We ate here our last night at the hotel. We sat outside on the patio. It was lovely and set a great mood for dinner. The food was pricey but delicious and the service was wonderful. Definitely, check it out if you're staying there.

The restaurant has a romantic atmosphere with great service. We felt waited on all the time. The prices are high and I wouldn't say that the fish or meat was perfect, but it was good! Therefor a 4. I would recommend this restaurant for those who wants a quite, romantic night with great service and are willing to spend a... More

Great atmosphere, delicious food and good service. Top both Sangrias! Highly recommend it. We went there specifically for lobster night. Started off with some delicious crab cakes. We each got different lobster- grilled, broiled and Tanquilut (I might be misspelling it) but we were all impressed. Their bread was to die for! Worth every penny! Tip is already included!

My husband and I ate here 13 years ago and I remember a wonderful dinner in a very cool atmosphere (we weren't staying at the hotel at the time), so I couldn't wait to bring my family back. If you are staying at the Hyatt (which we did this time), this is where they serve breakfast, so it kind of... More

We spent a week in Aruba and ate at many of the highly touted restaurants on the island - although a bit pricey, the meal we had at Ruinas del Mar was by far the best we ate all week -- you get what you pay for!

we always sit outside, by the lagoon. Beautiful and peaceful. Surrounded by swans, koi, and turtles. Food always well done and staff always accommodating. My wife always orders a non-menu item(veggie plate)and has never been a problem. Steak very tender and bread are small loafs, usually warm from the oven

Located in the Hyatt this restaurant has great food and a very cool atmosphere. Ask to sit outside by the water.

In Aruba, we generally avoid hotel restaurants since there are so many other available choices, but I would make an exception for Ruinas. We tried this place specifically for the lobster tail, and were not disappointed - the single tail was huge (I would guess at least 12 ounces). Prices are not cheap, but nothing in Aruba is. They do... More
