Very good menu, you can eat with your feet in the sand in the middle of the beach watching the sunset

We had a romantic sunset dinner on the beach at Passions and it was as amazing as it sounds. The food was incredible and the setting was breath taking. I highly recommend the Aruban Seafood Soup to start. Reservations are highly recommend and can be made online as late as the day prior. Somehow the reservation I made online didn’t go through but they made sure to still get us a table. They include 15% gratuity in the bill.

Thank Chelsea C

Went here for easter dinner for sunset with wife. Was seated right away right in first row perfect setting. Waitress read specials left. Another couple sat down next to us got there drink order done before anyone came by to us. A waitress shows up with 2 drinks wrong table I still have not ordered a drink still waiting I told her. She left. Another one walked by and tapped table said our food will b right out. WHAT?? Food I said still waiting to order drinks the other table got theres and we were seated before them. Waitress explained she wasn't our waitress was helping out. She took our drink order and asked for food order my wife order a appetizer and the waitress asked for our meal order my wife said we will wait for our appetizer do not want our meal with or during appetizer to come out. Waitress stated they were getting busier we need to order now. Very rude. We said we will wait. Our waitress shows up finally and says would we like to order our food still no appetizer yet. My wife declined. I said just order it obviously they want to rush us. Horrible. Then our drinks came I finished my beer and the bar waitress came by grabbed the empty bottle and i asked her if i could get another one she STATED TELL YOUR WAITRESS AND WALKED AWAY. Long story short waitstaff absolutely horrible. Bill was 135 including service charge for 2 meals and a couple drinks. I have attached a pic of our meals. Look at the blackened crusted grouper how it was served I took a piece of it before I took picture 3 slices of pepper a slice of carrot cut in half. Half a piece of zucchini half of piece of summer squash and 2 tablespoons of potatoes. 29.00
The piece of grouper I could of got a filet o fish at McDonalds that was bigger. Stay away setting is nice but pack a sandwich and your wallet. Very disappointing

Dear Bob S.,

Please accept our sincere apologies for the fact that we delivered such poor and rude service during your Easter dinner with your wife and that the quality of the food served did not meet your expectations. In order to be able to show you that these are not our standards we would appreciate it if you could get in contact with our Food and Beverage Manager, Gerard, as provided to you privately so that he can do a follow up on your review.

Kind regards,

Alfred Kaufmann

Awesome drink service and delicious drinks. Lunch is served from across the street. Happy hour is best with 2 for 1 drinks. Bartenders are the best, especially Richard. Bus stop right there in both directions.

Had an excellent dinner at Passions last night. Everything was perfect from the food to the atmosphere. Toes in the sand and amazing jazz from the live saxophone player. Our service from Thomas and his assistant Edward could not have been better. They both went out of their way to make our evening special and were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I had the catch of the day which was fresh and excellent and my husband had the sea bass which he loved. We ended with a delicious key lime pie which was so good it would give key west some competition. Can’t wait to return to this perfect restaurant and hope the same waiters will be there.
