Romantic dinner

Excellent place for couples, eating dinner within a few inches from the water and watching the sunset from your table. Great place, food is good and excellent service.

Food is great. Eating under the stars on the beach is so romantic even for senior citizens. We go every year when we visit Aruba.

I am not a foodie but I've eaten everything from MREs to 10 course gourmet dinners and find passions a bit over rated. We are staying at Amsterdam manor now and had two dinners there. The setting on the beach is definitely very intimate and relaxing the live violin performance is top notch and sets the mood just right, the... More

All year I look forward to having the grouper in a coconut wrap served with a banana dipping sauce - pure heaven! The grouper my husband had for dinner was also excellent, he said. This is our favorite restaurant in Aruba because the food is fantastic and the ambiance is so romantic. Servers is always beyond compare; they are knowledgeable... More

As people were leaving as we were arriving - they bragged about the food. The six of us had a great time, the food was great. Our waiter Nico was helpful in his entre selections.

Tables set on the beach provide the perfect setting for watching the sun set. The location compliments the great food and service.

Passions Restaurant is situated on the beach, 10 feet from the water. You can’t beat the view, ambiance and atmosphere. I’d passionately rate the atmosphere a 10, the service an 8 and the food an 8. The only other ‘on the beach’ restaurant we ate at was Elements which barely beats Passions with better food.

Passions on the beach is a very romantic restaurant right on the beach. Dinner at sunset was the best. The food was top notch. I had the steak and it was prepared very well. My husband had the steak and lobster and he ate every bite. Our server Avril was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. We plan to... More
