Vista Mare is one of the best restaurants located in the north south area of Gili Air island. The menu mainly consists of international dish between western and Indonesian food. The Restaurant is literally next to the beach and has one of the best views on the island. It is strategically located at the point where the sun sets so you can relax and also enjoy from our full bar set menu while enjoying the view. If you just want to relax and enjoy the view without having to sit at the restaurant? No problem, we also have Sun beds where you can comfortably lie down, basking in the warm sun and let our waiters bring your drinks or food. Vista Mare has a solid reputation around the island for a long time and our consistency in services, food and drinks quality is a testament to ensure you have a pleasant experience.

Beautiful sunset!

Great pizza and pasta. Harmony Spa is good too. Came back here twice. The beach is also good for swimming. Not much for snorkeling though.

I visited Vista Mare 2 years ago when it was owned by a lovely italian couple and the food was AMAZING!! But not any longer. Returning to Gili Air I was excited to get a taste of Italy again...this is definitely not the case. I asked where the italian couple were and they have unfortunately moved on. Vista Mare is...

I clicked some of the best pictures during my trip, siting in the chair at the outdoor space of Vista mare. I did not find the pizza as spectacular as some people note here. The drinks were average too. But since this place was located close to our hotel (grand sunset - separate review for it), we did eat here... More

If you want real espresso and you're staying on the Northern end of the island, this is the place to go! This coffee shop and Italian restaurant also has a slightly "classier" vibe than a lot of the beach themed places on the island, and has a beautiful shaded seating area set out overlooking the water.

My family and I were in Gili in December. Our first night was spent in Gili Air, and my father looked on Trip Advisor for some advice on restaurants since we had never been before. Being Italian, he selected Vista Mare as it was extremely well rated. On the way there, we asked for directions from another restaurant not too... More

On my walk around the island I stopped here to watch the sunset and saw the name and remembered that this restaurant was in the top three for gili air and raved about the pizza and pasta. The setting is smart and upscale. I ordered the pizza . It had the strangest base I have ever tasted. It was like... More

Look, it has the title Italian but the ownership has changed BUT it had some of the best Indonesian food and drinks on the island. We had the Rendang and it was fantastic. Their drinks are strong and sunset views are perfect. Highly recommend.

We had our third attempt at an authentic Italian restaurant - just for a change of food after 2months in Indonesia. We were not lucky - first one - dolce vita was closed even though it had the owners returning on the 18th February (it was the 3rd March). Second one Danima served up corn and pumpkin soup as minestrone... More
