A little restaurant on the beach with a great menu and friendly servers. My wife is a vegan and she had a great choice - a Jabarito. So good that she wants to go back tomorrow to have it again.I had fish tacos which were wonderful.

We had a wonderful evening beginning with a walk just up the beach to Passions. As the sun set, we had a delicious Valentine’s dinner with attentive service, delicious food and friendly people dining with us. We will return!

Overall good, not a big menu but it did the job. The jolly pirate boat blocked our view of the sun as it settled which I didn’t like. The service was great. Overall it was relaxing, they made good drinks too. I thought it was affordable, you are paying for the view.

Just a wonderful evening. The staff was welcoming and attentive from moments of arrival with an aim to please. Perfect blend of attentive service without being intrusive. Food hit the mark, from the appetizer sampler, to the entrees.

Passions has become an annual stop for us. Having dinner on the beach while watching sun set can’t be beat. They meet you promptly, are very attentive and quick to answer any of you questions and the service and the food were excellent. I have the filet and my wife had the seafood platter so we could share a,”surf and turf” dinner. The filet was so tender and tasty and the seafood platter was excellent - the coconut grouper was so delicious! We also had dessert and some wine and left feeling like we had enough to eat - not the overstuffed feeling you get from lots of other places. I highly recommend Passions on the Beach, it was so relaxing it should be a crime.

Second time this week I dined at Passions. It was a beautiful night with my hub, fantastic sunset at the beach and amazing seafood platter! We enjoyed our rose from France and some caprese salad to start. They surprised me with a delicious cheesecake with ‘fire sparkles’ on top for my Birthday as well! We loved everything, the staff was so friendly as always. Best restaurant in Aruba.

Stopped in for dinner tonight since we hadn't been here in awhile. Nice outdoor seating on the beach. Our server, Jazmine was friendly and did check back to see how things were. My wife ordered the Coconut Grouper and I had the snapper and asked not to have the pickled onions. The food runner brought our meals out and auctioned them off, but got them wrong. The meals come in covered dishes and he held up one and asked who had the snapper. I said I did, so he placed it in front of me and put the other one in front of my wife. When he uncovered the dishes, mine had the pickled onions. OK, no biggie. When Jazmine came by to ask how things are, I told her about the onions and she said "oh boy" and looked at her order pad. Then, she told us that the dishes were reversed; the food runner had the dishes mixed up. Now, that might not be a big deal to some, however, it should not happen in a fine dining restaurant. Also, that's a problem when you have food runners. Both dishes were good. Prices are par for the course for a fine dining restaurant and the last time we were here, they added a 15% service charge but not this time. Overall, good place for dinner, but they do need to train the staff better on mask wearing; some noses were peaking out.

Great restaurant and reasonably priced considering the location right on the beach. We went there twice during our stay (with out kids), that's how much we loved it!
