This was our 4th visit to Passions and it just gets better and better. If you have a reservation just before sunset, get there early as there is always a queue to be seated. Fantastic to eat delicious food with your toes in the sand watching the sunset. Great music too from Lenny.

We recently visited Passions on the Beach last week during our one-week vacation to Aruba, and are so glad we did. I made the reservation online before arriving, and we were seated in the front row of the beach on a clear night and had a lovely time!

We spent our 1st night on the island at this wonderful spot. This is not your ordinary beach bar, it is an elegant dining spot with a terrific ocean view. Seating is laid out to maximize the view for everyone. Get there early to watch the magnificent sunset. The meal and wine list were excellent service was good as well.

This was our first dinner spot when we arrived in Aruba. We arrived just at sunset for the most amazing sunset I've ever experienced. We're downed to our table on the beach where you eat with your feet in the sand. Amazing! The food was amazing and Madam our server was great. A most memorable experience.

What was supposed to be a great night, turned out to be a disappointment. The view and setting were great, our waitress wasn't (very) friendly, the food mediocre.

Great meal of surf and turf. My wife loved the blackened grouper. A young trainee in hotel management from Holland served us very well.

Delicious food in the most romantic setting sitting with our bare feet in the warm sand while watching the spectacular sunset. What's not to love :)

We were able to snag a table for the sunset seating. Absolutely a magical time to eat here! The food was absolutely amazing. The service was good, that why it get 4/5. No major complaints and will definitely come back. Highlights: carpaccio, Caesar salad, mojito ceviche, pork calypso, shrimp and fish special with Chardonnay sauce. The drinks were good but... More

Very romantic dinner watching the sunset with our feet in the sand. The tiki torches and little white lights were a nice touch.Mahi mahi and shrimp with tarragon sauce was delicious! Husband enjoyed his scallops, shrimp, and lobster tail.
