I was flipping through the July 2010 issue of T+L that arrived today, (I like to pretend I go to other places than Aruba) and I stumbled on this article.
Reader’s Find: An Island-Style Restaurant in Aruba
To celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary, my wife, Barbara, and I decided to spend a week in Aruba. We’d heard great things about the weather, the beaches, the people, the water—and, yes, the food. We love to eat and booked dinner reservations every evening. On our second to last night we cabbed it to Madame Janette, in the northwestern part of the island. A low-slung, historic Aruban house with outdoor seating and a tamarind tree, it was the only one of the restaurants we tried that actually looked like it belonged in an island paradise. Someone at our hotel had been raving about the potato-crusted red snapper, but we opted for the shrimp casserole—a delicious choice. As they served our chocolate mousse dessert, local musicians took to the stage. It was a very memorable evening. —Arnold Hollander, Via E-Mail
The article in the magazine had a lovely picture of the restaurant. It was perfect timing - we have reservations for next Monday!
