Situated atop of the Hudishibana hill right next to Aruba’s most famous landmark the California lighthouse is our hidden gem. The Faro Blanco Restaurant which once was the dwellings of the lighthouse keeper now serves Aruba and it’s guests the best in Italian cuisine. As the only restaurant boasting this unique location, guests can enjoy a truly unspoiled view over Aruba’s west coast untouched nature. The sunset and views over Aruba create a spectacular palette of colors, ideal for taking pictures and creating new and lasting memories.
It was a beautiful night for dinner at Faro Blanco, yet another perfect evening. Up on the hill you overlook the ocean and city lights in the distance. Our waiter promptly took our drink order and left us with rolls, butter and ice water. We ordered a bottle of chilled Pinot Grigio which was poured for us and then left in an ice bucket tableside. For our appetizer we decided to try something called Crespelle Certosina which is a crêpe filled with baby shrimps and mushrooms topped with béarnaise sauce and grated parmesan cheese. It was a delicious start to a great meal. For dinner my wife had the Risotto del Faro which was full of many different seafoods. I ordered the Fettucine con Gamberoni alla Vodka, fettucine topped with marinara and alfredo sauce and topped with huge shrimps. Both entrees were delicious! The service throughout our meal was top notch and a hostess even stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking. This is the third year in a row we've dined at Faro Blanco and it won't be the last!
We had a wonderful meal. The food was excellent. The service was great. And of course the view of the sunset was spectacular. We will definitely go again when we return to Aruba.
Our Dinner was awesome as always. The service and atmosphere also great!
What a wonderful way to watch the sunset. Everything about this restaurant was great! Highly recommend!
Jairo did a nice job for our group.
Excelent serive, delicious food
If you are in Aruba this is a must visit. Make your reservation an hour before sunset and prepare to be amazed. The food is great, service is great, view is incomparable. Have a unique experience!
When we first sat down the waiter was not at all friendly. But as the night went on he was much nicer and friendly. The restaurant is beautiful and the view was fabulous. I would totally recommend this restaurant
Faro Blanco is in a great location as you can see a significant section of Aruba. It is windy, so just keep it in mind. The food is delicious, the wait staff friendly and the overall experience magnificent! Definitely recommended!
Excellent dinner. Food was good but expensive. We will be going back and recommend others try dinner at sunset.
Everything was wonderful! The food, the service, and the atmosphere cannot be beat!
The food was amazing and the service from Jairo was exceptional. What can I say about the views? Absolutely spectacular! They go out of their way to make sure all guests are happy and feel welcome. Can’t wait to go back!
Views are breathtaking. A must for your visit. Amazing scenery
Loved it. Wonderful staff. They were so good to us when we kept moving in and out because of the rain. Good was delicious.
Faro Blanco has the best view on the island. Our dinner was delicious, my sons shared an appetizer too(calamari) and they said it was great. Service is always top notch here too.

Just exceptional as always
JR. Great server
Amazing!!!!!!!!! Definitely going back!❤️
Great views! Good food!
Waiter was extremely attentive, However, the mosquitoes took control as soon as sun went down, we come every year, but 1st time in November. It would have been nicer if there were bug zapper hanging below, instead of everyone spraying 'OFF' bug spray. but other than that we will continue to go to the restaurant each time we visit Aruba.
Amazing view, great food !! Highly recommend. They made our honeymoon dinner very special, thank you Jr.!
Great restaurant. Been there many times.
Very pleasant dinner. Food was excellent...atmosphere even better. Thank you
Outstanding food and service, and amazing views.
Sat at table 303 and had spectacular view of the sunset. The filet mignon was absolutely delicious!
This was my second time here and it was amazing just like the first! You can’t beat the view of the sunset. Very romantic spot for my honeymoon! Service was good and food was good as well. I had the lasagna and my husband had the sea bass and he loved it!
Beautiful romantic place for dinner and our server was great! Delicious food.
Faro Blanco was amazing! We got there just in time to watch the sunset. Food was great, service was great, and the view was outstanding! Highly recommend.
