We ate here several nights as this was the closest restaurant to us. We also had lunches during the day. From somewhere the 10th of Jan the food became much better, very good actually - new chef? The location is wonderful. A bit pricey and the service is not really in pair with what you pay. Sometimes we got our... More

After hearing great things about Passions we went ahead and made reservations for dinner at sunset on Eagle Beach. It did not disappoint! Our waiter Joop was wonderful and attentive; a rainstorm was coming in and they relocated us from the beach to a cover under a tiki hut which we shared with another wonderful couple from Venezuela. The seafood... More

We came here on our first night in Aruba. We were staying down the street and didn't rent a car. We decided to walk the beach and find a restaurant. We had reservations about eating here as it was affiliated with a hotel. Boy were we wrong. The setting was amazing. The staff was attentive. The food was delicious. The... More

For couples in Aruba, you need to do this one night at least. When the wind is low and the sky has the right amount of clouds (high but not right on the horizon), this is paradise. It is right on Eagle beach and the service is good. The food is even better. This is true Aruba. After this night... More

We've avoided dining at Passions for a few years now because there were some not-so-great reviews and this year decided to go for it as it was one of the places open for dinner on New Year's Eve and easy walking distance from Paradise Beach Villas. I am so glad that we finally tried it out this year. Every bite... More

There is no more beautiful setting for a romantic dinner than Eagle Beach and, if Mother Nature cooperates, there is no better entertainment. Dinner here is expensive--plan on $100 per person if you have cocktails and/or wine. But the food was delicious and it was absolutely worth it.

Wonderful food. Attentive service. Spectacular beach setting, especially at sunset. Our server, Avril, treated us with kindness and care. A great experience, to be sure.

Beautiful setting. Both grouper dishes on the menu are worth trying. Salads are large enough to split between two. Menus light up. If you have trouble seeing ask them to make the light on your white. Service was great. Request Cully as your server. She was very personable.

A boardwalk runs from the receptionist podium leading out onto the beach, tables are right on the beach in the sand. Lighting is provided by tiki torches, making for a dark intimate setting. Fortunately, the menus are self illuminating making them easy to read, this is something that other restaurants could use. Make sure your chair is situated where you... More
