This was my 10th time eating up at Faro Blanco and out of those times we've had the same waiter for at least 6.. he deserves mentioning because he has the attention to detail that you want while dinning.. His name is Obed, such a sweet soft spoken man and a fabulous server. We always have the same dish, Parmesan... More

Service was excellent, slow food experience , with a great view. Reservations for 5:30 seated closer to 6 service closer to 7:45. Given the location not really an issue. Lamb chops & seafood soup hot high praises from the group.

I had dinner here one night and it was one of the more enjoyable meals I had on the island. I went with the gnocchi, a dish I order all over the world. It was wonderful and tasted "homemade." We went at night so it was hard to see the view, but the outside dinning was still very enjoyable. If... More

Such a great setting in the old lighthouse keepers residence. All dining (or most of it) was outside and the breezes kept the heat down. The food was not the best Italian food we've ever had but the setting made up for it for sure. I recommend it!

We met up with some friends for dinner. We had a large group which seemed to set the waitress off right from the beginning. Italian food with large portions that I thought was "ok". You can't beat the views though. You can see the island beautifully from here. Better places to eat but certainly worth the stop for the view.... More

We went to this restaurant based on a recommendation from the taxi driver. When we arrived it was around 6 pm....there was two people in the restaurant which was a red flag and we should have got back into the taxi to another restaurant...instead we stayed and ordered. I ordered the linguini with shrimp...the food was cold and tasteless. My... More

We came back to this restaurant for dinner after visiting the lighthouse earlier in the day. Wonderful Italian food. That said some little things need to be fixed. The menu as well as the check holder was falling apart, and this should not be the case. The view is spectacular as were the grounds. My pasta was to die for... More

The view is fantastic. The food is average......service was good. We were in Aruba celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. All the restaurants we dined at knew this info. Faro Blanco was the only restaurant during the week that did not remotely recognize that it was our anniversary which was a little disappointing. .

We are here to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. The view is so amazing and we both enjoyed our meals so much. OBED was our waiter and he was absolutely amazing.
