This used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Aruba, but the past couple of years, no so much. I believe that they are under new ownership and neither the food nor the service is as good as in the past.

Prior to my trip to Aruba Madame Jeanette's was recommended by two people. It did not disappoint. Everyone's food was great and the service was excellent. One of the best restaurants on our trip.

I love Madame Janette's. I have been to Aruba 3 times and have never left without getting dinner here. The atmosphere is great with fun outdoor seating, string lights and live music. The food is equally good with a huge beer list. This a must!
