When we visit Aruba we always find one day to shop downtown. For the second straight year we found Cilo City Lounge for lunch and it was a very welcome respite. Walking in downtown Oranjestad in the midday sun is often tiring. When it's humid it can be overbearing and that's what we had this week when doing our obligatory... More

Stopped here for lunch after our tour rep recommended it. Delicious lunch and not too expensive - a rarity on Aruba. I had the Thai beef salad which was delicious; so tasty. My friend had Fish salad - which consisted of fresh tuna, grouper and smoked salmon.

The food was good; service was poor. The outside eating area is always a plus. I'm not sure if it's an Aruba thing but they were slow motion. I had to come in to pay my bill and get my food wrapped. When I walked in, the waitress was parlaying with a customer shooting the breeze. I had been sitting... More

Went here for dinner tonight with my parents and son. My dad and I shared the Brie app and the Alaskan Crab croquettes. I wish now I hadn't shared with him because I could have eaten them both myself. My mother got the Filet Steak with the stroganoff sauce, it was awesome, my dad got the salmon which he inhaled...

When staying at the Renaissance hotel in downtown Aruba, be sure to stop by this wonderful place for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks! Been here 20 times and its incredibly pleasant always. Happy hour is five to seven with live music to enjoy! Outside seating and inside airconditioning for your comfort. Try a cappuccino here, very good. Starbucks next door.... More

we always eat here at least twice while in Aruba and while the breakfast and dinners are very good and deserve their own review we find the deserts to be unbelievably delicious. Fried cheese cake, apple pie, and an assortment of deserts that are always fresh and delicious. We went twice at dinner time just to eat deserts and have... More

We were initially going to the Dutch Pancake House, but the line was ridiculously long. Cilo was completely empty, but we were starving so we decided to give it a try. It was great! Each order of coffee comes with a homemade chocolate chip cookie that was so yummy. The prices were very reasonable and the menu was a good... More

We were fortunate to have chosen this restaurant and be served by one of the best people, Anna. The bar has invented a menu of specialty cocktails. Had great times there.

First time for lunch with a group of 5, nice menu, different choices. For lunch I chose the Shanghai wrap. Food arrived pretty fast, the wrap was delicious, only recommendation I would have is to have it sliced in two, it came sliced in 4 pieces, and the meat was falling out of the two middle pieces. Other than that... More

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!
