“dinner in the sand”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

The staff is terrific. The menu has something for everyone and food was very good. You cannot beat the atmosphere. You are literally on the beach having a upscale dining experience. Quite romantic The only negative is that there are no real bathrooms. They are porta potties. They are clean though!

“Awesome”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Dining on the beach doesn't get better than Passions. Fantastic view of the sunset and after the sunset the lighting and ambiance very romantic setting... The staff was very attentive and made us feel special. The food was excellent, served in a timely fashion with a very nice presentation. After dinner we lingered had a after dinner drink and enjoyed the view of the ocean.

“Top 5 meals....ever”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

One of the top 5 meals we have had. Atmosphere being picture perfect doesn't hurt either. Very romantic with outstanding food. You have to try the beef carpaccio ...we almost ordered a second because we didn't want to take the last bite.

An Aruba must!

“Nice setting but food just ok”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We arrived at Passions as our first stop in Aruba and were welcomed with one of those brief Aruba rain storms. The setting is terrific and we enjoyed our first island drinks which were wonderful. As much as we loved the setting and the friendly service, our food was not so terrific. I started with the soup which was simply awful. I never send food back to the kitchen, but it was not edible so I did. Just to be safe, I ordered a Ceasar salad as my entree which arrived as drenched in dressing as I was from the shower. My partner had the grouper which was a little overdone, but tasty. The service was friendly. The porta-potty bath rooms leave much to be desired. Other restaurants on the island offer the same setting with much better food and even better service.

Made dinner reservations here so we could watch the sunset. Food was good - great presentation, and delicious. We had some delicious desserts here. Service is very good too.
