We eat at this restaurant every time we visit Aruba and we have never been disappointed. It is an incredibly romantic setting for dinner. Dinner is served on the beach with tiki torches, Christmas lights, and lights on the table creating a romantic dining experience. The menu is original and the entrees were delicious. We highly recommend this dining experience... More

My boyfriend and I were so absolutely thrilled with our experience at Passions. Our plane was delayed and we knew we would miss our 6pm reservation. They were able to accommodate us at 6:30 and we were finally able to relax and enjoy. And enjoy we did! The food was incredible and the ambiance extraordinary. We were only in Aruba... More

This was our third time here and we were very excited to return. However, the experience wasn't as good as previous visits. While the staff are all very friendly, it felt like they were stretched a little thin- despite saying they would take our picture at sunset as they have in prior visits, nobody seemed available. Overall, the food was... More

Service was close to white glove....our server was preparing to attend hospitality school so maybe we lucked out with that one! Food was quality and interesting...not just the same old seafood. Price point is VERY high so be prepared. View and location and service make the price point well worthwhile! Make your reservation EARLY before you arrive to ensure you... More

Food was OK, waiter kept interrupting the conversation but was willing to take pictures of us, location is great, menu is lit up for easy viewing, soft light of torches around you enhances the romance in the evening.

Passions on the Beach was the perfect restaurant for our family. My husband and I renewed our vows on Eagle Beach, and then we enjoyed a family dinner at Passions. Relaxing with your feet in the sand and watching the sunset made for a wonderful experience. My husband and father loved their grilled filet mignon, saying it was very tender.... More
