“Best meal we've ever had.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

My husband grew up in the restaurant business and ran his own restaurant for many years. He said that his dinner at Passions was the best meal he's ever had. That's the first time I have ever heard that from him and we've been together for 32 years. Wait staff was wonderful, dinner was wonderful and sitting on the beach watching the sun set over dinner was wonderful!

“Amazing Setting”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

This was our second visit to Passions and chose to return because of the unbelievable setting. Walked over from La Cabana and started with a drink at the Amsterdam Manor's beach bar which I love. Nice set up and friendly bartenders, especially Napoleon. Great guy! Then we were seated for dinner prior to sunset. Excellent view of water & sunset with our toes in the sand. Our server, Teresa, was great. Our appetizers were okay, watermelon & feta salad and crab salad. My husband did not enjoy his lamb chops but my coconut coated grouper was delicious. Though the meal was not our favorite of the trip, the setting & staff made it a very good experience.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Right on the beach! Food and wiev was great! You have to visit this place! Make sure you eat around 6.30 pm so you can eat and see the sunset at the same time.

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Best dinner experience we have ever had in Aruba, when you combine great food, with good service, and such a beautiful setting its going to be hard to beat! we took our two adult children and they loved it. we during happy hour and the bartender told us they would bring our second drink to the table after we were seated, which I thought was pretty nice of them, and it saved us a few bucks. I had the grouper FANTASTIC., also the key lime pie was best I ever had.

“Good meal”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was a very nice meal. I thought it was a little over priced, however, we had good service. We never felt rushed or anything. It was a little annoying to be a this romantic dinner spot and have people acting crazy on the beach just a few yards from you though. When the sun went down, it was very peaceful though. :) We had the Seven Seas Parade, and it was yummy! The dessert trio with the sparkler was fun too! :)
