My family and I could not get a reservation here last year so I was sure to get one this year during our trip to Aruba. This restaurant is so over rated. The food was of average quality, large portions, and very average service. I wouldn't come again. Just nothing special about it at all....

Get reservations if you want to go, get them early before you arrive on the island. A great open air dinning area out of the Aruba winds but that brings some small creatures. The place is packed but has exception food. Sea Bass to Lamb specials with a appetizer menu to die for. Service is steady and above that of... More

In the many years we have been visiting Aruba, my wife and I had never been to Madame Jeannette. We finally made it this year but it just doesn't meet the hype. First of all-too big and much too slow with service. Second-food was good but not spectacular as everyone seems to think it is. Third- there are feral cats... More

Great spot here that's just a bit out of the way. Food and service is top notch. Solid beer selection. My wife had the sea bass and it was very tasty. I had a rib eye special that was extremely tasty. Never disappointed here. Awesome atmosphere.

During our recent visit, we had dinner twice at Madame Janette. It is one of our favorite restaurants. My husband and I always order the almond crusted grouper which is delicious. My brother loves their schnitzel entrees. Only downside are their vegetables...creamed spinach is very salty, and too many starchy choices. Would be nice to have some plain vegetable choices...

This restaurant lives up to its expectation and reviews. It is out of the way - in a rural residential area but worth the trip - NOTE: make reservations as soon as you are able .. can do so online! It is surprisingly big inside. The cocktails were some of my favorites from the entire trip to Aruba. Will definitely... More

We had an excellent dinner by more than well-trained staff. The dessert, with their pumpkin seed icecream is phenomenal.

I had been to this restaurant 5 years ago and thought the food was very good. It has been recommended by everyone I know who visits Aruba. We asked the taxi driver if it was still ne of the best restaurants on the island and he said it had gone downhill. We decided to go when our hotel said it... More
