Egoiste is nice place to spend sunny day on their sun beds. But notice that there is the minimum order of 50 000 IDR while being there. They might come and ask if you gonna order anything or go away. Sometimes might feels a little bit unfriendly. Food is mainly ok, and chicken pesto pasta is excellent choice. Also carbonara is great. Service might vary a lot, as there is personnel changing. Clearly they have some things to be improved, not the professional personnel. You might have to wait your food a long time, even some Coke or other drink might take time (even they are on the fridge next to the desk).

The owner is French. On Trawangan this is very popular place, so just try it and you know, if it is good for you. We liked the place many times, but sometimes just the service level is not so good.

We enjoyed our meal here. The fish from the BBQ took a while to arrive (certainly longer than you would expect) but it was delicious when it did come. What we were really impressed by was the fact that there were two places where stray cats could be fed on the sand within the outside bit of the restaurant and that one of the girls working in the kitchen kept coming out and giving them leftovers. There are so many stray, starving cats in Gili Trawangan and this act of kindness really touched us and made us want to eat there again.

This is a nice restaurant.
It Offers free wifi, and it has big beds in the beach to lay down latter.
Burgers are great.
You must try the home made ice cream they sell. Very good!

My husband and I went to Gili Trewangan on our honeymoon. We visited Egoiste for dinner one night as we noticed the nice fish table out the front. What a mistake! We advise people to stay clear of this so called 'restaurant'. We ordered 2 mains (fish kebab and prawn cocktail with side of fries) and 2 drinks (beer and g&t). Drinks took 40mins to arrive, after having to ask 2 separate waiters for then. As for food, chips turned up (separate from the mains) but we didn't get any other food that night. After asking after our food on 4 separate occasions and waiting a total 2hrs, there was no sign and we gave up. Understandably we were angry and all the arrogant and incompetent French manager could do was tell us not to raise our voices in front of his staff. No apologies or anything. We paid for drinks and left in disbelief. Avoid this place like the plague!

We sat outside of this resturant for two days, the atmosphere is lovely, but the service is terrible. Even though the owner was there and looked so stressed. It was a nightmare to get served.
The food was good though.
It just positioned on the best bit of beach.
Trying to be fair, because its our favourite place to sit.
