My husband and I were staying at the ocean suites and decided to stop by for drinks before we turned it in for the night. The first turnoff was the waitress somehow sold the last shot of Jack Daniels to a patron before us so they were out. They promote wine but only had a 3 or 4 choice selection... More

We tried this restaurant for the 1st time and were presently surprised how good the food was. Though they have a limited dinner menu what they serve is excellent. I had the filet tenderloin which was the best I had on the Island. You could cut it with your fork and cooked to perfection. My wife had the grilled Wahoo... More

Stopped in for lunch again this trip because we had a good experience the last time we were here. Food was good, but the service was Eh. They were out of what I wanted and the sever, while nice, never stopped by to follow up. Prices were typical of the island.

CILO City Lounge is conveniently located at Renaissance Marketplace. I decided to do some bar hopping during happy hour and made this place one of my stops. I ordered the mango margaritas and got two for the price of one at $10. They were prepared perfectly. I spoke with the bartender who is very friendly. This place was the perfect... More

We originally wanted to eat Dutch pancakes, but the nearby restaurant was closed on Mondays, so we went to the CILO lounge instead. It is great for having breakfast outside, watching the cruise tourists and having a great coffee.

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!!

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!
