There are several places on Aruba that you can dine with your feet in the sand. The difference here is you have linen tablecloths, napkins, torches at each table. They have made a concerted effort to enhance the EXPERIENCE of dining on the beach. which is pretty hard to do. Service is attentive. Food is good but WHO CARES? Guitar music started later in the evening which was a perfect serenade not conflicting with the sound of the shore. If you are looking for romance I don't think Lawrence of Arabia could have done better. A little pricey. But worth the experience. The menus even light up so you can read them after sunset. Now who thinks of THAT? Reservations suggested. We wanted to eat on Friday night and they were booked when we called at noon on Friday. Our Saturday 6:30 reservation put us front row on the beach.

What can you say -- this was dinner at sunset in the Caribbean, on the beach in bear feet, about 10 feet from the water's edge. Food was very good, service was excellent, and the view and atmosphere are pretty impossible to match anywhere. Dessert came with a "sparkler" in the middle which reminded me of a road flare, but it was fun. A violinist was playing background music during the second half of our dinner, it was a nice touch. Not a cheap meal, but not outrageous when compared to the other restaurants on the island. You cannot buy a better view. Did I mention it was barefoot on the beach?

For that unforgettable meal with that special someone in your life, you can't go wrong with Passions on the Beach.

The restaurant's setting right on Eagle Beach, with the sun slowly setting and the water gently lapping nearby is truly memorable.

The food was very good, and the service and attention to detail superb.

Passions is truly a dining experience. The food was delicious (blackened red snapper w/ 2 GIANT grilled shrimp). The tables are positioned facing the ocean and the ocean, sunset and later on the stars are yours to view. Worth every penny, cant wait to go back. Just wish my wife will stop talking about it. See you in May 2014!
