about a month in advance and all was in order upon arrival. We didn’t ask for any particular seating, just a reservation. I was happy with our table...

In the twelve years we have been visiting Aruba, this used to be one of our favorite restaurants. No longer. Last night's visit with a party of 7 was substandard. We were one of the first groups seated at 5:30 PM and our cocktails were not served until 6:05, even with some prompting of the waitress. Once served, the drinks... More

We have been coming to Aruba for many years and come here every year. Fabulous setting but very disappointed this year. The service was extremely slow. I always have the lobster ravioli but this time is was cold and very little lobster. The bang bang shrimp was delicious as always as were the crab cakes. Main dishes were good. If... More

Our reservations were at 9 and the place was crowded. We were seated immediately and had great, friendly service. The food was presented nicely. I had an almond grouper that was excellent. The salads were fresh. Even though they don't have a 'kids menu' they were very accommodating. Highly recommend !!!
