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.
Absolutely Wonderful! Atmosphere was great, view at sunset great! The food was so good! Very generous portions! Had a mango colada to die for! Staff friendly - loved every minute!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely visit again
The sun set never happen but that is not the fault of the restaurant. Outside of that Faro Blanco met our expectations.
Absolutely fabulous!!! Can’t wait to go back
I highly recommend Faro Blanco restaurant. Also known as the lighthouse restaurant. It is literally the best location on the island and the food is outstanding. Our service was exceptional. All around an amazing experience.
We celebrated our 30th anniversary in Aruba and went to Faro Blanco on the actual date. It truly amazing!
The atmosphere was very inviting. The views where breathtaking.
Excellent sunset views and delicious food!
We had heard that the food wasn’t great, but our experience proved them wrong. Everything was spectacular.
Incredible! Will be back soon!
Great food, great atmosphere, perfect sunset dinner
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
Lovely view! Wonderful food and service!
We came to eat at Faro Blanco during our honeymoon in Aruba. It was well worth it. The setting was romantic and the view was amazing. The staff worked well together and were very attentive to request by all guest. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and we will definitely be back!
We eat at Faro Blanco every time we come to Aruba- this is year 25 for my bride and I - thank you for your fine meal and exceptional service !
Our service and food was excellent, however, after our dinner our waiter didn’t come back for a long time so we decided not to order dessert and coffee, just got the bill instead.
Loved the experience! Wonderful restaurant :)
Perfect dinner property was gorgeous a must place to dine
We loved the service and cleanliness
Amazing location and view. Loved it!
Wonderful experience and absolutely beautiful location. Must do while in Aruba.
Delicious food and great service!
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.
I loved the ambience, the sunset view and the amazing vegan food! We loved it so much, we came back the very next evening! We will visit again for sure the next time we come to Aruba. The pasta Primavera and Caesar salad were my favorite!
The restaurant was beautiful. Food was okay. Didn’t come out hot.
Our waiter was great. Took our picture when we asked him. Could have stopped back to see if we needed anything towards end off meal
Wonderful as ususl
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.
