    MJs

    We went to Madame Jeanettes this trip. We had a reservation as usual. It took over an hour and a half to just get apps. Then our meal was over two hours. It was a terrible experience. The manager came to table to offer apologies and a free dessert. We ordered dessert which took another long wait then the wait staff tried to charge us for the desserts..... not sure what has happened. We book this on most every trip to aruba and was very dissappointed. We finally left after almost three hours total.

    Our service in July was slower than usual.... nice relaxing meal but we were ready to leave when we did..... hope this isn't a trend.

    Kinda scared

    This is the restaurant that we most look forward to when coming to Aruba. This is also the place that we bring our guests to when showing off "our island". This year is the first time that my inlaws are coming to Aruba and I have really hyped up MJs over the years... This post, along with others on different websites is very concerning...

    We used to love MJs, but had an experience similar to the ones mentioned in this thread - very lackluster service. The food was good, not great and the table next to us was filled with loud and obnoxious people, which added to the disappointment, I'm sure.

    This trip, we went to Papiamento and Barefoot and I would recommend both over MJs at this point. Both are prettier settings and the food was as good if not better. Importantly, the service at both was impeccable.

    i am sure you were so very disappointed!!

    we too have had a pretty uncomfortable night there.......because of lack of breezes we were miserably hot and sticky. top it off with a table of loudmouths nearby and it made for a difficult night.

    we did not give up on MJs and our next visit was wonderful and the service terrific.

    all places have an off night every so often.

    Agreed.... We're not gonna give up on Mme J's! Every time has been perfect with the exception of a bit slower service this time.

    I was at MJ's in July for about the 6th or 7th time and had fabulous food and very professional service. There were 6 of us and we were seated next to a large group and I was concerned that we would suffer beacause of the attention to their table, however our waitress was excellent and the water glasses and wine glasses were always full. I did notice a bit of a downturn a few years ago but I have had only positive experience there over the past few years. Barefoot is an excellent restaurant too, but don't be afraid to go to MJ's.

    I love the beach (who doesn't?), anywhere that I can snorkel, The Donkey Sanctuary (much to the dismay of my daughter), the lighthouse.

    We just returned from a fabulous night at MJ's. We had read some recent reports about the service being slow, this was not the case tonight. Our wait staff was very attentive, and our meal was outstanding.

    We have typically had an early reservation (6:30) and that has always worked out well for us.
