    Travel + Leisure Magazine Article

    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!

    Nice of them to get recognition outside of the island. We have had lots of excellent meals there and always include it on our visits. I am always surprised when people have negative comments about MJ's. We have a reservation there on Thurs. July 8 and I can't wait!

    I agree with you jeff - never had a bad experience there. Top notch service and best food on the Island in my opinion.

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

    Its interesting that most negative comments are from one particular website only and i stopped to take those Guys serious, that side is highly commercialized and manipulated as well always when we get some very good ratings and and People start raving about MJ those negative Posts Pop up out of nowhere sometimes they even do there homework wrong and mention for example dished they don't liked we don't even have on our Menu !!!!!! HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS The best thing is make up you own mind and our success tells me we are doing something right here .
    I like to add also we take real critic serious and always try to Learn from mistake but made up fake story's from Suspicious Individuals I can't care less about I'm way to long in the Restaurant Business to bite in that Hook and leaf that for the Newbies
