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

We are staying at the Renaissance Ocean Suites and this restaurant is in the mall in front. Very average breakfast, not bad but not outstanding. Beware if you ask for a 2nd cup of coffee because they charge you. Wound up spending $10 American dollars on four very small coffees. Go to the Dutch Pancake House in the same mall.... More

While traveling in Aruba we agreed to try two new restaurants and this one was it. We enjoyed breakfast. The New York breakfast and the Meatlovers breakfast were both scrumptious! Plenty to eat and well priced. The Omelette was the best I've had on the Island in 15 years. The price for both meals were average of what it cost... 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!
