What a lovely place. They had a special for couples for $130. Two appetizers two entrees and dessert. Oops forgot it comes with a bottle of wine!! Beautiful scenery on the beach.

What a beautiful setting very romantic, starters were amazing as was the deserts. However, the main event was not up to the same standard with severely over cooked fish and lobster, which took an hour and a half before it arrived, service was extremely slow for everything. All of that said I am sure that on another occasion things would be different, and a blip with the main course was overlooked by the excellence of the other 2 courses I would certainly try again

The atmosphere and food here were phenomenal, would highly recommend! We went here on our honeymoon and loved eating on this beautiful soft sandy beach watching the sunset. The food was delicious as well. We got the calypso shrimp and the red snapper special which were both amazing. This place has it all. Make sure you get a chance to try this restaurant on your vacation

Great ambiance, but the violin player was so loud and not good that it actually took away from the experience. Without the overbearing flute playing happy birthday poorly at least 6 times during our meal I would recommend the meal as the environment was great and the sunset was beautiful

Food and service were great. We had an 8:15 reservation, and when our food was being served at 9 pm, the staff was breaking down the restaurant, very disappointing.

Wouldn’t recommend going after 7pm to avoid this, really ruined an otherwise perfect evening.

Tables are not made for tall people. I’m 6’6” and was not able to fit my knees under the table unless I sat far away, or with my legs tucked under me. Quiet setting and good music while you eat. Service took a while, but to be expected when on vacation. Fun staff but slow service. Food was good. Lamb shank pulled right off the bone. Sunset is photo-worthy with sunset sailboats going by throughout the meal.

They treat you very well- the food was good and the staff was great. We went for our anniversary and they made us feel really special. But the most important part of the experience was location, location, location!! We had a table right on the beach and you dine as the sun sets. If you go to Aruba you have to book Passions!!

It was wonderful. My husband & I were given the table closest to the beach. As we put our feet in the sand, we were served good food, but the music & ambiance were superior. Ernesto played the most amazing guitar music. We really come here for him, the drinks & the beautiful view! A+

Celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary with good friends at Passions on the Beach. Our waiter was a young man who was interning. He was so nice and did a great job. The food was amazing and the ambiance was even better. Started sprinkling just before dessert and they moved our table under a palapa and all was good.
