A perfect spot to see the sunset and enjoy a great meal and fantastic service. The service was spot on with refilling glasses and bring new drinks. The food was excellent and our party of 6 had a blast. Be sure to make reservations as the Faro Blanco fills up quick.

This was by far the best meal we had. I was a little disappointed and I had said we were celebrating an anniversary and I thought the couple would get a dessert. There were birthday celebrations with a sparkler. Little disappointed because it was a surprise. I didn't tell my cousin that I marked it when I made the reservation, I was waiting for the sparkler. Great meal and great service anyway!

Amazing food and service! Only comment for feedback was I had indicated to the reception when I called earlier that I had a birthday in our group and they forgot to bring the Tiramisu with the sparkling candle out until I asked! It wasn’t a big issue but it would be great if the message was given to our servers. Otherwise amazing experience.

Absolutely a tradition for our family when we come to Aruba. Breathtaking views. Try to be there for sunset. Always welcoming staff and management, and very competent and professional. We really enjoyed the calamari and the grilled lobster with ravioli this time. Easy to make reservations on line before you leave home.

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
