You can and will lounge around here all day. I also like that it is close to H2O Yoga center, so I'd often enjoy lunch or dinner here after class. The atmosphere keeps you in that peaceful place. For Gili, the prices are reasonable and the food is good.

The food was tasty and made reasonable quickly. I would suggest it and it was very good value for money but in all fairness so are most of the eateries on the island.

After hours of sunbathing, this spot is perfect to get new energy. Their fruit juices are delicious but way better is their food. While is stayed on the safe (and boring) Mie-Goreng side, my BF went for Urap Urap which was mouth-watering. The lemongrass added a good flavor to the dish. Totally recommend to stay here for a while. They're... More

We stayed 8 nights at gili air and kept coming back to this wonderful restaurant. We tried all kinds of dishes and they were always delicious. The prices are comparable to other restaurants on the island but the quality is definitely above average.

I've been on Gili Air now for 10 days, with 6 more to go - this means a rough estimate of 40 meals out, and since I stumbled into this place, a good 6 at Gili Air Santay. My only regrets are not paying $5 for a local SIM for internet (if you need wifi, it comes with a high... More
