“Rustic but good and wholesome”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

I enjoyed eating at this place. It is not slick but the food was always good and didn't take too long to arrive at the table. Not exactly a standout place, but reasonable and respectable as an option to other more developed and professional places on Gili Air. Definitely worth a go.

“The best place to relax in Gili Air”
Reviewed 28 June 2013 via mobile

A top choice in Gili Air for : indonesian food (Andy the boss is also the fisherman of the restaurant), drinks and cocktails, nice and affordable bungalows, relaxing atmosphere with most of the time a live guitarplayer ... The service is really fast and friendly (no need to check your bill !). Thanks for your great welcome guys ...

“Good food, great staff, owner a bit tantrumic..”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

The food is great, fresh fish every night, and I highly recommend the pineapple coconut shake. There are hammock to hang out all day and I made sure I took advantage of these!
Only slight negative point - we had a bit of misunderstanding with the owner with regards to a fishing trip. Unfortunately he choose to deal with it by blanking us for the whole duration of our stay, but we didn't let that tarnish a great experience.
