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!

LIstened to some live music and had a drink

After dinner one night, we were returning to our hotel and heard the music at this bar/restaurant. We went in and had a drink (the bartender made me a terrific old fashioned) and listened to a pretty good duo (woman singer and guy guitar). People were very nice.

The food was good this time. We find the food here hit and miss. Sometimes it is very good, and other times it is not so great.

Menu is very extensive and the food is fresh. Service could be a bit faster but it is top for the expectations at this location. Taste is as good as it can be and price is decent for the area where it is located.

CILO is one of our favorite lounges on the island. We frequent it when we stay at the Renaissance. The staff is attentive. The drinks are delicious as is the food. They make a great burger! We also enjoy the fact that they have musicians playing most nights.

Very basic menu. Food was average and portions were small. Not many breakfast options but do serve a full menu during breakfast hours. Good for a quick bite.

Probably the best mojito I have ever had in my life- the tropical mojito. For lunch we shared the beef tip salad and a tower sandwich. Both were really fresh and a good portion. The do have outdoor seating but the view is nothing special. I would recommend it for the drinks and food. Extensive menus.
