Cilo used to be a very trendy spot for locals and tourists. Last time I was there I found it to be expensive and just below average. Waitstaff is friendly and their coffee is still good... Ask for their homemade fresh cookies to go with it.

Just walking by, we were attracted by the ambiance! It's a pretty swanky place. A server came out to greet us and show us the specials board. FRESH WAHOO with a pistachio crust caught my husbands eye!! I was interested in their Shrimp risotto, also a "special" dish! The server was very young but, sweet! He was attentive and when... More

Came here for lunch and was attracted by menu posted outside. Turns out they only had a limited menu but after much discussion we were given the full menu, though options on side dishes were limited. Food was slightly above average, and took a long time to get. Fish and Chips were actually fried small grouper pieces (no batter) and... More

What we enjoy the most about this place is its location which is on a busy walkway which allows you to take in the crowd that passes by and just relax. Along with that comes some fairly good food, good service and reasonable prices - all combining to make for a good experience. Variety of daily specials never ceases to... More

Would have been better if the a/c was working. Cheese sandwiches and Indonesian chicken soup were delicious. Prices fair and right next to downtown marina. Don't forget to walk around marina area to see the lizards!!

Enjoyed a full breakfast, eggs, bacon, sausage and toast for $10.75 Surprised and disappointed they charge for refills on coffee, though.

Servers very nice, atmosphere chill, food okay. Price fair. I would go explore elsewhere. It's not that there's anything wrong, it's just that it's okay.

This restaurant has inside and outside seating. I love to sit outside where you can see the boat dock. It has a simple straight forward menu. The wraps are good. The menu does have a Dutch influence. Prices are reasonable. Service is always good.

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!
