Even though we went with a large group of adults and kids, I have to say, this restaurant is very romantic. The food was very good, and nothing beats dining on the beach, watching the sun set with a glass of wine or cocktail. Don't miss this one!

This was the most fun I've ever had with my teenage daughter and mother. Granted, we were the only non-romantic couple there! So peaceful, beautiful scenery, and yes - it is right on the beach! Running my feet through the sand while eating delicious food, watching the sunset - very cool.

All year I look forward to my favorite meal - coco-crusted grouper served with a banana dipping sauce - and I am never disappointed. My husband veered from his usual choice of red snapper and ordered the daily special - grouper with shrimp and scallops - and was delighted with his choice. We both ordered apple pie with ice cream... More

My wife and I just returned for another meal after 2.5 years. She got the land and sea and I got a steak. The location is amazing on the beach, set up is tastefully done, service is excellent and food is very good. I recommended this place to anyone who wants a treat in Aruba.

My husband and I recently visited passions to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The scenery was beautiful. The food was great. The background for pictures came out marvelous. The only issues I have was the waiters asking for separate tips. Overall it was a good experience and I'd definitely recommend.
