Description: Vista Mare is one of the best restaurants located in the north south area of Gili Air island. The menu mainly consists of international dish between western and Indonesian food. The Restaurant is literally next to the beach and has one of the best views on the island. It is strategically located at the point where the sun sets so you can relax and also enjoy from our full bar set menu while enjoying the view. If you just want to relax and enjoy the view without having to sit at the restaurant? No problem, we also have Sun beds where you can comfortably lie down, basking in the warm sun and let our waiters bring your drinks or food. Vista Mare has a solid reputation around the island for a long time and our consistency in services, food and drinks quality is a testament to ensure you have a pleasant experience.

After a couple of weeks of Indonesian food, as many Italians do, I wanted to go back to more familiar cook: the best Italian "spaghetti col tonno" I could even dream!
A post worth to be visited to taste authentic Italian food, made in front of you, as being home.
I warmly recommend it.

The best pizza I had on the island, really nice homemade pastas, friendly owners and staff. Great atmosphere. Highly recommended- you can't leave the island without eating here at least once

We had pizza and pasta here as a main and as a starter the bruchetta. The mains were delicious and my home-made pasta was just right with a lovely creamy cheesy sauce to finish it off. The starter: bruchetta could have used a better olive oil to freshen it more up and some fresh! pepper as sea salt flocks would have taken it to the next level. But still we liked it very very much and will defently come back one of these days. The service was pretty good for "indonesian standards", they have a open kitchen which was clean and sober! Definently worth the few extra meters you have to walk south of the main strip!

Great spot to see the beautiful sunset of Gili Air. Take a seat in one of their lounge chairs, have a cocktail and see the magically sunset. Don't forget your camera!

We stayed on Gili Air in May/June 2013. What a gem to find this amazing little restaurant!! We had read the reviews on Trip adviser before we left, after reading the great reviews we decided to find it and try for ourselves......Oh how we are glad we did, this was possiably the best Italian food we have ever had ( and we went to Italy 2 years ago ) The owners and staff make you feel like family, the surroundings, view and atmosphere are perfect, and the food OMG wow. We started with just a coffee and pizza one morning, but had to return daily to try there other pasta dishes. We tried some other restaurants on the island but nothing came close, we were staying on the other side of the island, but it was well worth the 30 min walk to get there. With a perfect sunset, delicous food, smiling attentive staff this was the perfect dinner for me and my partner on the island paradise of Gili Air...all topped off with a shot of homemade Lemonchino.....wow great memories, Thank you!!! We took some great photos of the restaurant and staff but unfortunatly left it in the taxi on the way to the airport!! :(
