Well presented, delicious food with Ruby's twist. Best food we have found on the island. Try the beef rendang and the spring rolls. Great hosts.

Ruby's café is a lovely little place to visit with friends or family for dinner. The staff is very friendly, always smiling and English speaking, and will do what it takes to make your visit worth the walk into the island. Prices are definitely fair, especially when considering the quality and quantity of the food you order. My recommendation for... More

If you're looking for an indication of the quality of food at this place you need not look any further than the number of regulars it attracts. Most of the clientele here seemed to be repeat customers, and on last night's showing its really no surprise. We were greeted warmly and sat at a lovely candlelit table. It's a relatively... More

My wife and I went to Rubys again this second visit to Gili Air and Ruby does not disappoint. This time I think my highlight was the Banana spring role, although its all good. Jeremy is a great host, go visit and see for yourself

Great spot close to the beach but still relatively well secluded on the back streets of Gili Air. My girlfriend and I visited here for lunch one day and were greeted by Ruby's English husband, who was extremely friendly and provided some great conversation. Although the menu was pretty limited (apparently due to supply shortages) the food we ate was... More

This was our favourite restaurant that we went to whilst on Gili Air. Ruby's was tucked out of the way down a side street which adds to its charm. The menu isn't very big but great authentic options. Between our group of four, two of us had a beef rendang, one had green curry and one had a chcken dish.... More

Loved Chill Out Bar. Stayed 5 days on Gili Air. Highly recommend CHILL OUT and SCALLYWAGS and MOWIES for fresh fish grilled dinner and/or lunch and beach swimming and snorkeling and relaxing with a juice or lunch or Bintang and using wifi. RUBYS off the beach and up a side road was favorite for overall food. And, if you are... More
