Food was delicious, atmosphere is great. Enjoyed the dinner music, our waiter Obed couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Get there and seated by 6:30 if you want to catch the breathtaking sunsets. Can't wait until next time.

This was by far our favorite restaurant of the trip. We started on the outdoor patio but unfortunately it began to rain. Our waiter, Obed, was amazing! He quickly reseated us indoors, even though it was pretty full. The service was excellent by all the wait staff. My husband even commented that they were so attentive that his water glass... More

Had reservations, the lady at the "counter" did not acknowledge or presence, had to make our presence known, We were sent to a small bar area - it was full - after waiting 30 minutes and reminding the person incharge (?) that we had reservations we were finally seated. Our waiter was very good and the calamari appetizer was excellent.... More

The building, formerly the lighthouse keeper's dwelling on the headland of the island, has been extended to make this lovely restaurant. We sat on the roofed terrace and watched the beautiful silver sea and sky (no glorious sunset that evening). The ambiance was perfect, with tables nicely spaced and attentive staff. Faro has a good wine list, and we chose... More

We decided to have our last dinner in Aruba at this restaurant. There was so much talk of the view, of seeing the sunset as we dined, that we felt we had to come. As it turned out the clouds covered the sunset but it in no way dampened our enjoyment of the experience. I was so pleased to find... More

Our seating was delayed a bit because we arrived soon after a sudden dramatic rain that drenched their outdoor seating area. But there was plenty of room under canvas. We had an excellent dinner. My favorite appetizer was a specialty, Crespelle Certosina, an interesting combination of crepe, baby shrimps, mushrooms, and Bearnaise sauce, sprinkled with parmesan.

Very nice restaurant right at the lighthouse! Very good Italian food and portions. The outdoor terrace is beautiful! You just have to watch out for the hermit crabs that make their way up!! LOL. I have only been here at night and the view is beautiful, but I can't imagine during the day! It must be stunning. Very clean restaurant... More

We stayed in a house near the Lighthouse and reprised past wonderful dinners and beautiful breakfasts there. We've been here many times over the years and this charming scenic gem has not lost a step. Dinner was on a beautiful warm evening with a cool breeze overlooking the Caribbean. A steel drum set the tone for the tropical feel. The... More

This place is known by all the locals as one of the Finest places to go. Great views during the day, but the night views don't compare to the day views. we found the food to be very good but it did not live up to our expectations based on recommendations. We found better Dinners in town and for less... More

World class cuisine with a breathtaking sunset. Service was excellent. Definitely a must do while on the island. Far enough away from the commercial districts,but convenient to get to by the California lighthouse. Eggplant appetizer was amazing,bartender on the spot.
