Went there last night. Located in the Rennaissance Mall, right opposite the Government offices. Easy parking.
Great job! Looks wonderful. Lots of attention to detail. Like the folding glass doors as the outside walls. Unfortunately, they let bugs in.
Mostly inexperienced, but they more than compensated for that by their warm welcome, enthusiasm, and extreme helfulness. Hopefully our tip reflected that. CILO - please give them a little more training & support.
Staff need to be more observant. 3 sand flies in my house merlot. Didn't bother to send it back, but will next time. Sangria was great - perfectly balanced by the fresh fruit.
Main courses (salmon & stir fry chicken) were great! Wonderful value for money. Congratulations to the chef & kitchen staff.
Then the "kicker" - suggest they don't even mention the salad served with the meal - pathetic apology! Vegetables were OK, but not stellar.
Shared a Triamasu for dessert - great!
Restaurant seems poorly ventilated. Could smell smoke from one guy lighting a cigarette at the bar. OK - I quit 3 weeks ago & am just getting a sense of smell. What was the larger issue was that the wait staff were allowed to smoke behind the bar - added to the smell. Suggest that CILO only allows them to smoke outside.
Value for Money
Save the best until last. OUTSTANDING FOR ORANJESTAD!!!!!!! Congrats CILO - well worth the visit. Just over $50 for the two of us including 2 glasses of wine & the tip.
We'll be back!
