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.
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.
Excellent food and service. This is our favorite restaurant in Aruba.
Good service good food. Thank you Arthur very nice person
Food was delicious Chucho didn’t check on us very often. Only had water refilled once. We waited awhile for the dessert and had no water for 45 minutes!
The service was superb and food top rate. Have been here before and will definitely return again.
Deliciosa la comida, muy buena atención realmente nos sentimos seguros y disfrutamos muchísimo. Gracias
Wonderful evening at Faro. Always love being there for great food, and awesome sunsets. Chucho was great - attentive, and provided great recommendations.
It was an absolutely wonderful evening. Such a beautiful setting, the sunset was spectacular. Our Server was so caring and attentive, the food was delicious, and served hot. We are here in Aruba for the first time, celebrating our 32nd anniversary, and Faro Blanco was our first dinner reservation, what a great way to start our time here!
The ambiance and the meal were fantastic! Andres was our server and he was very attentive! Perfect evening!
This was amazing. The service, view and food was exceptional. I would surely go back here again.
Service was great! The local special made it very affordable for us as locals. Even though we were late for our reservation, they still had our table reserved for us. Food was delicious!!
Waiter Jairo was excellent!
Great view! Great staff! Good food!
Fabulous food in a fabulous setting with great service!
Excellent food and service
Excellent meal!! Food was outstanding, the view was amazing and the servers were so nice!
We had a very nice time Faro blanco was perfect after we got engaged on top of the light house the food was amazing and the service
Excellent evening! Great wine choices. Mushroom risotto was delicious!
The experience was wonderful! The view, the ambiance left nothing lacking. The food was really good. My husband and I both had a pasta dish. The waiter was very good, but I think he got a little too busy. The overall was fantastic! Would definitely recommend and visit again.
Beautiful all around. Great food and wine selection. Gets a little overwhelming at sunset if I’m the bottom deck due to the loads of people taking pictures. They will not hesitate to stand directly next to you for that perfect shot or even interrupt your dinner to take the pic for them! Upper deck table highly recommended
Faro Blanco is a fantastic restaurant, the food was amazing the setting is great and the service was really good. The only knock I would put on it, was that it was pretty expensive, but everything was great so it wasn't too bad.
we made our reservation for the sunset view, unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. Regardless, the view from the patio is amazing. Chucho and the other staff were very pleasant and attentive. The food (carpacio, porcini rissotto, and veal scalopini) was great. Then the rains came, everyone sitting on the patio was quickly moved under cover and happily resumed their meals. Cheers,
Worth it! Thank you!
We had a very nice dinner at El Faro Blanco and the view is spectacular! The service was also excellent.
Beautiful place to enjoy a relaxing evening watching the sun set
My daughter and I had an amazing time, wonderful ambience, food, service- it was beautiful. Citronella candles on the deck would have been great since mosquitoes were biting a bit. Other than that, lovely lovely experience.
Great place, great views, food was good
It was a very spooky evening in this unreal time. Hope that the new normal never be the normal for ever! Anyway: we'll be back! Let me say: Fuck you Corona!! We are much stronger than you!!! Many thanks to the team of Faro Blanko - you made a very good job! Greetings Ulrich + Family Ps: .. see you in October.
It is a great location with the sun setting in the background. The food and service are always top notch and were in excellent form during our visit, especially considering they had only recently reopened. Highly recommended!
The only challenge was the mosquitoes. Also $14. For dogfish 60 minute is a crazy high price. It only cost$1.50 in the states. I understand you need to make a profit but that seems egregious.
Tha ambiance. Relaxing. Good service. Food was excellent.
We sat for over 30 minutes before making it known we hadn’t been served. Once that happened the service was okay. Food is okay, decent. Very high prices. Second time there, second identical experience. You’re going for the view, not the service I guess.
The music did an injustice to your beautiful restaurant and view. Perhaps classical instrumentals would be more fitting. The physical shape and size of your Menu was awkward and inconvenient for everyone involved. Your team took a minute to open up, but when they did, they were very enjoyable to be around. We love that you are so eager to celebrate special occasions for everyone in your restaurant!
This place is a hidden gem in Aruba. Next to the California Lighthouse it has spectacular views of the city and the outdoor seating is romantic and amazing. Better yet is the food and the service. If you like Italian cuisine you will love Faro Blanco.
We were there for our anniversary and despite mentioning this upfront opon our reservation. This was not celebrated by the staff. This was disappointing. Overall the food was excellent.
We requested for 4 cappuccino Were told by the waiter that the coffee machines “was broken” I Think it was more like they didn’t want to use it cause it was already cleaned.
Food presentation was lacking! Service was slow (refills took awhile)! Introduction do the restaurant could have been better e.g. (the waiter name? Presenting the menu? Specials of the day? Etc) Nice environment! Good music! Beautiful view! Thx
