Live like a celebrity

This was our favorite experience in Aruba. My husband and I went here for our 20th wedding anniversary. It will be on my list to do every time we come back. I felt like a celebrity on an episode of the Rich and Famous. The food and staff were amazing. Thank you for an incredible evening.

25th Anniversary

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 25th anniversary dinner at your restaurant on 6/30/15. It was truly a remarkable setting. The service was outstanding and our compliments go out to our waiter Kelvin as well as all other restaurant staff including Alejandra.

We were amazed at the transformation that takes place each evening and how hard the staff works to get the beach ready for dinner.

Celebrating our anniversary at Passions is a memory that we will cherish forever!

Thanks for making our special day truly special!

Disappointed

One entree (Crusty Tigers) was very good but the Pasta was very ordinary. Also, there was a issue with flies at the bar and at the table when the entrees were served. There was also a faint odor similar to dead fish which was very unusual given a strong sea breeze in an outdoor seating area.

Stellar Night

Invited friends from the USA to celebrate Mother's Day. It was a magical evening. We were seated near the water and there was quite the breeze. But it only added to the categories experience. Our waiter, Michael Juan, was very polite, friendly and knowledgeable. He was forth coming with
Beverage as well as menu suggestions. Service was great, food was superb, ambiance was dreamy. My friends were impressed with everything and plan to make it back. Try the Watermelon salad and the Aruban Soup. Grouper and shrimp are melt in your mouth. Thanks to all for such a wonderful evening.

Our Favorite Restaurant in Aruba!

We were just in Aruba for a week and had dinner at Passions twice. We ate at some wonderful restaurants while there, but Passions was our favorite. The food is some of the best I have ever experienced. Their grouper is awesome. You were recommended to us by a friend and we will surely recommend you to everyone we know traveling there. We even bought lights like you have on your tables when we got home to remind us of our experience there!

Doesn't get more romantic than this!

Our group of 6 were able to enjoy a perfect evening at Passions. We first enjoyed the beach, bar and water during the afternoon, and then changed clothes to enjoy a special dinner on the beach. The location is perfect for views of the sunset on the ocean. Food was fantastic. All started with their seafood chowder. Served in a neat soup tureen. We could have easily made that the entree!
All ordered fish and or shrimp dishes. The servings were large and very tasty. We chose to skip dessert as we all enjoyed the selection of coffee's from around the globe. Service was prompt, easy going and fun! A very special evening for our group to celebrate our anniversaries together. Sure hope to return soon!

Romantic experience on the beach

We had a wonderful experience at Passions on the Beach. The servers were friendly and helpful and they helped make the experience a very memorable one. The setting on the beach was romantic, and the light breeze, beautiful moon and exceptional service all contributed to a wonderful and romantic evening. My only complaint was the women next to our table who was smoking, and the smoke was blowing directly on us. It did detract somewhat from our pleasure of the ambiance of the beach setting.

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!!
