Right on the beach; just a stones throw from the reef for snorkelling. Great fresh fish & service & not too expensive. Staff helpful, attentive and fish was expertly cooked. Thanks ++

loved the food and relaxed vibe- I stayed there for lunch and was able to use the day bed as it wasnt busy. I read for the afternoon and they didnt seem to mind as long as you order a drink now and then. Snorkelling straight out from the restuarant was great- I even spotted a turtle

We had a meal at this place and the food was really good, with reasonable price. It's located on the east side of the island, in a relatively quiet area. The staff is very friendly also.

We liked this place a lot. Santay is located a bit further from the busiest beach section in Gili Air but easy to find to. We ate really good food here and enjoyed the experience all around very much!

I went to dinne at Santay and chose a fresh unicorn fish. It was very good, light flavour, served with steamed rice and vegetables (a little overcooked). I recommend Santay restaurant.

We've been there for dinner and where absolutely blown away by the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. We did not share the experience of the here often mentioned unprofessionell service, Altough we waited a while for the food. We took this as a sign that they cook actually fresh, and that suspicion got actually confirmed... More

Great value for what you get. The massaman curry with fish was incredibly delicious. The empanada was large and enough for a meal by itself. The service staff were very friendly and played with my infant daughter. We sat overlooking the beautiful beach.
