Description: Scallywags restaurant has become a favorite for locals and tourist alike. Food is shipped in daily, with organic greens from Bali. The beautiful island location and the freshest food on the island makes it a great place for breakfast, lunch, sunset, dinner and party nights. Scallywags is the original and the best place to enjoy our nightly BBQ, starting at 6pm. Guests can choose from a large range of sashimi grade fish and Australian imported steaks, to name a few. A complimentary salad bar is included for all BBQ items. Not hungry? Our trained bartenders can whip you up an amazing refreshing cocktail for you to enjoy while soaking up the views over the ocean.

Visited this restaurant again based on our experience last year. This time, not so good. Food was poor and service a little rude.

“One of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

We stumbled across Scallywags while out riding one day, decided to have lunch here and it became one of our favourite places to eat during our stay on Gili T. While we waited for food we were able to enjoy a quick dip in the cool waters at the front of the resturant.
The food was excellent, large meals bursting with flavour. The fajitas were a favourite amongst a few of us along with the tapas platter.
The service is like anywhere else on Gili T, very laid back.
Will definitely return to Scallywags on my next visit to Gili T.

“Amazing food, but several waiters seem to suffer from amnesia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

We ate here several times during our stay at the Scallywags Resort in October 2012. We loved their breakfast in the mornings and their BBQ food with the salad bar in the evenings. The Frozen Tropical Slushy is also great!

The only thing that bothered us is that they got something wrong in almost every order. Usually a side dish or a drink. They were friendly though and happy to fix any problems.

One time though, I ordered the ribs with french fries as side dish and got baked potatoes instead. I informed our waiter (a young boy), who got a little shy and asked us in the most friendly way possible to just eat the baked potatoes instead of having french fries. If we really wanted french fries, we would have to pay extra. It was surprising and unbelievable to hear that response. Instead of letting it upset us, we told him it was ok and I just asked again to another waiter (a girl, little bit older), who apologized for the mistake and quickly brought us a plate of french fries.

“Deserts are amazin”

We ate here twice during our stay. Great food especially the deserts. The services was ok, not all of the people seem to like working there.
