We had Sunday Brunch here -- the biggest Brunch choices I have ever seen including caviar; fresh seafood and freshly made dessert station. The champagne was flowing -- your glass is filled before it is empty EVERYTIME!!! The brunch is pricey ($90 for 2 of us incl. tip) but worth it!!!

We ate the first night in Aruba, wanted to stay close to hotel. We were in a group of 12 and we treated like we were a a group of 2.
Food was fantastic, even if a little pricey. We would definitely return, as all 12 guests were completely satisfied with their meals

My husband and I stayed at the Hyatt and ate breakfast every morning at the Ruinas del Mar. We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant from the food, service and atmosphere. When we return to Aruba, we will definitely return to the Reuinas. Edna usually sat us every morning, and she was always pleasant and a pleasure to talk to. The wait staff is excellent. For the amount of people who eat at this restaurant, it amazing to think how many pass through their doors and it always looks perfect.

Since we were staying at the Hyatt we hit this place our last night there, the food was really good, we also did the pampered in paradise and the food seemed to also come from the menu, the bass is amazing, nice romantic setting, sit outside, the brunch is also supposed to be amazing.

My wife and I stayed at the HYATT at the end of June 2008. WE ate at this restaraunt on our first night in Aruba. While the atmosphere was excellent the food was simply good. My wife had the sea bass which was undercooked and I had the surf and turf. Nice restaurant overall, but not worth the price in my opinion.

Ate here on June 6th. It's romantic out on the patio with the torches blazing when the sun is down. Food was very good and the service was excellent.

This was always a favorite of ours but we were a little disappointed this time. The food was just not as good as it had been in the past and the service was nearly non-existent until my stepdaughter said something. I don’t know what she said but our champagne glasses were never empty and our dirty plates were promptly removed. I’m going to have to think long and hard about going back there again next year especially when you consider how much they charge.

This is the only restaurant in Aruba I am giving a 10 rating to. The decor, service, and food were all fantastic. This place really has the decor down - its romantic in the evening and has that rustic feel. Servers are very nice and prompt. Food was delicious. To start we had shrimp cocktail and avocado salad - both were good. For entrees, I had sea bass and my bf had the mahi mahi. All dishes come with white beans and a choice of sauce (lemon caper, red pepper, coconut curry...). My sea bass was the best I ever had and I'm a big seafood person and I live in NYC so I know my food. It was so buttery and flaky that I didn't even bother having the sauce. We were so full we didn't have room for dessert, although the menu sounded appealing.

My wife and I usually stay at the Hyatt when we come to Aruba and we have made the Ruinas Del Mar a regular stop. You simply cannot beat the outdoor seating while you dine under the stars and a swan or two is swimming near you table all made more magical with the torchlight lighting. That is atmosphere!
This year we were not staying at the Hyatt because we were staying with family at another resort. This did not stop us from bringing our family here. We again sat outside- I made the reservations a few days in advance... and the night sky was filled with stars.
The menu has a little something for everyone and the four of us had a nice variety- from prime rib to veal to seafood. There was also a very nice selection of wines to accompany our meals.
I would recommend as well capping off the evening with some desert ( a fine assortment) and especially one of the special 'Coffee drinks'... they were exceptional.
I know we will be back again next time around... Thanks

We dined here on our first night. I hadn't made any dinner reservations for this night, as I wasn't sure how we'd feel after travelling to Aruba. So that day, we stopped by the restaurant in mid-afternoon and made a reservation for 8:30.

The restaurant was quite full, both indoors and out. We requested outside dining, and sat by the manmade river coursing through the pool area. Two black swans swam by often while we were eating.

The service was attentive and professional. My friend had the mixed grill and I ordered the bacon wrapped scallops and shrimp over linguine. Both were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. We highly recommend dining here for the ambiance, service and food.
