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.

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.

We ate here for our first anniversary dinner and were not dissapointed! By far our best overall meal on the island. After being seated we were given two kir royales on the house in honor of our anniversary. The atmosphere with the white twinkle lights and wonderful music was exactly what we were looking for to celebrate our special night.

Might seem like an odd thing to comment on but the butter they give you for the bread was incredible! We each had the steak, shrimp and lobster combination for our meal and each bite was better than the next. Very nice portion and everything was seasoned. We hate bland food that we have to layer salt and pepper on. Dessert was a chocolate mousse cake that we shared. Very good.

We will definitely return!

We just returned from Aruba on 10-18 and had the pleasure of having our last evening's dinner there. The service is outstanding, especially from my favorite waiter Job. The food is excellent and there are many wonderful dishes with a wide variety of tastes and prices for everyone. Prices range from 10.00 usd to 26.00. On the menu is pretty much everything, seafood, lamb, pork, chicken, steak, and pasta. You can get a fantastic meal for less than the price of many of the chain restaurants. Try the Almond Grouper if they have it on the menu...it's out of this world. The dishes are always presented beautifully and the menu does change so there is always a new creation to try. We had some fantastic tuna/crabcakes for an appetizer. We always try to eat there a couple of times whenever we are In Aruba. The outside seating is very romantic with all the little lights in the trees. You won't be disssapointed but definately reserve ahead of time as they are VERY popular.
