This dinner was a celebration of our 30th anniversary. Three out of four of us ordered the grass fed hamburger and truffle fries. It was cooked to perfection and delicious. We were seated by the koi pond and the service was the best!
Chilean sea bass !! Was delicious and staff so friendly
They provided the most delicious “happy honeymoon” dessert
Everything was great accept we were disappointed that a couple that booked their 25th wedding anniversary dinner (and put that in the reservation) a month in advance was given the worst table. We had to ask to be moved to a better table.
Not many buffet options for the money. Tables were sticky. Service was excellent despite the small portions the buffet servers give.
Honeymoon dinner. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and did a fantastic job overall! Loved the surroundings with the swan and koi fish pond. We both had the recommended Sea bass and it was excellent. We will return when we go back to Aruba.
Courteous and solicitous staff. Very friendly. Delicious food.
Great variety on food, busy day, service was not very attentive, experience great, price reasonable.
Wonderful menu. Tres Leches for dessert a must. Ambience was perfect to celebrate our 39th Anniversary!
Randy our server was great. Wonderful personality and great suggestions and funny too👏👏👏
Fish was over cooked but we chose to finish and not send back due to curfew. Location great and staff was very nice. Seems as though food needs some work, however
It was a nice atmosphere to sit outside on the lagoon at the Hyatt. The menu was limited but the food was very good. I would return. Very nice location
Great food and service. Was very impressed the attentiveness of the wait staff. Relaxing atmosphere to dine in.
Wonderful food and service
One couldn't find a more beautiful setting to dine in Aruba. The property at The Hyatt Aruba is meticulously maintained and Ruinas Del Mar borders a lovely koi pond where a black swan resides. The property, setting and menu prices most certainly create an expectation that an exceptional dining experience was in store.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Both my wife and I wondered if the lack of attention to our table was part of the restaurant's COVID protocols. If so, none of that was stated in writing or by our server upon greeting.
We ordered bottled water, of which we poured ourselves. We asked for another bottle after our glasses were empty. We poured our own wine ($105 bottle). After being done with our appetizers for close to 10 minutes, I chose to clear them myself. When doing so, the server assistant vocalized something to me in a negative tone. (I wasn't listening after it wasn't an apology).
I realize that this sounds very "snobby". What's the big deal, right? EXPECTATION. If a restaurant is going to charge $85 for Surf & Turf, $42 for scallops, $37 for a lobster appetizer, and a steak entree for our 11yr old, (all of which we ordered)...the guest SHOULD NOT HAVE TO POUR WATER OR CLEAR PLATES, end of story. The guest should certainly not have to hear anything other than an apology from an employee after performing their job.
By the way, the food was excellent, presented in a very inviting way. That got lost however because the staff phoned it in. Instead of serving their guests, the staff was leaning on the pillars and phoning it in. We wont be back. The 15% auto gratuity was not earned.
Very nice service , great server. The food quality and variation was good. The orange juice is the best!
Beautiful location, excellent service and wonderful food.
My husband and I checked into the hotel at 6pm. We were not expecting anything special. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Thank you for making the night special.
Was a great experience even though the Covid rules were in place. The staff did everything to make the dining en pleasant experience. Thanh you Hyatt Sraff
The food was delicious and the atmosphere so romantic. I had the salmon and my husband had scallops.
Food and service was outstanding - every course delicious as well as wine selection
Do yourself. Favor and have dinner here
I always love coming here when I come to Aruba. Great ambiance and I love the food here! You should absolutely check it out!
Chicken was dry and service non-existent
This was our splurge night. The service and view were spot on. We were u happy with the menu changes.
I have a screen shot of the menu from last year (we LOVED our meal last year). The photo shows the Surf and turf for $30 less than this year. I realize it’s a different type of beef but traditional Surf and Turf is filet and lobster.
We were very disappointed.
Also the shrimp cocktail was a big disappointment. They were tiny arm tasteless.
The wine was good and our other food items perfectly good.
Service was personable and efficient
Food was delicious
Our family had a fine experience
Happy to be enjoying during these times .
Both my wife and I received the filet mignon and it was outstanding.. cooked perfect
New Year’s Eve
Excellent ambiance and service. We were not thrilled with our food choices — probably just personal preference.
A fantastic restaurant with a beautiful view. Service and meals were outstanding!
Everything was delicious , the restaurant itself is beautiful and the staff took care of our every need
Nice breakfast but no Bottomless mimosas due to COVID. ENJOYABLE! great service and good food.
Was my first time at the restaurant
The Food and Service was great
The restaurant is a very nice place , very nice setups.
Love Love Love how you can dine outside next to the pound where you can see the fishes .
The only thing that im very disappointed in , is that i made the reservation online as requested. I inserted its my husband bday , and for the night at the end i had would like for the staff to sing happy birthday for him or do something special for him, but nothing has been done. When we arrived at the restaurant i try to give the host a heads up without my husband noticing by telling her i made the reservation online and her answer was its ok its not busy. I thought maybe she would a still go and see the reservation but she did not . So on that side i was a little disappointed with the restaurant/staff . .... other then that everything was great
I see why we were the only ones in the restaurant. The only thing that wasn’t awful
Was the spring roll, and that’s because anything fried is delicious. The sal
On seemed microwaved, I couldn’t finish it. The “flourless chocolate cake” was definitely microwaved and smelled like boxed cake. I didn’t waste calories on that one at all. It reminded me of a lava cake, no effort. The service was good though, not their fault the heads don’t think hiring a chef is worth it.
Decent experience. Clearly I ordered the wrong thing. It was okay, but sure not worth what it cost. The place itself is very nice and I'm sure that they have good dishes that I need to try next time.
Came here during our honeymoon, I had been before so I wanted my husband to try it. Service was great! Food was as amazing as I remember. Thank you all so much!
Most of the restaurant was closed . We are in a entryway. Would not return until restaurant is opened
The steaks were fabulous, as was the service. Nice ambiance.
It was just perfect!
Everything was great! The service, the meal, and amazing atmosphere. Five Stars for sure!
One of my favorite restaurants in Aruba. Their lamb is spectacular.
