Amazing setting! Arrive at least 1/2 hour prior to sunset for a spectacular view. Treasure of the Sea plate and the Red Snapper special were just okay. Not much flavor and undercooked. Try the coconut grouper. Very attentive staff.

Food was very good. Very nice setting right on the beach. Disappointed with our server. She asked if we were ready to order as soon as she came over to our table. Who does that? She was also not fully versed in the menu so we were on our own as to what to order. Fortunately the food was delicious but based on the price of the food, the server should have been much more experienced and knowledgeable

The loveliest spot - literally on the beach, beautifully situated. The food was fresh and delicious - seafood focused ( though a bit difficult to see due to the darkness of the evening) , but I would certainly recommend this spot,

This was our third visit, in the past the service was excellent and the food outstanding. I don’t know if they were having a bad night, but we waiting 15 minutes for the waitress to greet us and ask if we wanted cocktails. We ordered our full dinner. The appetizers came before our cocktail. After our apps we waited 35 minutes for our dinner, it was cold and tasteless. As I said it was remarkably different from our past experience, we were disappointed and hope this was just a one time thing.

The guitar player added a pleasant extra. We go to Passions every year and it gets better each time.

We dined here our first night in Aruba. A memorable evening watching the sun set over a beautiful beach. The meal was perfect. I chose the coconut flounder and my wife chose the lobster and grouper. Very friendly wait staff. Amazing setting.

We celebrated a Birthday with dinner. The steaks were good, but the shrimp was very salty. Did not enjoy the shrimp and did not eat it. Nothing was said when we mentioned it to the waiter that it was was too salty. They should have offered to do something else in place of that dish. But he just went about serving other tables.

Also, the SMELL at the restaurant is horrific! They are building near the restaurant and maybe it’s coming up from the earth, but it made for a very uncomfortable dinner. Smelling waste during dinner was terrible. I will not eat there again nor recommend it to anyone.

Disappointing. Sewage odor near bar entrance; flies at the bar; servers not properly trained or professional; bathrooms substandard; no offer to secure a taxi upon departure; food average, by Aruba standards. This restaurant was much better years ago, sad to say. Management should visit Atardi to see how it is done the right way.

Outstanding food and service and ambiance on the beach!! Music was also very good but volume was a little high and made conversation sometimes difficult... With being outside volume level would still carry just fine if lowered.
All in all a fine dining experience!!
