Beautiful View Feet in the Sand dining

We have been going to Aruba for many years and only tried Passions for the 1st time 3 years ago. It was one the best romantic on the beach dining experiences we've had. The wait staff is very attentive, never waited for a drink. Food was great and our group of 8 which every year has 4 newcomers raves about the meal and sunset long after our return to New York. Highly recommended.

great night at passions

My wife and I took our daughter and her husband along with their four month old child during our visit to Aruba in November 2014 to Passions.

The food was great and service excellent. Probably the best grouper I have ever tasted. It was a special that evening and my daughter had the same as I and felt the same about the meal.

We had promised my daughter and son in law a night where they could go out without the baby and they had such a great night at passions that they decided to return there for their special night. They said it was just as good as their first night dining there.

wonderful evening

We ate at Passions our last night in Aruba. It was a perfect ending to our vacation. Wonderful ambiance and sunset even with a child. Kicked off our shoes and a nice glass of wine before our meal. Our daughter is gluten free and we were pleasantly surprised they had pasta for her and made her a special dish. Added bonus for us. She also got a raspberry daiquiri that she couldn't find all week. Our meals were delicious and our waiter was very informative with the menu.

Beautiful dinner- must try

My boyfriend and I visited Passions on November 28, 2014 for a 6pm seating- right before the sunset. It was our first time in Aruba and we had booked about a week or two in advance.

You MUST try the seafood soup- amazing! We both ordered filet mignon that was cooked to perfection and finished up dinner with a couples dessert- the food was great, the service was great.

Our waitress Eleonora was wonderful and very attentive, she even offered to take a bunch of sunset photos of us and made sure we didn't miss the sunset!

The location, food, service and restaurant as a whole is beautiful and I can't imagine how someone could not vote this place 5 stars!


Passions team,

Our dinner was beautiful and the food was all made to perfection, it was truly a night to remember.

Thank you for your warm hospitality and wonderful service, my boyfriend and I will be back every time we visit Aruba!

Exceptional setting and service

A perfect ending to our reunion (almost 40 years of friendship) in Aruba. Could not have asked for a more memorable setting. And the service from start to finish was truly extraordinary. Our waitress could not have been more professionally pleasant and patient. And the other staff, including management, was similarly efficient, thoughtful, and caring. I never do reviews of restaurants unless they are remarkable -- Passions is remarkable ! I quite honestly look forward to returning and have already recommended it to several regular Aruba visitors. Truly a class act !!!

Stunning...

On booking back in July for a September 18th table I advised this would be a proposal evening and the staff did not disappoint. Front row table and an acceptance from my fiancée success at Sunset!....
Our waitress who I believe was Avril, was attentive and very accommodating taking photos for us whilst providing a high level of service. The food was amazing, the steak I had melted in the mouth.

Once Avril had discovered the proposal she arranged for the Violinist to play for us and then our sweet was decorated with the words Congratulations. A lovely personal touch, thank you.

This is a venue that no photographs can do it justice, it simply has to be experienced!!

Best on Island

We celebrated our Honeymoon in Aruba and dined out 5 out of the 7 evenings we spent there. Passions On The Beach was by far our favorite dining experience. The service, food and romantic ambiance was something we will never forget. We will rush back to Passions on our next visit.

What a fabulous evening!

Oh my goodness! What a fabulous evening! We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We had the 6:00pm sitting. It was still light out but the sun would be setting soon. We were seated in the first row near the water. The sunset was amazing! We could not have had a better waiter! His name was Michael and he was right there in the moment with us. He offered to take pictures at just the right time. We started with a bottle of champagne, which was perfect! We had appetizers, salad, dinner and a special dessert with sparklers! The food was delicious. The night was very special! Thank you Passions on the Beach!

Wonderful Anniversary

We had a wonderful night at Passions as we celebrated our anniversary. The dinner was fabulous. We had the filet mignon and the Caribbean Shrimp. Perfect. We also had the tiramisu for dessert - delicious and the sparklers were a wonderful surprise. The violinist added a very special touch.

Our waitress was attentive without hovering. She was very friendly and helpful. All of the staff were wonderful. We loved the fact that they took our pictures several times. We have really enjoyed sharing them with our friends. We have told everyone about our special night. We have friends that go to Aruba every year and I am sure that they will now try Passions.

So many specials - the tiki lamps, the lamps on the table, the lit dessert menu, the sparklers, the fantastic beach setting, the perfect weather. There is nothing that you can change as far as we were concerned. It was a perfect evening.

NOT WHAT IT WAS

We spend 2 weeks I in aruba each year frequenting Passions 1-2 times during our stay. This years visit was a total disappointment. It started out great with our server taking our drink orders which arrived quickly. Once drinks arrived we ordered our appetizers and main course at the same time. Our appetizers came out in a timely manner. After that it went straight downhill. Once appetizer were completed & taken away we waited approximately 40-45 minutes and no main course. Ordered and glass of wine and another 15 minutes went by. Still no main course. Our waiter finally came over an apologized for the delay and offered us a complimentary glass of wine which we didn't really want at this point. Finally an hour and half after completion of the appetizers the main course arrived which was semi cold.
We are an island time couple but we arrived @ 6:00pm and didn't get served our main course until 8:40. Also it's time to upgrade the outhouses. Really..

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD, ET AL

Beat some weather and got into ARUBA in time to make our Valentine's Day reservation at PASSIONS. We were so delighted with the place last year that we felt they would be an ideal spot to celebrate the occasion and there was a full moon to boot. PASSIONS (and the celestial bodies) did not disappoint in the least. It maintained its standards of excellence on every level and it was refreshing to see the consistency of its performance. We generally do not like the adding of a 15% surcharge to bills and generally just leave our tip at that level for most places that do it. PASSIONS is an exception to the rule and it warrants and gets substantially more from us and it is worth it. Everyone involved puts out 100%+ and it shows. We highly recommend this place to everyone - it is a unique and enjoyable experience. In our opinion, it is the nicest and best "eat on the beach" experience that Aruba has to offer and we are looking forward to returning next year as well.

Visited Passions again after several years. Setting is great with lovely ambience. Food was good but varied among our four orders, was not the Wow we had experienced previously. Service was slow and not very attentive. Go for the Setting and manage your expectations otherwise.

Recently dined at Passions. I must say, the location and sunset were spectacular. The food was good, but not great. The locations up for that. I definitely think that everyone should dine on the beach at least on time in Aruba. Passions would not disappoint.

A night to remember

My husband and I dined at passions during our honeymoon 2 years ago and my husband still raves about his grouper entree and claims it is the best meal he has ever eaten. The food was delicious and unique the ambience and scenery were incomparable. Passions is hands down THE best restaurant in Aruba. Do yourself a favor and do not skip out on this restaurant !!

Romance in Aruba

We booked an early 6pm reservation so we would be sure to get a waterside table. We wanted to be sure to have the best possible view of the sunset. Arriving about 30 minutes early so we could enjoy the happy hour at the adjoining bar, we had a couple of delicious drinks and good conversation with people from around the world. We got the prime table at the end, closest to the water.

The service was exemplary and I cannot imagine a more romantic site for dinner with a beautiful woman. She loved her sea bass and I thoroughly enjoyed the grouper. The food was very good but the setting created a lifetime memory. I would highly recommend it as it wasn't too expensive and it will never be forgotten.
