“Must Dine in Aruba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

My wife and I were recently in Aruba, for a 1 week stay. We were staying by the Amsterdam resort we decided to try Passions, tables just feet away from the water. The food was excellent and the staff was even better. The dinning experience was so good we ate there 3 of 7 nights. Already book a 2 weeks stay next year. I almost forgot the best part the SUNSET!! Looking forward to next year for another great dinning experience.

“Great ambiance, food good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

We really enjoyed our experience here at Passions on the Beach. Nothing better than eating outside, sand between your toes, beautiful setting! The wait staff was very attentive, very friendly. Took all the pictures we requested. The food was good. To be honest, I would not say excellent, but was still very good. Well worth the experience, can't beat the ambiance and we even had to duck under one of the huts for cover as we had a brief light rainfall. Would definitely recommend.

“Excellent - our last night's meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

We made reservations at Passions before we even landed on the island and I *strongly* recommend doing the same. Several people tried to walk-in and were turned away. They open at 6p and are instantly filled for the sunset seating (Hint : Make your reservation for 6p so you can get some sunset pictures).

The decor, ambiance, and food were all amazing. Half our group felt this was the best meal of the trip (the other two felt Flying Fishbone just barely beat it out). The crab salad appetizer was spectacular (we all ordered it). Two of us had the filet/lobster and the other two had the Perfect Match, and the 'choose three desserts' option was a nice touch.

The only thing I would change would be that the catch of the day should be something not on the regular menu. This trip we ate out every night to enjoy ourselves….next trip we will only eat out a few times and this will be one of the restaurants - it's a 'must do' for setting, romance, and excellent food.

“Lovely setting, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

A great beachside setting that is perfect for watching the sunset. Service was very good. My wife got a dish that paired grouper and shrimp it was incredible. I got the pan fried sea bass and it was great as well, but compared with my wife's dish had set the standard very high.

A great place to grab dinner if you're on the island.
