The restaurant offers a variety of Caribbean dishes, including King Crab, Tiger Shrimp, and a fresh Catch of the Day. The portions are generous and you’ll definitely leave feeling full!

Passions on the Beach is Aruba’s first beachfront restaurant, and it offers some of the best views in all of Aruba. Located near Eagle Beach, Passions is the perfect place to enjoy a meal with family or friends while taking in stunning views of white-sand beaches and crystal blue waters.

Passions serves dishes from The Ranch, Reef and everywhere in between—including their own original creations made with fresh island flavors. Their highest quality meats pair perfectly with irresistible seafood and vegetarian dishes. Sip under the stars by day or take advantage of their beachside location by night: they have live music seven days a week! Children 3 years and younger eat for free.

BLT Steak is a great place to enjoy a romantic dinner with your significant other, or an elegant family feast. With its oceanfront location, casual elegance and extensive menu of modern interpretations of American steakhouse classics, BLT Steak is the perfect choice for a night out on the town.

The restaurant’s weekly specials highlight seasonal Aruba flavors and local ingredients, while the regular menu includes such favorites as braised short ribs over creamy polenta, premium steaks such as filet mignon or porterhouse, seared sea scallops served with bacon-wrapped dates, shrimp risotto tossed in pesto cream sauce, risotto cakes topped with smoked salmon or crab salad, grilled chicken breast served atop ratatouille and poached eggs (topped with capers), pan-seared duck breast served atop creamy lentils with baby carrots and parsley potatoes, there’s something here for everyone!
