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.

A small and very busy restaurant on a back street in Gili Air. I had the best beef rendang ever. Either book or go early to ensure you get in.

We went for dinner during our holidays in Gili Air. The restaurant does not look any different from many of the other warungs in the island but the food is clearly a step above the rest. The pumpkin curry is excellent! Best Indonesian food of our whole holidays. No doubt!

Ruby’s is a must visit whilst in Gili Air. The food is delicious and the lovely waitresses were so nice and polite and made us feel very welcome. Definitely try the potato croquettes and Beef Rendang Curry - food that makes you smile!

Everything is very fresh, thats also why it can happen, that some food or drinks are no available. In oir case it was the case with 1 meal and 2 drinks, and as we chose this place because of the famous burger, we were a little disappointed. The environment is nice, lining up is possible, but guests are changing pretty fast.

thank you for taking time to review Ruby's, I am sorry that the Burger wasn't available, during this time following Ramadan everything shuts for the big holiday to celebrate the end of Ramadan, Eid, at this time many suppliers are closed and only just start to open up next week and being on an Island the logistics take a bit longer, once again i am sorry.
