Charming restaurant with a view

The decor has changed but the food is still very good. The price is a little above average. The service is always prompt and servers courteous.

Great food & quality, pricey, but worth it! Loved the lighted menus., romantic atmosphere. The fishes and the swans were a perfect addition to the already mysterious dark, myan-like ambiance. We had lamb chops, Kansas steak, a deconstructed asparagus, olives, Capicola salad, little french baguettes, the creme brulee, a mixed drink, glass of wine and a sambuca for a night... More

Could've been better for the amount of money I spent. The drinks were weak too. The service was very attentive though.

We visited this restaurant inside the Hyatt on two different occasions. The first was a buffet for Father's Day which had incredible, mouthwatering delectable food for anyone's palate. There was an array of seafood, beef, chicken, veal, lamb and more. Salads were delicious and you could feasibly have an entire plate with just awe inspiring deserts. The second time was... More

I had Sunday Brunch here on 07/12/2015. The selection of foods was extensive and the Mimosas kept flowing. A little on the pricy side but if you are looking for a good selection and a great atmosphere, you can't beat this.

My husband & I were walking through the Hyatt Regency Aruba when we came across this beautiful romantic restaurant inside, Ruinas del Mar. We did not have reservations however this was not a problem as we were sat right away at a table right along the water to enjoy seeing the beautiful black swans & fish in the Coy pond.... More

The Hyatt is so classic! We made reservations thru opentable for 8pm for 3 adults, Saturday night. We arrived on time and were seated immediately at a fabulous table outside overlooking the pond with huge black swans and had a great view of the 4th of July fireworks. We started with a Goose martini, Cabernet and a Chill draft. They... More

Food was just ok and did not match the high cost. We'd been there several years ago and it's definitely gone down hill. It's a shame since the restaurant is in such a beautiful hotel.

We usually don't like restaurants in our hotels. This was a nice surprise. Excellent steak and lamb chops; healthy salads. Nice atmosphere

Enjoyed a nice dinner - all you can eat pasta on Wednesday evening. The staff were very friendly and attentive, coming over often to make sure we were okay and our glasses were filled. Enjoyed a couple of drinks on the house, red wine and a nice glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. The salad bar was well stocked with... More
