For couples in Aruba, you need to do this one night at least. When the wind is low and the sky has the right amount of clouds (high but not right on the horizon), this is paradise. It is right on Eagle beach and the service is good. The food is even better. This is true Aruba. After this night... More

We've avoided dining at Passions for a few years now because there were some not-so-great reviews and this year decided to go for it as it was one of the places open for dinner on New Year's Eve and easy walking distance from Paradise Beach Villas. I am so glad that we finally tried it out this year. Every bite... More

There is no more beautiful setting for a romantic dinner than Eagle Beach and, if Mother Nature cooperates, there is no better entertainment. Dinner here is expensive--plan on $100 per person if you have cocktails and/or wine. But the food was delicious and it was absolutely worth it.

Wonderful food. Attentive service. Spectacular beach setting, especially at sunset. Our server, Avril, treated us with kindness and care. A great experience, to be sure.

Beautiful setting. Both grouper dishes on the menu are worth trying. Salads are large enough to split between two. Menus light up. If you have trouble seeing ask them to make the light on your white. Service was great. Request Cully as your server. She was very personable.

A boardwalk runs from the receptionist podium leading out onto the beach, tables are right on the beach in the sand. Lighting is provided by tiki torches, making for a dark intimate setting. Fortunately, the menus are self illuminating making them easy to read, this is something that other restaurants could use. Make sure your chair is situated where you... More

Last night we chose to eat at Passions. No sooner had we been seated and given the menus than the rain started, heavy wetting rain. We took shelter under one of the beach umbrellas. No great drama, we were given towels to dry off and the table was rearranged under the cover of the umbrella. The food was great, beautifully... More

Probably the most romantic location one can experience for a sunset dinner on Aruba, simply beautiful. But the service is not very good, from the poor greeting at the outset to the erratic service at tables. The food is average and needs an upgrade in flavor and presentation--and the chef needs to rethink dumping a load of mashed potatoes on... More

This restaurant is located right on the beach. You are seated around tables under the stars with the waves crashing just a few yards from your feet. The food was very good and the portions are more than generous. I would suggest splitting plates. The fish was very fresh and delicious.
