This is my first time in Aruba. I made reservations for Madame Jeanette's a couple months ago for last night. However at the pool someone mentioned that the restaurant changed hands and that it wasn't as good as before. We went anyway and boy that that lady wrong. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was top notch and the service... More

Start to finish just perfect. Our waiter Santiago was lovely what a nice guy made our night extra special. It was Valentine's Day it was crowded and the place ran beautifully without a glitch. 7 of us had dinner here and everybody's meals where perfect and delicious. Only problem was we couldn't get a res for another night. Make your... More

Just had dinner here on a number of recommendations. Being the foodies that we are... we left our all inclusive resort to check it out. Sad to say, it really wasn't good. Let's just put it out there...a restaurant that seats 150+ will never be that great. The medium filet mignon was well beyond medium (picture attached). The famous grouper... More

We went for the schnitzel and were not disappointed. I loved the stuffed schnitzel Cordon Bleu, which oozed cheese and could not be finished by me in one sitting ( and I have a huge appetite for good food). For dessert, we had a very serious hot dark chocolate soufflé. The atmosphere is loud and a bit raucous, which can... More

We made reservations in advance as this is a popular location . When we arrived by 4 year old had fallen asleep and was draped over my shoulder . The staff took 2 chairs, pillows and a table cloth and made a make shift bed so we could enjoy our meal . The service was impeccable during our meal and... More

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
