If you are staying in Oranjestad you simply must try this awesome restaurant! My wife and I ate at City Lounge four times during our visit, simply because of you tasteful and decadent everything was. Some of the highlights were the grouper sandwich, salmon sandwich, tuna sandwich and vegetarian quesadillas. The sandwiches all feature fresh baked bread that is amazing.... More

Because we arrived during the World Cup, the restaurant service was slow by American standards, but it was worth the wait. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and perfectly portioned. It is near the water downtown, and seems very metropolitan. I would go back again.

Very good food at a reasonable price, great view of the boats/water, nice atmosphere, and very convenient to shopping. Many choices of main courses to fit a variety of tastes, and nice desserts to enjoy. My choice is usually seafood, and the Chef did it well. Recommend it!

Live music on the water. Great drinks with plenty of what you require. Yummy desserts to satiate any appetite. Miljke was sweet, friendly and have great advice. Wonderful place to people watch and get some peace at the end of a busy day!

Cilo is a great place to have a wonderful meal. We make it a point to eat at Cilo's at least 1 time during each Aruba vacation. Must try the mushroom/cheese dip on the appetizer menu!!!

We have gone to this restaurant for several years when going to Aruba. My husband enjoys the BLTs and the Tuna Salad sandwiches. The service is excellent and is usually provided by a Dutch student studying in Restaurant services from the Netherlands. Always enjoyable outdoor seating. Watching the fishing boats come in with their fresh catch of the day right... More

Food was decent, but a bit pricey compared to other places we dined in when compared against the quality we received at the others. The waiter was EXTREMELY slow, and I can't emphasize that enough. When we got there, he said it would be a minute for him to clear a table for us to sit - there were only... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch before heading over to the Atlantis sub tour. Our waitress was very nice and gave us some of the best service that we received while dining on the island this past week. My wife got the Capri Pesto grilled cheese and I had a cheeseburger. We both enjoyed our meals. And the... More

Great restaurant along the downtown marina. All coffee, including decaf, would appear to be brewed as a cappuccino, tasty in a demi cup. Right sized and right priced meals. Sister shop to Taste of Belgium.
