This was our second time we have been to Aruba and we have eaten at Passions both times. On this trip, we took another couple and visited your place on the first night. It was awesome, as we both had remembered, and it was a pleasure to see them blown away by the food, the setting and setting sun. I thought the food pictures on the Ipad were a nice touch and helped make our dinner decisions. Also, your wait staff were very patient as they all became photographers before the night is over. We will definitely be back. Hopefully, next year.

It all began when we finished eating our appetizer and they still hadn't served the wine. The waitress was no where to be found. I asked one of the bus boys if he can get our waitress to bring our wine.The bus boy tried to do something nice by bringing us the wine,but when he attempted to open it he had such a hard time that he asked someone to help him. At this point it looked like a comedy act.They preceded to take the cork out without completlely removing the seal and then poured it with the seal all torn and dangling from the top.Now the entrees arrive. 3 servers show up to uncover the plates and try to make a beautiful presentation. With no surprise to us everyone had the wrong meal. After we all switched our dishes we began to eat two $42.00 entrees one filet mignon was burnt to a crisp and the other one was completely raw; at this point we ask them to cook the raw one but when it came back it was the same as when we sent it back.The waitress asked how everthing was. We told her we were very unhappy. She said she would tell the cooks in the kictchen. When she came back she handed me the bill and showed me where to put an additional tip because a 15% services charge was all ready added.Not a great way to start a vacation. Don't waste your time going there.

A beautiful sunset, great food, and great service is the reason we come back to this restaurant every year. I love the coconut encrusted Grouper!!! The staff is very service oriented.

Absolutely perfect. The service was great and the food was even better. Actually proposed to my girlfriend at dinner and the staff was just perfect. They took a bunch of pictures for us. Thanks for making this meal a memory that will last forever.
