We had a prebooked large group for a pre wedding day super. The atmosphere and quality of food were both excellent. The took care of the group and catered to several different requests. It is a wonderful setting and would recommend it to anyone for small or large group outings.

We took a cab from our resort which is afpproximately 30 minutes to restaurant. The cab ride cost $80 plus a tip which we felt was very high. The lobster thermidor and snapper escoveitch were excellent. A bit pricey but worth it. We were hoping to sit at a table near the natural falls but it was raining and had... More

This is a wonderful place to have dinner. We were 1 of 3 tables taken in the whole restaurant. The food was great and the scenery was second to none. The staff was very attentive and the facilities were clean. I would definitely go back and recommend this place for a romantic dinner for two. This place truly is right... More

The food was excellent. We ate under the roof as it had been raining intermittently all day. There was a little shower while we were there. It's very scenic restaurant & the service was good. The only negative thing again is the cost of the taxi to get there.

It is worth a meal at The Ruins if only to have the experience of eating next to a waterfall within a beautiful tropical garden. Fortunately the food is also worth the trip which makes for a very enjoyable evening! The menu is a mix of Jamaican, Asian and fusion choices . There were four of us and we tried... More

We were a group of 13 and we submitted different orders.Overall: food was delicious; very good service; nice atmosphere; a little pricy for us $30 per plate plus beverages and coffee is $5; depending on the meal, you may have a show. We had two shows; one with the filet Mignon and for the dragon fish.

We stopped by this restaurant on the way to Dunns River Falls and the staff was extremely nice, it was affordable for an all-you-can-eat buffet (bar is separate), and the food was good! They had a lot of different choices. The scenery at the restaurant is also great; they have a waterfall, bridge, and beautiful plants and flowers and a... More

My wife and I had our wedding and reception at The Ruins last week. The ceremony and reception could not have been better! We took a cruise down to Jamaica and our boat was 2 1/2 hours late but Nicalee and the rest of the staff at the The Ruins were extremely accommodating of this unfortunate reality. Our reception was... More
