Amazing food for super cheap (even in Gili standards)

I only went once but had i had more time i would have gone more! Jeremy is English and super friendly, and his wife Ruby is the chef. I had the chicken satay which is the best i've had in my 10 days in indonesia! I was also tempted to try the potato croquettes, even though i try to eat... read more

Formerly the Warung Gili, Ruby's kitchen was one of the cleanest, freshest, and friendliest Warung's / kitchen's I've ever come across in my travels through South East Asia ! Hands down, the chicken satay (left marinating in spices overnight) was the most authentic and tastiest chicken satay I've ever had- the quality and presentation reminded me of fancy restaurants in...

This brand new run Ruby's Cafe (which was formerly run by the previous owner as Warung Gili) is the best food we have come across on our trip so far. Ruby and her husband Jeremy are wonderful hosts, make delicious meals, and make you feel welcome and comfortable like you are sitting down in your own living room. We eat... More

I ordered gado gado with papaya juice. Make sure to order juice without milk. That way you more purely taste the juice. The gado gado was nice, also beause it is one of the few dishes that contains a good portion of vegetables here in Indonesia.

After we've spent 5 nights on Gili we realized that one of the best rated warungs was just across the street from our Bungalows (airbnb, Gili Guest House). So we went there for our last meal on this beautiful island as the only guests. We passed by this venue several times and hardly saw someone eating there but during low... More

We got to Warung Gili after passing it so many times everyday to and from our hotel. We tried it on one night and the food turned out to be very good and priced reasonably. It's pretty much a "local" place but frequented by a lot of backpacking tourists. Food was quick, tasty and definitely good value for money as... More

This warung is not by the seaside and seems local with lots of dishes to choose from. The food was soooo good! And the prices were very good value as you also get the rice with it. Juices were around 10 000 IDR. Delicious! Staff was super friendly.

We stumbled upon Warung Gili while wandering through the village. It's a standard good indonesian warung. Cheap, fresh, tastey food cooked while you wait. The chicken satay and peanut sauce was particularly amazing

Do not reconmend to visit this restaurant at night as you have to walk a really long, dark and narrow path to get there. We had so many mosquito bites from the walk. As the restaurant is rather deep in there is no sea breeze and it is very warm. Most of the BBQ items were not avaliable (not even... More

Went to this place after reading trip advisor reviews. Was a good solid place to eat and cheap. Reasonable range on the menu of tasty Indonesion dishes. Had meals at the Warung Kampung across the lane several times and actually found that to be better. For the price you can't go wrong!
