Faro Blanco Restaurant
Situated atop of the Hudishibana hill right next to Aruba’s most famous landmark the California lighthouse is our hidden gem. The Faro Blanco Restaurant which once was the dwellings of the lighthouse keeper now serves Aruba and it's guests the best in Italian cuisine.

As the only restaurant boasting this unique location, guests can enjoy a truly unspoiled view over Aruba’s west coast untouched nature. The sunset and views over Aruba create a spectacular palette of colors, ideal for taking pictures and creating new and lasting memories.

The View Is Special

Aruba's highest restaurant looks out over the Sea and the northern third of the island. We had lunch: The fish and seafood soup was excellent and the carpaccio was done well, but a vegetarian sandwich was not because they do not have good bread. Service was good, not great.

We had made reservations but they did not have them on the books, we had laser lights shining on us as a light show was being set up, very uncomfortable. The food was very poor, my crepes were hard and the sauce was flaky as if it been under a very hot lamp, my husband's risotto was dry and more like a paella, the lasagne was overcooked and so was the veal. Not what we expected at all, very disappointing. For the prices charged we were totally ripped off, better food in a cafeteria.

We heard to go for a drink but not the food,,so we did,,we observed great looking dishes comming out so we returned two nights later with friends...The food was very good. We had pasta dishes and veal. Presentation was great and wonderful service...The view speaks for itself. We suggest this as a must place to go...We are 6 time Aruba guests from North Jersey and all of us are Italian and felt the food was very good.

The view from here is amazing and should not be missed. And unlike some places with great views, the food was also very good. We ate on the balcony and the entire evening was wonderful. The appetizer and dessert were the best. The chicken in my pasta dish was a little dry, but still very good. The service was dependable but not hovering. We will go back.

My visit to 'La Trattoria: El Faro Blanco' was very pleasant. We loved it.

My family liked the Calamari Fritti. I liked the eggplant and mozzarella cheese topped with Marinara sauce appetizer (Tortino Di Melanzane). I enjoy the variety and choices.

Their dish 'Costolette Di Angello Al Forno o Alla Griglia'
(Baby rack of lamb grilled or baked with rosemary, garlic, olive oil and black pepper) was the highlight of the meal, my family loved it. Also their 'Linguine Della Scogliera
Linguine' (with assorted Seafood such as baby octopus, squid, clams, mussels, baby shrimps, jumbo shrimp, basil, garlic, and our unique pomodoro sauce) was excellent. Too huge to finish ;). Their 'Filetto Di Spigola Gratinata Con Frutti Di Mare'
(Sea bass fillet gratin with mixed seafood topped with Parmesan cheese) was also wonderful.

La Trattoria: El Faro Blanco their service was terrific. Nice gentle people, nice view and very romantic.

Thank you for a nice evening and good service :).

El Faro Blanco is a wonderful restaurant on a unique location! Make sure to sit outside and enjoy the view in the sunset! The food is delious, the service is great. A perfect spot to have a great meal, feel welcome and spoiled. Our Children (10 and 12 years old) had a great time and loved the food. A place worth having a dinner!
