Don't bother. There are too many good restaurants in Aruba. The only thing Ruinas has going for it is its neat environment. The service is pedestrian--management does not know the meaning of professional wait staff, the food is mostly poor, and the price is through the roof.

I used to love this place; a perfect last night romantic event. No more.

My wife and I were not impressed by the food here. We tried Ruinas del Mar 10 years ago and again 9 years ago and then avoided it yearly until last week. Our friends wanted to try it so we went along. Appetizers were very good, but the entrees were just ok. It's a very pretty place with good service, but when we're in Aruba, we expect really good food and we find it consistently at other Aruba top restaurants. We'll wait another decade before we feel the need to try again.

We always stay at the Hyatt and enjoy our Sat. nite dinner at Ruins. I was looking forward to the Sea Scallops wrapped in prusciutto and my husband always gets the grilled Pork Chops...no longer on the menu..all new. I ended up getting the Grilled Lobster tail(cut into chunks)over cheese tortellini in a light tomato/pink sauce with asparagus...delicious. My husband didn't care for anything on the new menu so they let him order from their other restaurant's menu..Cafe Picolo with no problem. He got the Lasagna which he said was really good. Everyone there is so nice and really took care of us..love to watch the swans swimming by as we ate our dinner outside. We will always return here.

My friend and I went here on our second night on the island. For appetizer, I had the avocado salad which I was very disappointed with. It had more peppers and artichokes in it than avocado. For my main course, I had the shrimp and sea scallops wrapped in prosciutto and my friend had the lamb chops which were both very good. The service was good and the waiter was friendly. We would come back again.

Just got back from our stay at the Hyatt. We ate at Ruins this past Sat. night. Beautiful as always...sat in the open aired area. I always get the Seared Shrimp & Prosciutto Wrapped Sea Scallops...delicious. My husband enjoyed his DoubleCut Pork Chops. Service was great! Will always return to Ruins for a wonderful dinner.

Ruinas Del Mar continues to be the "jewel" resturant in Aruba. Besides the most amazing and wonderful atmosphere, the food is "outstanding", Probabably the best restaurant on the island. It is upscale in pricing $, but worth every dollar. I suggest you sit outside where the candles and torchs , light up the night , overlooking a beautiful fish filled pond. Ultra-romantic! We go every year for past 15 years. It is located at the Hyatt resort. ENJOY..

We love love love Ruinas del Mar!!! We ate there for Sarah's birthday and they did a great job! At dessert time they brought her a small cake with a candle and written in chocolate it said Happy Birthday. There is a beautiful waterfall and black swans. At the entrance there are two pounds with fountains where you could throw in coins. The breakfast buffet is wonderful! From pancakes and waffles. To fruit and fresh omlettes. And sausage and bacon. They have it all and more! We love love love Ruinas del Mar!!!

This was a beautiful, romantic theme restaurant. The torches, the ruins by the sea theme, the waterfalls. The food was wonderful. It was our anniversary and they made it soooo special.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Each year that we return, my wife and I make reservations to dine on the outdoor patio. The service is 1st class, the food is excellent, and the ambience is exclusive to this location. My wife and I have celebrated our 20th and 25th anniversaries here. Highly recommended!
