Ruinas Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
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.
If you would like to pay 60 dollars for a buffet of bacon and eggs this buffet is the one for you!
Personally, id rather not spend 60 per person on breakfast. If the buffet was $30 that'd be a different story. 60 dollars USD for breakfast.... I mean come on. Get real Hyatt.
I came here in 2006 and 2011. Both times the food tasted great and the service was top notch. Fast forward 11 yrs later, the service is still top notch, but the food not so much for the price. $119 for 2 ppl sure isn't a bargain, but I expected the food, especially the seafood to be a lot fresher. The best thing there was the mushroom flank steak and the omelette station. The oysters and shrimp looked like it's been sitting for a while. I didn't want to chance a stomach ache so I skipped the oysters oh well, I won't be back,for the bunch anyway.
