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.

“Unbeliveable service...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

This place has a nice setting at the end of the main strip in Gili T and looks inviting. Refuse the invitation. Service is so rude, inefficient and laughable that it is almost funny, or at least it would be if you didn't wait a long time to not be served your food and then pay a premium compared to better places on the island. The food is not bad, but no better than many other cheaper barbeques on Gili T. It gets one star as the beer as cold, otherwise would get 0.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The place looks gorgeous but everything else was a real disappointment. The service was haphazard, the food is overpriced (they claim that there is no tax or service charge but inflate the prices to accommodate and then want a tip at the end!). Service was so bad that they accused us of walking away without paying the bill!

“Seafood and eat it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The BBQ here was great, the fish was fresh and the choice was really wide, between us we tried some local fish like Mahi Mahi as well as Calamari, Prawns, swordfish and butter fish. The Salad bar was amazing, so nice to have lots of choice! Oh, and it was all you could eat, but i only managed the one trip!! We came here a couple of times, which, with so much choice on the island for dinner is a good sign that it was worth going to more than once! It's a really good place, the view across the water is great and the drinks aren't bad either. I highly recommend it.

Great food, location and decor. Had a couple of meals here during my stay and loved them both. They've done a great job with the aesthetics which makes the whole experience all the better. Def recommend

“Nothing special”

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