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.

Always Perfect.

We always dine here on our first full day on the island. We were promptly seated in the garden near the singer. Service was quick, attentive and flawless! No long waits for anything. We shared Bang Bang Shrimp and then Burgerloin for me and Almond Grouper for DW. Finished with Coconut Cake for me and coffee for DW. Perfect meal.... Mme J's has never disappointed us at all. This year the service was exceptionally good. Always an A+!

This our first time to Aruba and Madame Janette was recommended by a jeweler in town. Absolutely great food! The Sea Bass was great and the surf and turf was worth the price. The wait staff was outstanding and took great care of us. Great food, great atmosphere and we go again.

FANTASTIC!!

We just visited Aruba for my 25th time & have gone to Madaam Janette's as often as possible. I visited it 3 times this year. My wife & I feel there is no other restaurant that has everything you would want in a restaurant like this restaurant. The Almond encrusted grouper was fantastic & the service was also FANTASTIC. Great team work!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone! Thanks for the great time there and see ya all next year. Thanks Susan for the chocolate souffle!

Still the best on the island

Best restaurant on the island, hands down. This was visit number 14 for us and it is the still the most consistent restaurant on the island. Great atmosphere along with great food. We had the Leek soup and Goulash soup. Both made perfectly. For our main course we had the Vienna Schnitzel(best on the island) and Cordon Blue. Being the best restaurant on the island, their prices are in line with the other top restaurants in Aruba.

Excellent as always

Jun 14, 2013 - posted by
It has been two years since we were last in Aruba & one of the first things we did upon getting settled was to ask the concierge to make a reservation at our favorite restaurant, Madame Janette. Once again, we were not disappointed! We had the crab cakes for appetizers and ordered the almond crusted grouper along with the au gratin potatoes. My wife had the white asparagus and said it was fabulous. Everything was excellent as it always has been. In addition to a most delicious meal, we were surprised with a complimentary dessert that was quite tasty too, since we casually mentioned it was our wedding anniversary. How thoughtful and a perfect ending to a great meal at a wonderful restaurant. We can't recommend it enough! Madame Janette's is clearly one of Aruba's finest.

We have gone there every other year for at least 12 years....It's our favorite restaurant on the island. I was surprised it did not make the top 10. I will try one or two of the others on the list, but we WILL RETURN to Madame Janettes !

BEST MEAL ON THE ISLAND

May 20, 2013 - posted by
We have been going to Madame Janette's for years.Janis is the best server ever.She is so kind,we go twice a year once is always on my husband Cesar's birthday,Janis makes the evening so special.The food is to die for,we have had just about everything on the menu you can't go wrong with the almond crusted grouper,the porton is larger than the plate it is served on.The pork schnitzel with tomato,onion and cheese is so delicious and you have enough leftover for next day lunch.The desserts are unlike anything you have ever had,this year we had a brownie with cracker jack ice cream,and another dessert like a bread pudding both were unbelieveable.I have to say a great big thanks to Janis for making our meals so unforgetable.See you next year !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still our Favorite

Apr 11, 2013 - posted by
We just went, March 2013
We have been dining at Madame's for years now. Each visit to Aruba, we go 2-3 times. We love it. You can ask to sit near the music, when making reservations. We do.
The staff couldnt be nicer. Sean, Chris, everyone there, outstanding.
Love their salads, their breads with sweet onions, their shrimp, fish dishes, oh and the Madame Janett's potaotes! yummy!! and my fav..........rack of lamb.

Still the best place to dine in Aruba. Cant wait to go back in November.

Worst Experience in Aruba in 12 visit's

Feb 25, 2013 - posted by
Hearing a lot about this restaurant ....The experience of waiting 2 and quarter hours to be seated and served with rude service and Hostess that was not a very good lair, when we would be seated did not help, and That's with a 3 day ahead reservation......when the food finally arrived it was rushed service and the taste and quality was average..could had the same meal at any reservation on the island...That was my 12 visit to Aruba...the worst experience in all...This place I would not recommend to family or many friends who visit Aruba.....or on our 13th visit in Nov,2013 for two weeks..
