“Excellent place for dinner”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Our meal was wonderful, perfectly prepared, and the portions were nice sizes too. I had a unique salad with kalamata-caper vinaigrette, plus a stuffed zucchini appetizer that were both delicious and equally filling. My date got the NY strip sirloin, with spinach infused mashed potatoes and a lovely mushroom sauce that he couldn't even finish. The restaurant is very nice, the waiters certainly attentive and professional, though it is busy and somewhat noisy. Look for the black swans that swim up to your window while you're eating! The July 4th display outside of our window was perfect timing and quite an elaborate firework show!

“The best Sunday Brunch ever!”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Every time we visit Aruba we make a point to have Sunday brunch at Ruinas del Mar, at the Hyatt. It's the best brunch we've ever had the pleasure to enjoy in a beautiful setting surrounded by stone, water, swans & glass. Great selection of freshly made foods of all kinds: breakfast variety, raw bar, meats, cheeses, desserts, mimosa's - it's all excellent. And every time we go we make sure the our waiter is Jarlins because he is the "icing on the cake" to make us feel at home and welcome. This last trip Elston and Jarlins both took care of us like we were the only guests having brunch. We ate, drank, laughed and enjoyed, while having the best brunch we could ask for on one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. We're already salivating for our next trip!

“Elegant oasis in a resort setting”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Ruinas del Mar is the elegant restaurant for upscale dining at the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort and Casino. Although it is the friendly al fresco dining destination for wonderful daily breakfasts and Sunday Champagne Brunch, it is truly a romantic and serene spot for fine dining in the evening. The black swans, waterfalls, koi, and sea turtles in the manmade pond add to the unique ambience. Wonderful food and service, choice of seafood, steaks and chops. A destination dinner when in Aruba.
