I came to faro Blanco for a dinner with my girlfriends, I ordered pasta and let me tell you it was divine. the views were better than I could have imagined. I am definitely coming back here on my next trip to Aruba!

this is a fantastic place to watch the sunset, but i personally wouldn't go again for appetizers. We ordered the fried calamari rings which came out with what we were pretty sure was campbell's condensed tomato soup (with nothing else in it) for $15, and...the buffalo mozz caprese... was really just regular mozz, 3 slices of mozz, 3 slices of tomato, & 3 basil leaves for $16. That's a bit much even for Aruba.More

My wife and I dined here for Valentine's Day. We sat on the upper terrace and had a great view. I had the vegan Caesar Salad and vegan Penne alla Vodka. The pasta was the best vegan Italian dish I have ever had!

We have been going to Faro Blanco for years. We were there for Valentines Day. The view and food is great! I was disappointed that they did away with white tablecloths and cloth napkins. The table is black with black paper napkins. For a restaurant...this beautiful it lost some class. I was also disappointed that on Valentines Day there was no entertainment such as a violinist or singer, anything. Also you had to download the menu. We had one phone so my husband & I had to share the phone. Please bring the menu back. For the first time, I was disappointed.More

This is my 4th time to Faro and the 1st time solo. It took my waiter 20 minutes to take a drink order where he appeared confused that I was alone. His game improved and finally took my food and wine order where the pasta...was good and hot; however, the shrimp was cold with it. Pricey dinner for average food and mediocre service... only redeeming quality was the view.More

If you've never been, this is a great spot. Make a reservation and watch the sunset (it's windy but worth it). You are the point and see both sides of the island as well as the lighthouse

The experience was excellent. Go before sunset for the view, but request to eat inside if it’s at all windy. The outside deck you’ll be blown away. The food is subpar. I wouldn’t go back to eat food here but definitely worth the sunset. Service...was very attentive. But can’t get past the not great food.More

This was a birthday celebration for my best friend while we were vacationing in Aruba over the holidays. We visited the California lighthouse and walked in to see if there was an opening for dinner the next day. We were easily accommodated and the hostess...even recommended a time so we could see the sunset. Definitely reserve a time before the sunsets and outside for better viewing. We ordered Bollinger champagne, calamari, bruschetta and the fettuccine with shrimp. Everything was absolutely delicious. The service was absolutely incredible with J.R. and Sherry making sure everything was up to par and checking on us often. They made our dinner wonderful as they were so so kind, friendly, and excellent at their positions. The price is what you’d expect of a high end restaurant-check the menu and prices before going. I’d recommend highly-remember to go around sunset, you won’t have a better view anywhere else on the island.More

The view is absolutely amazing during sunset but the food was severely lacking considering the price. The calamari was dry and cold and as was the lamb. The other guests in my party enjoyed the food but didn’t think it was worth the price. The...desert was quite good.More
