Came to Aruba for our honeymoon with lots of suggestions on places to eat. Perfect setting, romantic, on the beach, sunset, but VERY windy the night we were there- tikki torches kept going off, napkins blowing and food cooled very quickly- however, the staff was quick on their feet and we inhaled our food because it was SO good. I... More

Amazing place to have romantic dinner! Table are literally on the beach and you can watch the sunset over the water as you have dinner and sink your feet into the sand. Must do if you are a couple.

This was my third trip to Passions, and every time is just as good as the last. My favorite dish is the grouper in the crispy coconut jacket, served with banana dipping sauce. There's a lot of hype around the watermelon feta salad, and while it is delicious, it's not worth the price IMHO. Passions is a must try for... More

My husband and I decided to enjoy a child free dinner on our last night in Aruba. I was torn between which beachfront restaurant to select but just decided to go with Passions. The service is phenomenal especially Avril. The food is delicious and fresh. But the absolute best part is the sunset. It was an absolutely beautiful end to... More

Everything at this restaurant was amazing...the staff was incredibly friendly (they even offered to take your picture infront of the sunset), the location was perfect (right on the beach), and the food was delicious. I had some great meals in Aruba but the grouper fried in coconut was simply amazing. My husband got the surf and turf and his was... More

Seating right on the beach? In gorgeous Aruba? Yes please! Our reservations were for 7 PM, which is the perfect time to catch the sunset. And what a sunset it is! Our waitress, Avril (if that's the spelling), was so amazing. She was so sweet and funny! Rounding out this excellent restaurant of course is the food. Now, I don't... More

My husband and I decided to go to Passions on the Beach on our Honeymoon this July. We made reservations before we arrived in Aruba which is a good idea because they restaurant was quite crowded. It was also recommended to us to go between 6:30-6:45pm because that is the time the sun sets. Upon our arrival the hostess took... More

We only ate there once but a nice location on the beach and shaded by a big tree - bonus! We split a burger and no one acted like we needed to order more, nor did they charge us for splitting a plate. The food was very fresh! The waiter was very nice and friendly and the food came quickly.

My family, friends and I celebrated my Mom's birthday at Passions. We got there at exactly 6 and had to wait a few minutes for them to open. There were 11 of us and the tables were set up so all of us had a great view of the beach. The atmosphere and scenery was breathtaking and being from New... More
