This is a difficult review because the food here was actually quite tasty for the most part. The problem was the temperature, which I can't blame the restaurant for, but I can blame the restaurant for not having an adequate way to keep customers cool. We arrived after years of being told we HAD to eat there. In defense of... More

I loved the ambiance of Madame Janette's, great beer selection and the food was outstanding.. However, our waitress brought the review from a 5 star to a 4 star - she was extremely slow, forgot our appetizer, didn't even ask us how our food was or if it was prepared well, offered us another glass of beer AFTER we finished...

We've been going to Aruba for 9 years now and this is the restaurant we will NEVER miss going to on each of our visits! As usual, the food was exquisite and the service was perfect, not to mention the atmosphere! Did I mention you eat under the stars in most of the locations? Portions are huge, (we couldn't finish...

Madame Janettes was highly rated & recommended so we were anxious to try it. We did enjoy the food & the atmosphere, but overall it wasn't one of our top choices. And if I was picking places for our next trip to Aruba, I'm not sure it would make the list. I didn't think it was as amazing/special as some... More

I have read many great reviews of this must go to establishment and all are true. Great staff willing to help, graciously there but not in your face. Agnes was a wonderful waitress, efficient and knowledgeable. I had the Argentinian beef which was some of best Beef I've ever had. My wife had the almond Grouper and loved it. Both... More

I'm not a "foodie" by any stretch of the imagination, but I was so impressed with the presentation of the food and the yumminess of it. This is a must when visiting Aruba!

My wife and I just completed a week stay in Aruba and dined at 5 different restaurants. Madame Janette was my wife's favorite meal. My food was also excellent, but not the best I had during the week. Service was fine, decent wine list and a varied menu. Our seating location lacked air circulation and thus it was a bit... More
