Went here with my family of 4. The atmosphere was great. It was a beautiful night on the beach. The prices were a little high but fairly typical for beachfront Aruba. The food was good but I feel that there are better options. The portions could have been a bit larger as well. Bottom line: I'm glad I tried it.... More

Our first night arriving in Aruba and not sure where to eat. We happened upon Passions and was very pleased. Great dining on the beach, toes in the sand, live music, good food, excellent service.

Awesome ambiance, awesome views, and awesome food. That sums up our experience at Passions on the Beach. If there was only one restaurant you could go to in Aruba, this is it. We enjoyed drinks and appetizer as the ocean lapped at our feet and the sun disappeared into the ocean. We shared Sea Bass under the stars as tiki... More

My carpaccio app was excellent, and others raved about the fish stew... you could see the pieces of fish in it. two of our party really enjoyed the grouper... More

This restaurant is now one of my favorite restaurants in Aruba, if not one of my favorite restaurants anywhere for the outstanding food, ambiance, outstanding wait staff, host, and fantastic guitar player!! The first night we were there, our waiter, Michael, was not only gracious, but had several ideas from the menu which he showed us and explained to us... More

My wife and I had dinner here the last night on the island before returning to Boston. This is on a quiet area of the beach, and the view and atmosphere were fantastic. The furniture and building seemed brand new. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The fish and sauces were first class. We ordered dessert... More

we had a great table on the beach however that's the only plus I can give the place. Very expensive, rookie waiter, mediocre food. Such a disappointment..

We ate at Passions 3 years ago and ate this past week with our children (12 and 8). The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. My children both had the steak which was great (and generous portions), my wife had the crunchy tiger shrimp, and I had the seven seas parade. All in all, one of the best... More

Great ambience on the beach. We stopped in after dinner for a drink at the bar. Restaurant was busy with lots of staff but took awhile to get some service. Our waiter disappeared so my husband saw our drinks at the bar and just went up to get them and pay.

We went there for dinner one evening as we were staying in nearby Amsterdam Manor, it was an excellent evening. Make sure you make reservations for sunset time (around 6:30) as the view is beautiful and the wait staff make sure you get great pictures of yourself and your partner in front of it. Its right on Eagle Beach (one... More
