Wonderful food. Attentive service. Spectacular beach setting, especially at sunset. Our server, Avril, treated us with kindness and care. A great experience, to be sure.

Beautiful setting. Both grouper dishes on the menu are worth trying. Salads are large enough to split between two. Menus light up. If you have trouble seeing ask them to make the light on your white. Service was great. Request Cully as your server. She was very personable.

A boardwalk runs from the receptionist podium leading out onto the beach, tables are right on the beach in the sand. Lighting is provided by tiki torches, making for a dark intimate setting. Fortunately, the menus are self illuminating making them easy to read, this is something that other restaurants could use. Make sure your chair is situated where you... More

Last night we chose to eat at Passions. No sooner had we been seated and given the menus than the rain started, heavy wetting rain. We took shelter under one of the beach umbrellas. No great drama, we were given towels to dry off and the table was rearranged under the cover of the umbrella. The food was great, beautifully... More

Probably the most romantic location one can experience for a sunset dinner on Aruba, simply beautiful. But the service is not very good, from the poor greeting at the outset to the erratic service at tables. The food is average and needs an upgrade in flavor and presentation--and the chef needs to rethink dumping a load of mashed potatoes on... More

This restaurant is located right on the beach. You are seated around tables under the stars with the waves crashing just a few yards from your feet. The food was very good and the portions are more than generous. I would suggest splitting plates. The fish was very fresh and delicious.

If I could rate this 10 stars I would. First I apologize for the late review. Time just slips away. I am ready to book my next trip to Aruba May 2017 and did not want to forget to share my amazing experience at Passions on the Beach this past May 2016. In May 2016 my best friend and I... More

Probably the most romantic dinner I've had in flip flops. On the beach with menus that light up in the dark. A beautiful experience and a must!

This was a place we chose just because it was close to our resort. For a quick choice they over delivered. The beef carpaccio, watermelon feta and smoked salmon roasted peppers started the meal off. I was not sure about watermelon feta but it was excellent. Pictured is what I ordered the Perfect Match which is grilled Mahi Mahi with... More

Loved the location of passions on the beach. You're getting exactly what you signed up for, a dinner with a great view and romantic vibe. The food is average. I recommend going here for lunch, the lunch menu is much better than dinner. However, for lunch, you don't have formal tables set up. There is more of a bar lounge... More
