Top place, highly recommended

We stayed in Gili Air 3 days and we came back to Ruby's every day. We tried other good restaurants in the island but kept coming back here. Food was excellent, from the potato croquettes, the Gado-Gado, chicken sate, the hamburgers (delicious!) and the tasty Indian curry. The staff were very... read more

Just next door to our hotel it was an easy choice but it also turned to be great choice. We had beef, chicken satay- with really tasty peanut sauce and a few more dishes I can't recall right now. But the food was really good, the owner friendly - sometimes also taking orders and chatting with the guests. Plus -... More

Forget about other restaurants on the island and try the blue cheese burger or the chicken lemon wrap. Chicken satays are also amazing. The owners are really nice and the staff is really pro. A big thumb up and a huge thx for these great meals. Prices are between 45k and 60k. :)

We stumbled upon Ruby's cafe as it was on the way to our hotel. Jeremy the friendly British owner, welcomed us in and gave us some recommendations on what was the best for the day, we opted for the Nasi Campur and they graciously made me a vegetarian version. We had this with some fresh fruit juice and enjoyed the... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and have to say that you should try it. They have a outstanding chicken wrap. Some recommendation would be to upgrade the toilet.

Decent food in a pleasent local setting. The host was friendly and welcoming and the prices reasonable. The chicken spring rolls were pretty good, the lemon chicken wrap was tasty while the Indian curry was very uninspiring and one dimensional with no depth of flavour. Is this the no.1 restaurant on Meno for food, probably not, but it is worth... More

Whilst on Gili Air we visited the number 1 restaurant according to TA... It didn't disappoint. We both had Chicken Satay, it was tasty, filling and very reasonably priced! Been number 1 on TA makes it a very popular place, so arrive early or book a table, don't be left disappointed. I really hope since we left they have managed... More

Wonderful richly flavored curries. Everything seems to be created with consideration. Great staff. Best smoothies we had our whole trip. Especially the simplest, but offered no where else, the pineapple lime and mint. So refreshing! And we loved our lunch so much we ordered take out to have for dinner. A must visit when going to Gili Air!

Small restaurant, reduced menu due to staffing that day. Made very welcome by owner, nice guy. Great food. Not fancy but good value for money.
