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.

“Great stop any time of the day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We managed to sample everything from breakfast to the bbq dinner. Our favourite meal was actually lunch: a favourite was the 'pizza lover' sandwich with fries. Excellent choice! We also enjoyed the bbq: however slightly mixed experiences. The first dinner was excellent, however service was very erratic on the second visit: for example things ordered didn't show up. Overall however, a sound choice on the island.

“Save your $$ and go to the Beach House Restaurant next door.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

I don't usually write reviews but this was by far the worst experience thus far on Gili T. The service was terrible, the server was rude, we waited over an hour and a half and the food was either not as they were ordered, forgotten about until we complained, or extremely overpriced for what you received. They never once took any ownership for the mistakes just walked away without a sorry or explanation. Some of my friends just ended up cancelling their order as they waited to let us know 30-40 minutes after ordering the meal that it was no longer available. If you are looking for a nice place to go out I'd suggest anywhere else but here!

“Worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Ive worked in the restaurant industry for over 10 years and I understand that it is a fast paced job and miscommunications happen all the time. However, after waiting for 30 mins we had half of our tables meals show up and the other half was told that the kitchen was out of their food and they had to order somethig else. This is not an easy thing to tell a table of hungry people and I understand that, but we were never apologized to or treated with any kindness what so ever. In fact the server was extremely rude and after waiting for another 30 minutes we asked about the replacement order and he asked us in a very rude tone if we wanted the food or not. We also were told they were out of ribs and much later on we saw some on the bbq. We ALSO didny receive someomes meal for over an hour while this was going on (which they seemed to have forgotten about) and he was also treated with terrrible customer service. To top it all off they charged us for the meals that we did not receive. There was a table beside us that were having similar problems which leads me to believe that this is not an isolated situation. For a nice, relaxing dining experience go somewhere else.

“better options”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

I'm not sure what the fuss is over this place. We had breakfast here- french toast with maple syrup bananas (no maple syrup, so honey was used instead).
The food wasn't great and service wasn't splendid either. For the price I'm sure you could find better. Maybe lunch/dinner is better.

“over rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

The selection of fresh fish etc was great and food was good but not amazing and over priced. The staff were pretty useless, we had to go to them to be served as it took that long.
