Nice food

We ate lunch here (starter, main, desert, coffee, juices). It was nice. Staff were ok. All in all an average gili air lunch time experience.

We had a good time at Rubys cafe. I had the beef rendang, and it was so good! Prices are about 40-50.000 for a main course, so fairly enough. Not exactly cheap indonesian food though. Only big downside was a very moody and pretty rude waiter serving us. The owner was very nice though.

The food was good, the service a bit slow but over all a nice experience. I had the spaghetti aglio e olio and it was good, not the best ever but nice. Chololate salami was a nice dessert. Recommended!

We have eaten here several times during our Gili Air visit and nothing else compares. The food is exceptional and made by a chef (Ruby) who takes absolute pride in her work. The starters are to tasty to resist but be warned - they're huge and you need room for dessert! We tried several dishes - the croquettes and spring... More

Although my girlfriend and me went only here once; it was great and I'm glad we tried it. The couple running the restaurant very friendly and provided good service. It was also nice to see that the owner was really helping his staff to improve; in a positive way (giving compliments, advice, and explaining). Moreover, it was popular but not... More
