Madame Janette's always has great food and service. We were there last week with a group of six people. The portions are always on the large side and always delicious! The atmosphere is so unique, it seems like you are dining in someone's back yard.

Went with four other couples, we were easily accommodated in the large, but separated, dining area. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Loved the bang bang shrimp app, enough for two, and the Gianni Versace dinner. Excellent dining experience

One of my 3 or 4 favorite restaurants in Aruba. Have been eating here regularly since they opened in 1999. The food is consistently excellent. The restaurant is open air but, in the evening and with the Aruba breezes, quite comfortable.

Lovely decor outside as you walk up. Had a drink at the bar while waiting for a table. Bartenders were polite and prompt. Walked in without a reservation had a 20 minute wait. Which was perfect timing. Garlic arrives shortly after your seated. We had lobster bisque, crab cake, and lobster ravioli. Skip the soup.. Ravioli was relish. We split... More

This and Papiamento were our two favourite restaurants. The dining area is open air. The servers were very friendly and professional. The grouper and shrimp dishes were excellent. The salad was large and delicious. Even though you won't be hungry, share a dessert; you won't be disappointed.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. It was better when I went 3 years ago. I would recommend it. I just enjoyed the Grouper as well as the Coconut Shrimp.

We have been going to Aruba for many years. In fact I can remember when Madame Janette's first opened. We loved it and it is still one of our favorites. I would like to say what is especially delicious there but I love it all. This includes the atmosphere and the service.

We've been here many times before, and the food does. It disappoint. Service was great--we had a 7:30 reservation, but by the time we left around 9 or 9:30, the place was packed and service might not have been so attentive. The almost crusted grouper is not to be missed!
