Passions on the Beach
Passions on the Beach was one of my FAVORITE restaurants because it was RIGHT on Eagle Beach. The address is J.E. Irausquin Blvd 252 Oranjestad, Aruba. I ate breakfast on the beach there and it was PERFECT!
The cocktails are delicious, the presentation is beautiful, and the atmosphere is a MUST EXPERIENCE! I definitely recommend eating at Passions on the Beach. You won’t be disappointed.

The menu is made up of fresh island food and there is something for everyone. They have meat, seafood, and vegetarian options at Passions on the Beach. Children 3 and under eat for FREE.
Enjoy a Bellini with your breakfast on the beach or lunch at Passions Beach Bar. At dinner the tables are set up out onto the beach, closer to the water. In the evening the dining area has tiki torches to light up and enhance the romantic setting. It’s a perfect place to see the sunset during dinner, or to watch the ships that are out on their sunset cruise adventures.
Asi Es Mi Peru
Asi Es Mi Peru is a Peruvian restaurant located at J.E. Irausquin Boulevard 64 Eagle Beach, Oranjestad Aruba. It is ranked #8 out of 126 restaurants in Palm – Eagle Beach on TripAdvisor.
I never had Peruvian food before so this was a really fun experience for me! The atmosphere was really cute, but the service was AWESOME. I can’t really eat spicy foods so to say the waiter was accommodating would be an understatement!
HOURS: They are open Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 noon to 10:30 pm. The inside dining is semi-formal and outside dining is a little more casual.
If you love Peruvian food or if you are looking for a new experience then Asi Es Mi Peru is the restaurant to try. There’s even a little Peruvian marketplace set up where you can buy traditional crafts. The proceeds from the sales are donated to Aruba’s Cancer Foundation.
