    Never again, not even if the meal were free. Overrated and an absentee chef who is now a CFO and not a cook.

    We eat there at least 5 to 7 times per year. It's our favorite place on the island. Love their new tuna appetizer and their almond grouper!

    Sorry

    I know I am in the minority here, but I just don't think MJ's is that good. I was disappointed the first time I ate there (when it first opened) and I have been disappointed several times since then. I have also had very good meals there. When they are good...they are very good, but when they are bad...they are very bad! Not worth the risk for me. Too many other consistantly good restaurants on the island.

    it is ok that you are in the minority

    here, we have the civility and respectfulness to disagree with courtesy!

    This is one of our stops every year! I have read reviews on bad experiences but we have been lucky enough to always get great service, amazing food and drinks! But we have always made sure to make a reservation in advance and we alwasy get on island time once we arrive in Aruba so we are very laid back. We usually pick a few different plates so that everyone can try. My dad is a big craft beer drinker so this is one of his favorite stops they have an amazing selection!

    Looking forward to showing our wedding guests the restaurant in June!

    If everyone agreed on food, you would only need one restaurant.

    We never had issues with MJ's as Cindy, Rob and Arlene have. It's just that we never thought it was so special. Reading others' complaints and MJ's responses was enough to keep us away.

    Don't mean to go off topic but after Cindyo's comment about Quinta De Carmen I went to trip advisor for some pictures, reviews, went to website and was impressed. Someone wrote on trip advisor, MJs beware! LOL I have to check this place out..
