Madame Janette
Ramon Helgers and Karsten Gesing founded Madame Janette April 2nd
1999. Their collaboration resulted into a place, which offers fine dining in a casual atmosphere.

Ramon is responsible for the exotic fruits, herbs and vegetables you will find in not only our dishes, but also in most supermarkets on Aruba. Karsten, a European Master Chef, trained in 'old school' traditions creates, with help from his knowledgeable international
staff, tasteful and creative dishes. Their combined worldwide experience
gives their dishes an original flavour with a touch of Caribbean in it. We call it the Madame Janette Experience! We hope that you will have a wonderful dining romance.

Our first visit to the restaurant was a few years ago, and we had such a disappointing evening we hadn’t been back until this May. As bad as that first experience was, this one was 180º different, and we had an excellent dinner. On our first visit, the total lack of service was appalling, and our meals weren’t that good. On this visit, one of our Aruban friends took us there for dinner, and we had great service and excellent food. It was the white asparagus season, and we had their heavenly asparagus soup to start. For the entrées, we had one order of pork tenderloin stuffed with ham/cheese/white asparagus, one order of pork tenderloin stuffed with onions/mushrooms/cheese, and one order of rack of lamb. All were excellent, but too much food, so we had a nice lunch the next day with the leftovers. We’ll definitely go back to Madame Janette on our next visit to Aruba. Madame Janette is located in the Bubali section, next to the Blue Village Apartments. All the seating is outside, but you have a choice of being on the deck under the roof, or out in the garden area under the stars.

This is a "don't miss" restaraunt. The food was excellent and the wait staff very good. We had taken a rubber duckie with us and set it on the table. After taking my order the waiter, with a perfectly straight face asked, "And what will the duck eat, Madam?"

The restaurant is pretty as if you were on the beach. It was a little hot, there isn't any airconditioner. The food and desert were excellent. The drinks are very expensive. A Cosmopolitan was ten dollars and a vodka and soda was fifteen dollars. We would definitely return minus the drinks next time.

I spent 5 memoriable evenings in Aruba all at wonderful restaurants-except for this one. We were seated outdoors which I found to be very enjoyable at other locations, but not this one. I swatted away more flys than I could count. This was in a residential neighborhood-do NOT expect a beautiful view. I think this is probably a great choice for those who believe they are used to fine dining but are not. The "reasonably priced meal" comments should say it all-

Best meal we had on the island while visiting for 7 days. Gourmet food with a "casual" elegance.

We have been visiting Madame Janette since it opened and will hopefully have the pleasure for many years to come. The secret is in the staff. It all comes together because everyone! cares, and it shows.
