Being located at the downtown Marina has its advantages... the fishermen docks right in front of CILO. Our Chef always has the first pick and will treat you every night with a fresh catch of the day. Life is great at CILO!

Nice Simple Lunch

Stopped here for a light lunch. Nice menu and selection of sandwiches, including vegetarian options (the reason we went here). Good fresh breads, especially with garlic butter. I had the watermelon feta salad which was huge - mostly about watermelon, less about "salad" - would be good for sharing... read more

My fiance and I couldn't stay away from this place. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food was excellent and the prices were really good. One of the waitresses we had was Wanyah. She was super sweet, knowledgeable of the menu and very attentive. I recommend getting her as a waitress when you visit. One of the items on... More

Very personable and attentive staff. Wanyah was one of our servers with a lovely smile and very helpful suggestions on the menu. Food and drinks that are well worth the reasonable prices. Great option for dinner or lunch. Personal favorite is the seafood chowder.

It located next to the Renaissance hotel, surrounded by other restaurants and bars. Being there many times, all during lunch time. Staff is very attentive and food is consistent, nothing extraordinary but always good. If you are around the area, after walking is a perfect spot to seat down, relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

The food was good, but nothing out of the world. There was a minor problem with the dish we ordered and they arranged everything and didn't charge any extra. That was good.

Not sure how this gem slips into anything under top ten. Delicious food including fresh mahi with the best mushroom risotto I've had and wrapping up with cheesecake that was beyond tasty! Second time we have been in this week. I'll be back at least once before we leave. And,did we mention the wonderful live music. Perfect!

I love to go to local places to get a feel for the local flare but this place was disappointing. We were met by a lady behind the bar for breakfast who treated us like we were a bother. Our breakfast was $40, $20 of which was tea/ refills. Would not go back.
