Took my family of 6 there for a nice dinner. They have a very good selection including fish, steaks, and chicken. They also serve a great schnitzel that is the size of a large plate. If you are a beer connoisseur, they have a huge selection of European beers to try. They also have plenty of good wines The place... More

This restaurant is one of the top restaurants in the Caribbean. I have never had a bad meal here. It is a great couples place it is extremely romantic. You sit outside with twinkling light all around and live soft music playing. Great steaks and fish. They are noted for their Almond Grouper. Need a cab to get here

Great ambiance. Great food. Great service. All the food was beautiful and tasty. Try the sangria and expresso martini. About 5 min from main hotel zone.

Madame Janette's Restaurant is hidden away and reservations are strongly urged for this very busy "word of mouth" favorite restaurant on the island. Portions are huge and beautifully presented. The staff never misses a beat with their great, friendly service.

Hands down my husband's favorite dinner of the week. I had the ceviche to start & lobster ravioli for my meal- both delicious! The atmosphere was so relax & the 2 man band (vocals/guitar) were the perfect vibe. The service staff was okay, but for me it was the beer steward who made my night! Super helpful, really knew his...

This was our third time at Madame Janette's. Never ceases to amaze with the quality of food and service. My wife had the coconut shrimp which were frantastic and I had the schnitzel which was as good as anything in Europe. Always a must on our list when we come to Aruba

I have to say that this has been my favorite meal so far in Aruba. We've also fined at Flying Fishbone which fell short of my expectations. Our server at Madame Janette's was Suzi and she was incredibly sweet and very knowledgeable of the menu. Her recommendations were spot on. We started with the bang bang shrimp and wedge salad....

Wonderful menu and the portions were generous. The Chilean seabass was delicious and very filling. Charming ambiance in a garden inspired surrounding.

A few years back my wife and I came here and was totally not impressed. I am happy we decided to come back with a group of friends as it was 1000% better. For seafood lovers, the Bang Bang shrimp was really good. The steaks were grilled perfectly and everyone was absolutely stuffed at the end of the meal. So... More
