We had a wonderful experience at your restaurant the last day of our vacation…4/19... We were celebrating big birthdays and a wedding anniversary of 38 years… Couldn’t have picked a nicer place… Delicious food, wonderful waiter and people who attended to us… lovely ambiance...Magnificent view of course… And the lovely sunset. The woman who seated us was very understanding in changing our table selection when we said that my husband could not sit directly in the sun on the lower deck… skin cancer issues.. Our waiter was also very kind in taking pictures of us and other tables… Very nice about bringing a couple of extra rolls… The penne vodka was amazing… My husband had the lasagna… Halfway through we switched… oh...and we had the rice balls as an appetizer… My husband enjoyed two glasses of wine... again, a terrific experience… Best wishes to your restaurant and Aruba as you regain life and business back after covid... Kind regards, Leslie and John DeAngelis, New Jersey

We love the linguini primavera but was disappoint to see that it was missing the mushrooms and black olives. Also limited dessert menu. Missed getting the tiramisu amaretto. I was looking forward to it but gone from menu. Please bring back the old menu.

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!
