Delicious food and great location, but the service was definitely strange. Our waitress just seemed totally out of it. Slow, quiet, not very friendly. The food though was very good. Still a great place to eat if you're looking for dinner on the beach. Will definitely eat here again next time around.

Thank you for sharing this information and telling us about the inconveniences you encountered. We’re very sorry to hear your service was disappointing. Your comments are addressed to the person in charge. We've had some problems with the wifi- ipad system but this shouldn't have affected your service so much. We happy to hear that despite the inconveniences, you still had a lovely evening and we hope to welcome you again one day to give you a complete Passions-experience.

The reason people go here is the great beach location with tables literally by the ocean. The food is good but expensive and they add a 15% service charge up front. The service was very slow and it really seemed that the waitstaff didn't care very much about the customers. Even the hostess seemed to act like they were doing us a favor by letting us dine at the restaurant. Aruba has many fantastic restaurants and I would not go back here. For a similar beach front dining experience with better views, food and service (and no added service charge) try the Barefoot Restaurant instead. They work much harder to ensure you have a great evening.

Thank you for sharing your experiences and we're glad you enjoyed the restaurant and our food, but we're very sorry to hear you catched us on a bad night service wise. We've had some problems with the wifi- ipad system but this shouldn't have affected your service so much.
The 15% service charge added to your bill is a gratuity divided among our service and kitchen staff according to a point system and is part of their salary. If the service is good you can leave an additional 5 – 10% to insure promptness (T.I.P.). If the service is bad you should not leave any penny!!!
We do hope you enjoyed your visit to Aruba and we may welcome you again one day.

Anne and her staff were top notch in handling all the details. I am not easily impressed but she handled everything before I even landed. She emails you back in a timely fashion keeping our minds at ease.

My husband and I ate here in March, while on our cruise. I had made reservations for 6pm, so we could see the sunset and it was amazing!

The food was great and our waiter, Kheshon was outstanding!!! He was very quick with the ordering, wine and food! He also took photos for us!

The food was outstanding as well. I had the steak and lobster and my husband had the steak. It was all cooked perfectly and wonderful. The prices were very reasonable and the serving sizes were perfect!

The sunset was great. We will return the next time we are in Aruba!
