Passions on the Beach
A dinner at Passions on the Beach is far and away the most romantic and unique Aruba restaurant experience on the island. Dine with your feet in the soft white sand and the soothing sound of the gentle waves caressing the shore. Watch the breathtaking sunset on Eagle Beach while tiki-torches slowly light the night. The fresh cuisine varies from meat to freshly caught fish while the desserts offer an indulgent treat you won't forget.

We had a most wonderful time at Passions.
We were in Aruba for 10 days and we enjoyed Passions twice during our stay. The food was outstanding and the dining experience was fantastic.

Our daughter and son-in-law went to Aruba for their honeymoon and we sent them to Passions and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves as well. They said it was the best!

Was just in Aruba and Passions is by far the finest beach dining restaurant of the several we experienced. The table placement leaves enough room for privacy and the overall ambience makes for an unforgetable evening. I had the Filet Mignon and my girlfriend had the Mahi Mahi and Scallops both which were perfectly prepared and simply delicious. The Tunisian Shrimp and Seafood Soup appetizers were excellent as well. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive and the timing between courses was perfect with no feeling of being rushed nor waiting long. We felt the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. They also have a good martini selection if not into wine that night. I definitely would recommend Passions without hesitation and will be back on our next trip.

Passions has become the highlight of our annual trip to Aruba!
The meal was excellent - especially the crab salad appetizer and the grilled steak - every bit as good as the specialty steak houses.
Jean provided excellent service and helped me with the secret presentation of an engagement ring. Dancing on the beach with just the tiki torches and moonlight is a definite plus. The staff does not rush the patrons through the experience - very much on "Island Time"
This is our second time and we will return in later years.
Excellent !!

Despite having a cloudy night leaving us with no sunset, Passions on the Beach was our favorite dinner while on our honeymoon. The staff was fantastic as was the food. The scenery was beautiful and so memorable.

We were introduced to Passions last year by someone on the beach and ended up eating there 4 times in our 2 week stay. We ate there this year as well and as always the food is spectacular, especially the coconut grouper, it melts in your mouth and the banana sauce is to die for. The service is the best on the island at any restaurant and we have been to Aruba over 20 times and have eaten at many different restaurants. Looking forward to our trip back in December 2010 and eating at Passions again! You can not go wrong eating here!

I ate at this resturant the first night I arrived to Aruba. Compared to everywhere that I went during my 10 days this place was in the top 3. Eating dinner on the beach and hearing the waves was amazing. We started off with the drink special and they were delicious. The presentation of the food and drinks was great. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. They are very detailed oriented right down to the bug spray they offered us. We did not need it there but people did complain about bugs on the beach at other locations throughout the week. Give this place a try for a romantic dinner :)

I read the reviews about this restaurant for the last year before going to Aruba and couldn't wait to go to this restaurant. I have been to many restaurants in Aruba before during my many visits to Aruba. From what I read this was going to be the best dining experience ever in Aruba since this restaurant gets very high ratings. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed by how bad this restaurant was. I am from New York where some of the best restaurants in the world are so I guess I can say I know what good food is and is not. I think the prior reviews written here are by people who would say a Big-Mac and fries are delicious. I really was expecting a five star restaurant. The food was maybe 1 star. The preparation of the food was so tasteless and bland. Additionally, the waiter we had was so rude, that alone ruined our dining experience. The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the view on the beach as the sun was setting. Save your money, watch the sunset from the beach at your hotel and then go to dinner elsewhere. I thought I would save the long drive to Flying Fishbone and eat here. After eating here I realized the drive to Flying Fishbone is worth it. What a waste of a lot of money to see the sunset. I read some negative reviews here prior to going but thought to myself, maybe I should try it for myself. All I can say is, I should have listened to those negative reviews. They were 100% correct. Sorry to say, when I return to Aruba next year, I won't be returning to Passions On The Beach.
