Good little cafe for western/indonesian food

I have been to this restaurant several times over a my last few visits to Gili, mainly in the afternoon for a spot of lunch. Their western food is pretty good compared to other places on the island in particular the Carbonara which they manage to make without scrambling the egg which has happened... read more

Not much in terms of ambiance or atmosphere (we sat outside facing the night market area, which is deserted in the day), but great authentic indonesian dishes such as Nasi & Mie Goering at very cheap prices ($3-$6 each). Worth a stop for a quick lunch on Gili T!

Another beachfront restaurant on Gili T serving bland uninspiring food. Both the western and local were disappointing. The service was also lacking. It's one good selling point is its decor and setup right on the beach.

Been to Cafe Gili for breakfast it was ok. Then back during the night for seafood feasting. It was my last night in Gili so was worried it might hit off my budget. The staff were really nice to help me calculate the prices of the seafood I had selected including the 15% tax. The seafood were delicious! The prawns... More

We have been to the Gili Islands now 8 times and this is one of our favourite spots for a cold drink on the beach or delicious evening meal. The service is great and the staff are friendly and always up for a chat.

Very nice restaurant right on the beach, wide selection of salads and sandwiches for a quick lunch or a snack during the day. We have seen that expose fish and kebabs but we never tried. The prices are absolutely average but the service is a bit slow.

Nice location by the beachfront, decent food, average desserts. Nothing exceptional but a good place to stop by if you are looking to relax and take a break from the snorkelling and scuba diving!

The pineapple crumble dessert is actually just a glass of whip cream with slices of pineapples, where's the good old biscuit/crumbled part??!! The meat on the beef kebab was hard and barely chewable, but it did come with a good sauce and crispy well seasoned french-fries. The grilled paprika was also good with the chilli & olive oil. Perhaps we... More

the seafood (lobster, fish and prawn) are delicious and the cold coconut drinks are delighted while you're relaxing by the beach. Then enjoy a fine coffee and listen to the music of the surf
