A word from Ruinas Del Mar
Ruinas del Mar, “Ruins by the Sea”, is Hyatt Regency Aruba’s signature restaurant offering contemporary cuisine in an open-air environment. Guests are invited to enjoy menu items such as fresh seafood and steaks, hearth oven specialties, and a display of multiple food stations offered during breakfast, Sunday brunch, and special events. The design of Ruinas del Mar pays homage to several original Aruban architectural elements including caliche stone and the use of water in design.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We went for the ambiance, and that made it worth it. But both our entreés were so bland/unpleasant tasting that it nearly ruined the experience. We had the pumpkin pasta and the prawn pasta. Also the harshly bright light coming from the lanterns on the tables nearly ruined the ambiance. It seemed so odd to have nice warm light coming from the torches, and then harsh, industrial lighting too. We finally hid our lantern under the table."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at Ruinas Del Mar. You certainly can't beat the setting within the gardens of the Hyatt Resort. The food was very good. Our party enjoyed everything from soup and salad through dessert. Stand outs were the beef tenderloin entree and strawberry shortcake dessert. Loved the menus that lit up when opened, since we dined outdoors, at night. Our servers were wonderful - very pleasant and attentive."

  • "We have dined at Ruins Del Mar several times over the past 15 years and this visit the food was not up to par. We have already dined at several local restaurants and this is at the bottom of our list so far. The food was very oily and over cooked. Need some attention to the menu!!"

  • "The Hyatt is a famous on Palm Beach for its black swans that swim beside you while you dine. They were imported to Aruba for Australia. The food is superb we had the Classic Duo with filet and lobster combo, mashed potatoes and carrots absolutely excellent. Service is impeccable as always, we have been going there now for 15 years annually. If you really want a romantic environment, that's the place."

  • "every year (or so it seems) we go to ARUBA and meet up with friends we have been seeing for years. everyone has their favorite restaurants for dinner. BUT, when our group wants a lazy Sunday with good food, drinks and friends--we always have at least one Sunday Brunch at Ruinas Del Mar. some of us go every Sunday--a nice day out of the sun. the staff is fantastic."

  • "The food was excellant, but the experience was tarnished by two other issues. Our server was pompous, acting as if he was doing us a favor by serving us. The other issue is length and process we were put through to buy a gift cert. We had to go to the hotel clerk and he didn't know how to do it and called a manager. After about 15 minutes including the need to show my ID the manager asked if I wanted to cancel it. If I wasn't doing it for a friend I certainly would have. I got certs. at Aqua Grill and Azzurro that took only a couple of minutes and no ID requirement. Over the years we have dined often at the Ruinas, but based on our last two occasions this will be the last."

  • "Was beautiful , everything was great but a little to pricey for what they offered. Maybe because it's part of the hotel. other than that everything was great!"

  • "Have had brunch here many times in the past and loved it! Did not come last year so found lots of changes! I was disappointed the prices have gone up and the choices have gone down! I still enjoyed it, but miss the way it used to be, had thought of going again this Sunday, but not sure now? Isabel Soltar"

  • "The restaurant is beautiful, outdoor seating has a great view and with water surrounding the seating area, swans, fish, and turtles can be seen from each table. Very little lighting outside, but menus are back-lit for easy nighttime viewing. Waitstaff was not bad, but was slow and waiter stood impatiently only a few feet from the table after our bill was presented. Menu was good, with many selections and some daily specials. Wine list was good also, and priced reasonably."

  • "The food was excellent. I had white clam bisque for an appetizer, my husband had Scallop appetizer that were absolutely HUGE. I had a fettucine, shrimp entree with local sauteed tomatoes and asparagus....yum. Husband had a filet with lobster pairing and it was so tender I could not belive it was beef. Be prepared as it is VERY pricey"
