“Good bar in great location”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Looking for just a beer or cocktail in downtown Oranjestad then this is your place. You will get a quick, efficient, friendly service for breakfast or just for a drink - we enjoyed both. Part of the renaissance mall overlooking the harbour area which has traditional local fishing boats and charters alongside luxurious yachts. Anything you want off the menu is apparently served all day from breakfast and sandwiches through to main meals which will suit all appetites.

“CILO City Lounge”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We had breakfast and dinner here and enjoyed both. Breakfast was the usual fare and was very good. For dinner, I had a steak cooked to perfection and very tender. The service on both occasions was very good an the wait staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Perfect affordable light lunch!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Lazing in Orangestad after our cancelled Tiara flight,we had there a quick and good lunch.Looking around we saw people eating appetizers that looked great,I ordered 2 but the friendly waitress advised us to take only one and it was enough for the two of us...
The tasty special snack was made of wraps,chicken pilons,fried fish and Brie toasts ($13,50!!)Good desserts(homemade pie...)
Great service,friendly ambience

“Creative creations”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We were walking around in the area and the Renaissance concierge recommended this place for a casual lunch. Because it was too hot for us to sit outdoors, a feeling apparently many others had that day, we waited a while to get seated indoors. This restaurant has a very creative menu and would definitely be worth a visit for dinner although I suspect reservations would probably be required. Outdoor seating is larger than the indoor space and it would be pleasant sitting outdoors with a view of the boats docked in the marina.

Our meal started off wonderfully with an appetizer called Glasgow Beef Pastry. It was beautifully presented and very delicious. It made us wish it was our entrée instead of a shared appetizer. Both of our unusual sandwiches were just as tasty. One, the Nutty Paris sandwich, was brie with walnuts and honey on toasted French bread. The other, the Jakarta sate sandwich, was a grilled chicken with peanut sauce on toasted French bread. As we were dining, we noticed beautiful presentation of other dishes as well.

Service was quick and good. Will revisit on a return trip.

“Great Restaurant!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for lunch here when we first arrived to Aruba, and we loved it! The drinks and food were awesome! There was a gorgeous view of boats and water. Our waiter, Jon William, took great care of us. Will definitely visit again!
