Sea bass was the best this week
Service is alway excellent
We alway sit by the black swans section. We reserve ahead for 6:30-7 PM that way we are outside. Very quite & romantic.
Have been here 5 times prior- always makes the list. After dinner go up one level and listen to the live music or hit the casino. Nice walk back to the Marriott

Extremely overpriced . Breakfast just around the corner from the hotel is way tastier and way cheaper. Don’t bother unless you are willing to pay to watch the fish in the pond with some sea turtles and a black swan.

Excellent with food allergies. We had guests with dairy, gluten, and citrus allergies dining with us. The server never missed a beat, called out the chef, and everyone was happy with their meals. Highly recommend.

Went here for brunch as we have for years. While the quality has been going downhill it is pretty much bottoming out. The omelette station line is opposite from where it should run so that all of the breakfast self serve items get caught up in the line and while the woman preparing the omelette is good she is so so slow that the line took forever. Easy fix by management.

The lunch foods were just okay. The prepared dishes were bland and luke warm. The carving station food was actually cold as just under a lamp. Sushi was poor as were the desserts. Looked and tasted like they were bought at a supermarket or box store.

My wife actually complained to a manager who did nothing and said that they would tell the chef and get back to us. I won’t hold my breath. We were totally disappointed and will never go back to this brunch. The worst part of all was paying the $117 bill.

Perfectly cooked, flavorful steak, great service and table by lagoon with black swans gliding by, flickering candles, and soft background music, what more could one ask for?

We were there for brunch. Food was very good. More lunch food than breakfast food, so that was a little disappointing because we were there at 9 in the morning. The mimosas are continuous.

Food was okay. My salmon was over cooked. We waited very long time for our entry. One of the waitress ask us to be patient when everyone who came after us had their food already.

Outside by lagoon with swans, koi and turtles. Quiet and peaceful. Wife had off the menu veggie plate which was outstanding. I had steak, which could have been cut with a butter knife and had great flavor. Service was excellent, as always.

Just seems like a ‘dated hotel restaurant ‘ at the Hyatt Regency,apparently this once was a top-notch place , expensive and we get the cheapest crappy wine glassware to drink our ‘fine wine ‘ the bass fish was just awful , both of us described it as that ‘fishy taste ‘ you should not have !!!

We were there to celebrate our anniversary and both the host and waiter kept asking if it was our anniversary or honeymoon. The service was ok but nothing special and the food was rather bland. The best part of the evening was the ambience of the outdoor dining.

We ate here the first night of our stay at the Hyatt. Make sure you reserve for a table out by the Koi pond where you will also see 2 black swans and hear the waterfall. They have specials on different nights so I'd advise that you go there when there's a special. Seems a bit pricey but most restaurants in Aruba are. I got the local Snapper and had it grilled. Very good. This is a great place to go especially because the design of the restaurant and pond make it special.

You can have a much nicer Sunday Brunch for the same money on Aruba. Very disappointed . Nothing special , just another buffet. We will not go back for this over-priced buffet ! Been coming to the island since 1995, and we always try something new and different each year.

The scenery was nice but the food was not the best. We tried the lobster/ filet combo but the filet was covered in an over seasoned sauce and was not tender. The food did not live up to the atmosphere they were trying for. If you are looking for a good date/anniversary restaurant, I would recommend another place.

Went for Sunday brunch and service people just kept walking by as the plates piled up on our table. It took asking 3 times before I could get a cup of coffee . When a large group came in and sat at the table next to us . All of the wait staff focused on them. Was disappointed

Beautiful outdoor seating - large umbrellas provide shade from the hot sun. Excellent food and wide variety. Buffet service but staff was very attentive to beverage and other needs. Billing for Sunday brunch was a little confusing. Two separate charges on hotel bill - one for regular breakfast and second charge for brunch option.
