I felt like our dinner was part of a comedy of errors - that wasn't funny. Firstly the woman working as host couldn't find our reservations. (I had the email confirmation & made our reservations over 48 hours in advance ) On top of that she wasn't pleasant or friendly. She started we would be seated next and we went... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary this year in Aruba. We really enjoyed the food on the island, and Faro Blanco was our favorite! My wife had the seabass, while I enjoyed the Ossobucco. Both dishes were amazing, and Eric, our server, did a fantastic job. Highly recommend.

You come here for the view. The food is so so. It's not bad but not anywhere near what it should be for the price. Very average for what we expected. The soup broth and the sauces are what one would expect out of a can. Unlike others our service was wonderful. I wish I could remember the servers name... More

The view is worth a trip here just in itself. So romantic to look out on the ocean. I highly recommend you go at sunset and make sure you ask for a table that is closest to the water...these tables are the best and usually reserved so make sure you ask for what you want. As for the food it... More

Service was strange....we never were offered tea or coffee. All in... More

Food was delicious. Great place for a romantic sunset dinner. Not too many options for our young teen kids for dinner. 6:30 reservations was a great time to see the sunset over the cactus and ocean. Mostly outdoor seating
