“best place we found to eat on gilli meno”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

It was a good walk to the other side of the island but well worth it. a lovely atmosphere and the owner was very friendly and helped us with the menu so we new what we were ordering. Food was excellent and cheap. Live music was a bonus. The walk back was a bit scary at times, thank god we had a torch.

“A Must visit place in Gili Meno !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We stop here and had our Bintang after a long walk around the island. Perfect location on the beach with bamboo chairs and tables, nice music and you can go for a dip in the sea. Its a perfect place to chill with sunset view and reasonable price for a good food!

But what got us really hooked up with the place was the live local band performance with just plain guitar and wooden box drum. We can see that they're devoted Bob Marley music as you just name any of Bob's songs and they will rock you on! They really jammed and sing their heart out even with only 3 tables occupied.

The sfaff are friendly and makes you feel like you in the band. Great shisha and they let us try the local wine! Chill out at Sasak Cafe on our last nite at Gili Meno definitely a great end and highlight of our trip!

Thank you Sasak brothers band! Kamu memang awesome!!!

“Indonesian kitchen with pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Perfect kitchen combined with a flavour of Indonesia - nice staff who makes a visit here to an experiance that you don't find in many places. Live music performed by local musicians nearly every night. Great value for your money.

“Fun Place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is the place to go for ALL your Rastafarian needs (wink wink).

The servers are musicians, and reggae is worshipped here without a doubt. The fish and chicken were yummy, but sadly the ice in the drinks tasted of chemicals - so make sure you order ice on the side and taste it first, not in the drink. Maybe it was just a bad batch, but it was not pleasant.

Beach is a bit dirty here, thanks to the soddom and gomorrah going on across the water on Gili T. Witnessed an old dude step on a huge rusty nail - so be careful if you are walking in the washed-up flotsam!

Anyways, this was certainly the most CHILL place on the island. Very GREEN and RELAXED. Message received? ENJOY!

-Alex
