Ruinas del Mar, in the Hyatt Aruba, looks like a Caribbean castle surrounded by a moat with swans and sea turtles. Arrive around 6:30 to get a waterside table for the most romantic ambiance. The shrimp coctail appetizer was fantastic, and the catch of the day moist and beautifully prepared. The staff is island friendly and attentive. The restaurant sits... More

We had been regulars here until a few years ago when the menu changed. It has changed for the better, for us, and we decided to try again. My wife requested a non-menu item--vegetable plate--and the waiter didn't even block, no problem--broccoli, asparagus, carrots, and tomato. I had filet. After the order, the waiter came back to see if the... More

We have been dining at this restaurant since they opened in 1990. This was the first time that we were slightly disappointed. The restaurants at the Hyatt have been revamped and redecorating has taken place, but the Ruinas del Mar still has the same basic layout with outside dining seating being at a premium. It wasn't all that busy but... More

This is Hyatt's little jewel. The terrace surrounds a pond with black swans and fish and a beautiful fountain! The service is very good and the food is o.k. You come here to experience tranquility after a long hard day at the beach! It is truly a delightful way to end your day.

This was the first meal in Aruba for my wife and I. We were aware it was going to be on the $$ side. The location is in the Hyatt Resort. Very interesting layout as we ate outside by the relfecting pool with the carp and black geese. We both had fish--Grouper and Mahi Mahi. Cooked to perfection. Bread basket... More

This meal was a complete delight from the cuisine itself, to the wonderful, friendly service, to the lovely atmosphere. I am not a huge fish lover, but I tried the grouper with an almond topping and it was absolutely incredible. Aruba is a wonderful place to visit, but this meal is enough to make me want to go back.

Ruinas del mar in the hyatt aruba is a beautiful restaurant. The food is ordinary continental and relatively high prices. The service was very good and the food adequate. I did resent having to pay $15.00 for parking

Excellent service and good food. The brunch is a must. Omelets and waffles made to order. We really love it. We stayed at the hyatt last summer and found their service to be superb. At night the ambience is inviting and relax. Excellent for family with children.
