Description: Ruby's Cafe is owned and operated by Indonesian Chef Ruby. Her mission is to provide fresh homecooked with passion from experience from working overseas inspires her delicious curries using imported ingredients unique to her cafe and her time in top Italian restaurants in Bali comes through in her perfect pasta dishes. Every plate is cooked from scratch, spring rolls,croquettes, curries, only the Rendang is cooked before as it takes 2 hours, no portions pulled from the freezer and buzzed in Micro. Ruby's is a simple open air cafe dedicated to providing tasty FRESH food with love. Sorry even though many reviews advise booking we do not take reservations works better on a rolling basis, last orders 10.00 dinner.

Really great restaurant with lovely home cooked food. We had the jalapeño poppers, butter chicken and beef rendang. The meat was so well cooked in both mains. A little more than other Indonesian on the island (about 65,000 for most mains), but don't let this put you off - the quality of the food was so much better than any other place we went to, you can tell that a good effort goes into each dish. Really nice owners too, who make you feel more than welcome.

P.S. Thanks for the ice!

Great healthy local dishes with an international twist. The croquettes and the Gado Gado salad is especially tasty. The WiFi in the restaurant is faster than most on the island too. Definitely worth a visit!

Discovered a hidden treasure on a walk about up the central lanes . No locals show you the center of the island so exsploring we went and discovered the welcoming voice of an english man Jeromy and his beautiful local wife Ruby. A cold bintang awaits and a yummy croquets . And butter chicken then the chocolate salami to top off a magnificent evening.

Good food, local and western. Burgers was good but the rendang was noting special, unfortunately. Staff was very nice and atmosphere was also good!

We read about this place on trip advisor. The food is beautiful, full of flavour and freshly cooked. Nice atmosphere, clean and friendly staff. We fell in love our waiter Weria, a local guy from Lombok with a great sense of humour, very kind and kept up with our demands for more beer! If you are staying in Gili Air you really should check this place out. It was fully booked the first night we visited (crazy for such a small island) so waited 30 mins (100% worth the wait) for a table and even went back a second night it was that great! Thanks Ruby & Jeremy!
