Great food and reasonable prices. They closed for the month of Feb the day after we visited so we were pleased we had the chance to visit if only once

Ordered the spaghetti, potato croquettes, and the wrap. The spaghetti was just plain. Nothing too fantastic about it. The croquettes were great. The wrap was decent. Overall my husband had the wrap and enjoyed it. Overall pricing was a bit on the pricier side for what it was.

We came here and we shared Jalapeño poppers. They are a must. Stuffed with cream cheese and rolled in bread crumbs. Devine. They are a good price too. I also had the pumpkin curry. It's possibly one of the nicest curries I have ever had anywhere. The chef that made it has blessed hands and taste buds. My boyfriend had... More

Just one word : Astonishing Best food I had during my trip on the gili islands. Food cooked fresh and to the order. Tastes amazing. Restaurant always busy in the evening so you may have to wait a bit but it's really worth the wait. 5 stars and possibly the best eat on gili.

We have been treating ourselves to the fresh and flavoursome food at Ruby's for a couple of years now. This is why we keep coming back; nothing is frozen here, they only stock what is freshly available everyday and cook it until sold out. It's friendly, professional, super clean with some authentic recipes and flavours. We really feel nourished every... More

Quaint little Warung off the main drag. The jalapeño poppers are a standout and judging by the return visitors the potato croquettes are also popular! Wish we had another day here to try everything. Staff are lovely. We also had the Rendang curry,Ayam chicken and butter chicken. Good portions and our party of five very happy :)

Currently sitting here at Ruby's, just finished my chicken yellow curry and Gado Gado which my partner and I shared. This was yum and we will be coming back. Good staff and wonderful service, good ambience. Glad we checked Trip Advisor ratings that brought us here.

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 oders 3.30 lunch and 9.30 dinner.
