Celebrated my 50th birthday dining at Madame Janette's on December 7, 2015. Food was delicious, service by Suzi and Enrique (I think) was exceptional. A five star experience from beginning to end!

This was our first trip to the Island and it seems like everyone in the world had been to Aruba except for us. Madame Jeanette was a consistent recommendation from all of our friends and family. It did not disappoint and nothing was lost in translation. My Wife had the Pork Schnitzel and I had the Almond-Crusted Grouper. Both were... More

There are no words that do justice to our experience at Madam Janette's. The drinks were great, appetizers & main dish exquisite and dessert could make your head spin. Definitely a must do for anyone visiting this beautiful island!! We were with a large party and traded bites of food and there was nothing on our table that wasn't delicious

Awesome experience. Great atmosphere and food. Great selection of music while dining (nice songs from 60s and 70s). Then live music later in the evening. Highly recommended.

We had the rack of lamb and filet which were perfect however we could have easily split either dish the creamed spinach was not good but the scalloped potatoes were excellent. It was pricey but that was on par for Aruba. The service was excellent and the servers... More

We ate here almost 10 years ago & enjoyed it immensely. The food & service was very good. Plates presented were large portions that I couldn't finish..maybe sharing makes sense here. Terrific meal all around. The only down-side was the smoke wafting in from those sitting outside.

So, while visiting Aruba we had heard MJ's was a must-visit restaurant. With one other couple we made reservations 3 days ahead at the advice of others. As mentioned by others, the place IS located a bit off the beaten path but it was not difficult to find. We were kindly fretted and taken to our table out in the... More

The food and service was top notch! Beautiful setting for a romantic dinner. We all had the almond crusted grouper and it was unbelievable.

Love the setting and the live music, but the food was nothing special. Had the almond grouper and a steak dish that had lobster sauce on top. Both were good.
