Lovely view, great service and yummy cocktails made by Deddy. We really enjoyed it and came three times while on our stay in Gili Air. Staff had time to chat with you, lovely atmosphere and best cocktails on the island. Must visit.

Hi Chris, We will keep working on our timing, but are glad you enjoyed the food in the end! With a nice ocean view, we can get away with slow cooking our meals. : )

Pretty good service, we were there during Ramadan so the staff was (for understandable reasons) a bit tired during fasting. Still friendly! Not the best breakfast, but the view definitely makes up for that! Very good lunch, try the baguettes and you won't be disappointed.More

The Waterfront has lovely sea views and the food is OK, not super special but tasty and not too expensive.

During our dive course we lunched here every day. The food was good but to be honest, the desserts where great. Dessert lunches are the best ;)
