“Nice little spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Zipp Bar was our local for the fortnight we stayed on Gili - the food wasn't the best on the island but it could be relied upon and it was definitely one of the most sociable places to chill out. The service was great, the locals are really attentive and enthusiastic.

“Cocktails at sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Great place for cocktails on the beach at sunset! The pumpkin curry is also good and so are the huge fish kabobs.

“Excellent Fish BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We ate here practicaly every evening whilst on Gili Air....we'd visit for the good value 2 for 1 cocktails then be too tempted by the BBQ to leave! The tuna kebab was delicious as was whole BBQ-ed snapper & jack fish. All the meat is basted throughout cooking so everything is juicy and tasty. Prices are around half that charged at Scallywags next door (we didn't eat there so can't compare on taste/quality). We also tried pizza which was fine and Beef Rendang was a good choice too.

Staff are friendly and get to know you after a couple of visits. The music got a little boring - there is only so much Bob Marley & Adele one can take! And the cats aren't really that bad, you just have to shoo them away.

“The Best Place to Chill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The staff were super friendly - we were on first name terms after a few hours. The great part is they all seem to be so happy doing what they are doing. The food was great quality and snce we ate there almost every day, we tried most of the menu. The calamaris were tender and the fish was fresh. The best food was in the evenings when they do a barbacue - the kebabs were succulent and portions very generous. Their "beds" on the beach were the best place to spend the day - eating and drinking - and knowing you ae in paradise !!

“Excellent Kebabs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Amazing kebabs for 40,000 including side. The fish is also good.
Cats can get a bit annoying though.
