We reserved for party of six, all had an excellent experience from the moment we walked in. Eriksson and the rest of the staff was attentive and we're more than helpful. Everything he recommended in the menu was fantastic. I personally can't ever get Italian restaurants in Miami to make Alfredo sauce right. This place nailed it!!!! The best I... More

The Faro Blanco Restaurant is next door to the California Lighthouse. It is located in the former lighthouse keeper’s residence. The food is upscale Italian, expensive, and is very popular with the tourists so reservations are recommended. We found it while exploring around the lighthouse just in time to take advantage of the happy hour 2:1 special at the bar... More

This was the only thing we pre-booked for our Aruba trip; everything else, we were willing to play by ear. But websites said we *must* have a sunset dinner at Faro Blanco, so we did. It was easy to reserve it more than a month in advance online. The view is lovely--although, ALL of Aruba has lovely views, so it's... More

Wow is all I can say!! After visiting the California Lighthouse I took my mom here to eat for her birthday! First and foremost the view was absolutely amazing. We would have been happy to just take pictures here and leave. However, the food was just as great. When you can put a great meal with an awesome food it... More

We drove to look at California Lighthouse and we're lucky enough to get a seat for Dinner here. Had the Ossobucco and hubby had a crumbed veal dish ( sorry can't remember name of dish). They were both delicious. Table service was excellent. Teo ( I think that was his name, had a good friend that owned restaurants in Queensland)came... More

Very nice restaurant, excellent view of the island. Nice staff, tasty food. Pizza, fish, lasagna, beef...all were very tasty. Cold drinks. On the negative side was the waiting time, took like an hour to get our food even if we were the only guests there. I want to believe it was an exception so we go with the 5 stars

Visit this place 2x during lunch and both times slow service, do not go here for a quick lunch, as it took me both times 1 hour to get just a simple lunch which I think they could to much better, the quality of the food is ok, and the view is WOW.
