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!

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.
