We went here for our last lunch on the island. What a terrible way to end our vacation. We saw people come and go while we waited for our food. The adults were served first, by the time we were finished they were just serving our children. They forgot one of the children's order completely, took until we were ready... More

We went to CILO (since Cuba's Cookin, next door, was not open in time for us to have lunch and catch our flight. We were a party of 13 (but seated at 3 separate tables). We stood around for a while before anyone said "oh, you can sit wherever you want." The restaurant was not crowded and seemed to be... More

We went at around 8 PM on a Wednesday night. They have an eclectic mix of food, and a good and reasonably-priced selection of wine (example, 25-dollar bottles of WA State Chardonnay and French white Sauv. Blanc). Overall the place is good for the price. They had a guitar-voice duo for the evening, and they were fairly good and amenable.... More

Good food, attentive service and wonderful after dinner coffee (with treats)! It's a must go to. My husband and I ate there twice and were pleased both times. They also have great nightly live entertainment.

I had lunch with my family, and while the food was good, the real highlight was dessert. The peach crumble was fabulous. We liked it so much that we went back just to have dessert. The only downside is that as in many places in Aruba they allow smoking inside, so I highly recommend sitting outside to avoid the nuisance... More

We needed to get some breakfast before an early morning fishing trip, and the only thing open anywhere near the dock was Cilo. It looked overpriced, but we were pleasantly surprised at the great pricing, excellent service, and delicious breakfast. The coffee was stout, and perfectly so. Will definitely return when downtown.

The food was average. The service was excellent. The worst part was they had a singer who was so loud that we couldn't wait for him to take a break.

We ate breakfast and dinner here and it was great. The service was fantastic and the live music made the experience even better. The outdoor patio sits right off the pier so you can see the water and people watch while enjoying a meal.
