Ruinas Del Mar Ratings and Reviews
Worst meal we had in Aruba. Overpriced. Two of the 3 meals were sent back and third could have easily been sent back. Cold overcooked steak, lobster tail that was rubber and second stake that was barely cooked but was asked for for med well. Waitress was overwhelmed. Another table beside us did not send their meals back but both had steaks that they did not eat.
We have been coming to Ruinas del Mar for many years. We have noticed that the prices keep going up but the quality of food can't keep pace. There are now much more reasonably priced alternatives in Aruba with similar ambience, and unfortunately we'll probably be going there from now on.
Always have Sunday brunch here when in Aruba. High quality food, great staff and nice location at the Hyatt. Pricey, but all good brunches are nowadays. Usual breakfast fare along with carving stations and raw bar with sushi. Better than any other place that we've been too in the area.
We went for Sunday brunch and there were four people in our party. The food was excellent and so was the wait staff. The only complaint was that there were a lot of children running around and no one was watching them. They have a waterfall within the entrance and the children were all standing on the wall and at one point it looked like a child was going to fall in. I actually got up and said something to the parents. I think that the waiters or whoever is in charge should say something to parents about watching their children. After paying a nice amount of money for our meal I really didn't want to see anyone get hurt or blood splattered all over the place. It seems like the locals just let their children run rampid without disciplining them.
The sunday brunch at Ruinas del Mar is supposed to be the place to be. It was a little overpriced, but the selection was vast. Service was lacking as there seemed to be a lot going on. Ask for everything you need when you're first seated, it may be your only chance. Overall, a decent experience. Would try it again and lower my expectations.
While vacationing in Aruba, we had the pleasure of dining at Ruinas Del Mar in the Hyatt Hotel. We hadn't been there in a few years and I don't know why we waited so long to return. Such a beautiful restaurant (especially the outdoor area by the swan pond). The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. Each dish was presented beautifully and described by our waiter as it was placed before us. My husband ordered the red snapper and I ordered the filet mignon/lobster tail combo. We ended our meal with a vanilla bean brulee. Perfect evening!
My wife and I were in Aruba for our Honeymoon 34 yrs ago so we came back last week for our anniversary. This was one of many great restaurants we dined at. It was romantic and enjoyable seeing the black swans and coy fish in the pond right next to our table on their patio. Our meal was excellent and service was great as well.
Service was impeccable we had a main server and an assistant server for water, bread, etc. I ordered the surf and turf, my boyfriend had the lamb. Both were excellent! We were celebrating my birthday, which was noted in the reservations and they comped a coconut cake as dessert - equally scrumptious! Thanks for such a great dining experience on our first night in Aruba!
